TRUMPF Inc. (TRUMPF) and A3DM Technologies have entered a collaboration agreement to develop specialty metal powders and laser parameters.
As part of the agreement, A3DM Technologies will have a TRUMPF TruPrint 1000 installed at their research facility in Burlington, VT. With several parameters and cylinder sizes to choose from, the TruPrint 1000 is perfectly suited for material and parameter development.
“The TruPrint 1000 is a compact, high-precision powder bed system offering flexibility and performance with the robustness and high-quality customers expect from a TRUMPF product,” said Ralf Kimmel, general manager of the TRUMPF Laser Technology Center in Plymouth, MI.
“A3DM welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with TRUMPF in the development of operating parameters for our refractory and precious metal powders. The TruPrint 1000 platform will allow A3DM the flexibility to perfect a broad range of materials while providing a stable path for our future needs in larger AM production systems,“ said Steven Adler, chief executive officer of A3DM Technologies in Burlington VT.
