Trumpf has announced that the latest software release for the Trubend series 5000 press brakes has the potential to reduce piece part costs significantly.

A video on the company’s website illustrates the claim.

On a split screen, a box part measuring 1,000 x 600 x 1.5mm is produced simultaneously on a Trubend running the new TASC 6000 v6 software and also its forerunner, v5.2.

Both screens show the operator making 10 bends at three stations, but the new software allows him to complete the task 24 per cent faster.

Instead of taking two minutes and eight seconds, the process takes one minute and 36 seconds.

Trumpf said several features contribute to this performance.

An automatic step control allows the back gauge finger to move automatically in a raised position and with maximum speed to the programmed position.

The back gauge also moves in parallel with the press beam to reduce cycle time and increase productivity.

Additionally, press beam travel and adjustment for crowning now happen simultaneously and the Bendguard safety system works uninterrupted in box mode.

The box height is pre-programmed and the press beam is therefore able to get into position at speed.

Trumpf said the software also provides operation data recording for production control, maintenance planning and cost analysis.


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.
