Trumpf’s new Trutool TSC100 slat cleaner is designed to remove accumulated slag resulting from stainless steel, mild steel or aluminium laser processing.

It is said to be quick, clean, time saving and highly effective.

Not only are the slats cleaned on the sides but also in the hard-to-reach spaces in between.

The result is a clean flatbed laser machine.

The Trutool TSC100 automatically adapts to different slag thicknesses and the operator can move the tool up to the pallet frame.

It is said to be easy to handle and can be comfortably operated by one person.

On flatbed laser machines with a pallet changer, cleaning can be in parallel to production.

According to the company, clean slats are important to the process stability of the laser cutting machine.

If slag is allowed to build up, not only is the quality of the process compromised but so too is the quality of the finished part.

As the Trutool TSC100 makes the job straightforward, there is no need to let this happen.

The slat cleaner can be used on practically all conventional flatbed laser machines with laser power up to 7kW, enabling slats to be cleaned several times before replacement becomes necessary.

This can yield substantial cost savings when compared with manual slag removal.

Until the end of June 2011, the Trutool TSC100 is available at a special introductory price of GBP2,200.


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.
