Trumpf will exhibit the Trulaser 3030 New laser cutter at its Open 08 show.

It is equipped with an energy-saving 5kW CO2 laser for cutting sheet up to 25mm thick.

Instead of a three-phase servo motor, the long X axis is powered by a gearless motor with very high torque.

Y and Z are driven by wear-free, non-lube linear motors.

These changes increase simultaneous axis speed considerably, from 85m per minute on the original design to 140m per minute on the Trulaser 3030 New.

Additionally, the Fastline process is now a standard feature.

It ensures a smooth transition between piercing and cutting, to reduce processing time for thin sheet by an average of 20 per cent.

When the laser is not cutting, the radial fan goes into standby mode to save power.

A significant benefit is the inclusion of a universal cutting head for the entire range of sheet thicknesses.

Where there was once the need for up to three cutting heads to be exchanged, according to sheet thickness, the Trulaser 3030 New requires just one.

The optional nozzle changer, with 18 nozzles, has also been completely re-designed and now only takes 20 seconds to make the change.

Machine and process protection is also enhanced.

Should the sheet and cutting head collide, an intelligent cutting head interface protects the machine from damage.

It works like a ski binding, releasing the cutting head on contact and allowing it to return to its home position.

In the event of more serious collisions, the operator can manually reset the cutting head.

Another problem that can be easily overcome on the Trulaser 3030 New is inconsistent sheet quality.

If a ‘bad sheet’ reaches the machine, the Adjustline function can be brought into play.

At the push of a button, the appropriate cutting parameters can be selected, ensuring maximum material usage and continued production.

Setup flexibility is also far superior on the Trulaser 3030 New.

Previously, sheet could only be fed parallel to the machine.

Now it is also possible for the pallet changer to be positioned perpendicular to the machine.

This reduces the required installation space by about 20 per cent.

A further advantage of the perpendicular position is that it provides the operator with a view of the entire process from the control panel.

The automation options available on the original Trulaser Series 3000 are also available on the Trulaser 3030 New, but there is one important addition.

Liftmaster Compact is available, to help the customer achieve maximum productivity in minimum space.

The control panel and the entire operating concept of the Trulaser 3030 New have been completely redesigned.

The result is an ergonomic, free swivel-mounted panel, a self-explanatory touch screen and a control system that needs just a few command clicks.

All systems and components that need regular service are located in one area at the back of the machine and are easily accessed via a single service point.

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.
