The Trumatic 3000 Fibre punch/laser combination machine can be used for jobs such as preparing joint edges for welding.

It shares a fibre-guided Trudisk laser with the Trulaser Robot 5020 cell in the Trumpf Laser Network, an arrangement that increases the utilisation rate of the beam source.

Generally, the laser is only active for a brief period of the part-processing time in a mid-range combination machine such as the Trumatic 3000, which was previously only available with a CO2 laser.

The rest of the time it is idle, while the machine is either punching or being prepared for a job.

Similar beam-on times apply for laser-welding systems, where adjustments regularly have to be made to aspects such as jigs and fixtures.

The most efficient method is to have the Trumatic 3000 Fibre and Trulaser Robot 5020 systems working in parallel, according to the company.

The fibre-guided Trudisk 3001 with its 3kW of laser power can switch from one application to the other in a matter of milliseconds.

The machines are supported by the intelligent Laser Network and are able to automatically make use of the laser beam as required.

This means that whenever the combination machine is performing punching operations and the laser is not required, its energy is available to the robot cell.

Equally, when the cell is being prepared or adjusted, it relinquishes the laser to the Trumatic 3000.

Allocation of the energy-efficient solid-state laser can also occur in other formats.

An example would be using it for the combination machine in one layer and for laser welding in the next.

The laser beam is fibre-guided so that it can be flexibly deployed.

As it has been specifically designed for thin sheet metal up to 4mm thick, it is suitable for combination processing and can help to reduce cutting costs per metre.

In addition to sharing use of the laser, the two systems further complement each other.

This simplifies jig and fixture engineering, making even smaller batches viable and extending the application scope of laser welding.

TECHNOLOGY THAT KEEPS YOU AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION

Remaining profitable today is a challenge and staying competitive in the future requires solutions that can adapt to your every-changing business needs. The technology built into TRUMPF precision machinery gives fabricators the flexibility to increase the efficiency of their high-quality, close-tolerance part production – in small batches or high volume jobs.

TRUMPF ranks among the world's leading manufacturers of production technology and industrial lasers. Technical solutions for its customers have been the company's focus since 1923. In every technology group TRUMPF machines are designed to minimise unit costs and to provide reliability and a rapid return on investment.

All machines are designed to accept flexible and expandable automation. The choices range from simple productivity gains from features such as automatic laser nozzle exchange through to all the elements necessary for full lights out production.

In the field of CO2 and solid state production lasers the TRUMPF product spectrum is now unparalleled and its experience extends from OEM systems to small hand-manipulation processing stations through to large 5-axis machines. It has competence at any level of power from 2W to 20kW.

The production processes for which TRUMPF lasers are designed are numerous and include welding, cutting, drilling, tube processing, surface treatment, additive manufacturing and component marking.

TRUMPF punching is much more than simply making holes. The TruPunch range of machines provides complete part processing – including forming – and virtually eliminates the need for secondary processing. And in its TruMatic series these benefits are combined with laser cutting; the best of both worlds.

The TRUMPF TruBend press brakes use patented technology to ensure that the bending angle is precise, right from the start and can handle small, complex or single components cost efficiently. Completing the main technology groups are the TRUMPF TruTool range of power and pneumatic portable fabrication equipment.

Under the umbrella of TruServices TRUMPF provides a highly comprehensive range of business services to support its customers. This starts with finance – TRUMPF operates its own bank – and includes full software support both at machine and business level. A wide range of predictive maintenance and service packages are also available as is application and product specific training.

With TRUMPF nothing is left to chance. In every aspect of its business, customers can be assured of quality and exceptionally value for money.
