TRUMPF and Siemens to offer a software solution for additive manufacturing of metal parts

By Stephanie Aldrete

TRUMPF and Siemens to offer a software solution for optimized and streamlined additive manufacturing of metal parts with TRUMPF printing machines – from part design to 3D printing.

Laser system manufacturer TRUMPF and Siemens announced a new partnership to help industrialize laser metal fusion technology and make the additive manufacturing process for metal parts an integral part of the production process. The two companies are pooling their strengths and working together to develop a software solution for the design and preparation of 3D printed metal parts. The aim is to integrate and streamline the entire powder-bed-based laser metal fusion (LMF) process for TRUMPF printing machines into Siemens NX™ software. The comprehensive offering will address part design and engineering for additive manufacturing as well as 3D print preparation with integrated TRUMPF build processor technology.

“Our combined solution will offer customers a high degree of process reliability thanks to its use of smart product models through all phases of the process,” said Tony Hemmelgarn, CEO and President, Siemens PLM Software. “There will be no need for data conversion because the tools for design, simulation, 3D printing and NC programming of metal parts are integrated into one system.”
