The Trulaser 7040 from Trumpf has two cutting heads powered by a 6kW disk laser with beam splitting and can process two parts simultaneously.

This Trulaser is equipped with the Trudisk 6001 laser that offers a cost-efficient ratio of energy consumption per meter cut, said Trumpf.

When it is not cutting, the laser automatically switches to stand-by mode, in which it uses virtually no power.

The laser delivers 3kW of laser power per head, but that doesn’t mean cutting speed is halved.

It is reduced only slightly with thin sheet and virtually not at all with mild steel.

As 3kW is sufficient for the process, the cost share of the laser per metre cut falls by 50 per cent with the dual heads.

As an alternative, the full 6kW can also be concentrated on a single head, enabling sheets up to 25mm thick to be processed.

In either case, the beam is guided by fibre optic cable from the resonator to the cutting head.

Another feature is the use of carbon fibre components.

The materials used are proven in the racing car and aerospace industries and have allowed Trumpf to develop a cross beam that is both lightweight and rigid.

This improves the machine’s dynamics, increasing acceleration up to 25m/s2 and a maximum simultaneous axis speed of 304m/min.

All machine axes are equipped with frictionless linear direct drives.

The acceleration in X- and Y-axis is 25 per cent greater than on the machine’s predecessor.

However, values this high can only be utilised reliably when the Z-axis that positions the laser head height, can match the pace.

For an optimal cut, the distance between the cutting nozzle and sheet cannot vary.

Compensation at high speed must be made for even slight unevenness in the metal sheet.

As a result the Z-axis should therefore be the most dynamic and capable of rapid offsets.

On the Trulaser 7040 this is certainly the case, with the Z-axis achieving 30m/s2.

Other Trumpf processes that have proven their value on the Trulaser CO2 flatbed machines are now also available on this solid-state laser cutting machine.

These include Controlline for capacitative height and process regulation, Flyline for on-the-fly insertion, the Focusline automatic focal point adjustment and fusion cutting with nitrogen, Nitroline.

The Trulaser 7040 is also fully compatible with the standard Trutops software.

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.
