Get Connected with TRUMPF at FABTECH

 FARMINGTON, Conn., October 28, 2016 – In booth C35041 at FABTECH 2016, TRUMPF will highlight its TruConnect approach to manufacturing through the customized production of a stainless steel Jeep. FABTECH attendees will receive live production updates as TRUMPF’s innovative fabricating machinery, automation solutions and supporting technologies working together to keep information and processes connected like never before. All the latest offerings from TRUMPF will be on display, including the new TruMatic 1000 fiber and the TruPrint 1000 for additive manufacturing. In addition, the TruServices team will be on hand to discuss how TRUMPF supports the entire life cycle of your equipment with the best financing options, training, consumables, tooling, service and other solutions.


TruMatic 1000 fiber:

The TruMatic 1000 fiber with a 3kW TruDisk laser is making its North American debut at FABTECH 2016. TRUMPF’s first entry-level punch laser combination machine with a solid-state laser features a revolutionary modular design which enables users to add to it as business grows. The patented Delta Drive moves both the electric punching head and the laser along the Y-axis while the sheet moves in the other direction. This increases machine dynamics, productivity and process stability, contributes to a significantly compact footprint, and enables material handling options such as the SheetMaster Compact. The machine’s integrated protective housing, a requirement for safe laser processing, automatically moves out of the way during punching operations for maximum visibility and accessibility.


TruPrint 1000:

The new TruPrint 1000 for additive manufacturing enables users to build metal components layer by layer using any laser weldable metal in powdered form. This laser metal fusion (LMF) process is ideal for parts that are complex in their geometry, such as those with internal channels and hollow spaces, short production runs and individual parts. All components, including the laser, optics, process enclosure, filter unit and control cabinet are found within the TruPrint 1000’s compact housing.


TruLaser: laser processing

TRUMPF will also highlight the TruLaser 2030 fiber with a 4kW TruDisk laser and the LiftMaster Shuttle which provides customers with flexible automation layouts for lights-out production. The TruLaser 2030 fiber is now available with BrightLine fiber for increased performance in cutting thin to thick materials. The TRUMPF booth will also feature the TruLaser 3030 fiber with a 6kW TruDisk laser, BrightLine fiber and the Productivity Package which enables fabricators to cut stainless steel and aluminum up to one inch with exceptional quality. This machine will be shown with the LiftMaster Compact for loading and unloading, and the PartMaster for quick and ergonomic part removal. TRUMPF will also feature the TruLaser Cell 3000, a 5-axis laser machine for fine cutting, precision welding and additive manufacturing, and the TruLaser Robot 5020 a cost effective solution for entry into laser welding. The TruLaser Robot was designed for both high volume and high mix production.


TruBend: precision bending

The recently redesigned TruBend 5130 press brake, the compact and highly efficient electric TruBend 7036 press brake and the TruBend Cell 7000, the world’s fastest system for automated bending of small parts, will also be on display at FABTECH. The hydraulic TruBend 5130 features a press force of 141 tons, a six-axis backgauge and two patented angle measurement systems for maximum precision in bending. The I-Axis enables the machine to shift the die bed from one position to the next for hemming, multiple radius tools, or multiple height tools all in a single setup.


TruMark: permanent part marking

With high pulse frequencies and superior pulse-to-pulse stability, the TruMark 5020 is the ideal solution for metal or plastic applications where high speed and superior edge quality are required. This fiber laser is especially impressive when marking metal as it delivers high quality customized engraved or marked results in short processing times. At FABTECH 2016 the TruMark 5020 will be shown in a TruMark Station 5000.


TruTool: portable power tools

TRUMPF’s display at FATBTECH would not be complete without its line of portable power tools for cutting, fastening, beveling and deburring sheet metal. The highlighted tools include the extremely light TruTool TKF 700 beveller for weld preparation. The tool is ideal for flat sheet metal as well as pipes and can be used in any direction including overhead or in a workstation. In addition, the TruTool TSC 100 slat cleaner will also be on display. This unique tool removes slag build-up on the support slats of 2D laser cutting machines without interrupting production and automatically adjusts to the thickness of the slag to maintain impressive working speeds as it travels.


You can find TRUMPF in booth C35041 at FABTECH, held November 16-18, 2016, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.
