Trumpf has announced the launch of the Trubend Series 7000 press brake, which the company said offers more speed, less weight and easier operation.

The length of time a press brake needs to complete the bending process depends on the travel speed of the beam and how quickly the back gauge reaches its position.

The less weight that needs to be moved the better and Trumpf said this is why the Trubend 7000 press brakes have a back gauge made from light carbon fibre.

The contact surfaces on the fingers of the back gauge are of hardened steel.

High speed and acceleration values for the pressure bar are provided by a low-maintenance gearless direct drive.

With its height- and angle-adjustable support surfaces, a pivoting control panel and seated operation the Trubend 7000 press brake also provides good working conditions for the operator.

All bending stations can be easily reached while seated making it comfortable for the operator to work at the machine for longer periods of time.

The Trumpf Medical Division has also contributed to the design of the machine.

LED lighting is incorporated in front and behind the beam.

These lights emit minimal heat radiation and provide clear illumination of the workpiece.

A laser diode also projects a bend line onto the surface of the metal sheet, facilitating the accurate guiding of the workpiece into the back gauge.

The Trubend Series 7000 is primarily designed for the production of parts that are no bigger than DIN A3.

This size of component is particularly common in the production of automation and electrical equipment and the compact size, speed and low energy consumption of this press brake ensure cost-effective production.

Two models complete the series – Trubend 7180 and the Trubend 7036 – and it is the latter that makes its UK debut at Trumpf Open ’08.

It has a press force of 360kN and a bending length of 1020mm.

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.
