The Trumpf L20 flat bed laser’s universal cutting head provides optimum productivity in thin-sheet processing for Eminox, a manufacturer of stainless-steel exhausts and emission-control systems.

Its manufacturing capacity is tuned for low- to medium-volume requirements, where flexibility, responsiveness and quick turn around are extremely important.

To ensure it could optimise production of its thin-gauge components, Eminox specified its new Trumpf L20 with two cutting heads, one universal and the other high speed.

The company machines mild steel up to 15mm thick, but also a lot stainless steel in 16 or 18 gauge.

Although the universal cutting head on the Trumpf L20 is equal to this task, for applications where high productivity for thin-sheet cutting is a prerequisite, Trumpf also offers an optional high-speed cutting head.

Eminox estimates that it will achieve a 30 per cent increase in productivity on its Trumpf L20.

It has also been able to include the production of flanges on this machine, a process that previously required subcontracted secondary drilling.

This is made possible by the Trumpf feature Contourline, a technique for achieving the best quality holes.

Its pulsed cutting allows holes to be created that are much smaller in diameter than the material thickness.

To further boost productivity, Eminox also plans to exploit the larger bed size of the Trumpf L20.


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.
