TRUMPF has introduced the TruBend Series 5000 press brake. Using a new control concept, the machines are said to be very easy to operate, with two angle measuring systems — TCB and ACB — guaranteeing extremely high accuracy.

The high-productivity, all-purpose TRUMPF machines, which offer high axis speeds and acceleration rates as well as innovative operating aids, come equipped with an on-demand servo drive that features four-cylinder drive technology. The servo drive is dynamic and quiet in operation and delivers more productivity than a conventional drive. It is also eco-friendly as it consumes energy only during the bending process.

The Touchpoint TruBend control is simple to use. Machine operators will quickly learn how to use the different views, which focus on the essentials while still providing all the familiar options. A realistic 3D visualisation incorporating collision monitoring is also available. The user interface is engineered with the demands of everyday production in mind. The machine can be operated without a mouse, using a 21.5in monitor, which is equipped with a multi-touch function and can even be used wearing work gloves. Operators can swivel the monitor into whatever position is convenient and have quick access to direct help when needed.

To cut down on walking distances and increase productivity, operators can also use an additional mobile control unit. Operators can position the MobileControl Pro anywhere along the press beam — that way it is always within reach and saves them numerous trips to the fixed control panel. A 3.5in colour display enables them to input all the directions they might need for the bending process while standing directly at the machine, including instructions to switch to the next/previous bending step or to correct the angle and axis positions.

The TruBend Series 5000 features the MagicShoe, a work shoe fitted with smart sensor. This makes it easy for the operator to move around and initiate the stroke wherever they are standing at the machine. Dragging and relocating foot pedals becomes a thing of the past, and the space in front of the machine remains clear. MagicShoe has its own type approval examination, and its safety has been tested and approved by the TÜV inspection institution and certification authority. Using it is completely safe and there is no chance of accidentally initiating a stroke.

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.
