Collaboration in the Field of Additive Manufacturing
Metal-based additive manufacturing provides new possibilities for component design. Therefore two market participants join forces for the joint handling of the market for additive manufacturing processes in the die casting sector.
Trumpf Laser- und Systemtechnik GmbH, Ditzingen, has been collaborating since May 2018 in the field of 3D Printing with the Engineering Company Laupp, Markgröningen.
The collaboration‘s main objective is the joint handling of the market for additive manufacturing processes in the die casting sector. Customers in this market segment will in the future benefit from optimal tempering solutions for demanding (die) casting tools using conformal tempering through 3D Printing.
Laupp has had long-time experience in the development, construction, simulation, manufacturing and consulting regarding die casting tools and foundry technology. With joint tool projects Trumpf and Laupp seek to show the capability and applicability of Laser Metal Fusion, powder bed-based laser melting, in die casting applications, and together extend our technology leadership.
„We are pleased to have found company Laupp as a partner whose know-how in tool design and construction we can now combine with the possibilities provided by additive manufacturing, especially with respect to conformal tempering, that make die casting tools even more productive“, says Rainer Grünauer, Marketing Director additive manufacturing at Trumpf.
