Modular Punch-Laser Combination MachineOctober 1, 2016
The new TruMatic 1000 fiber is the first entry-level punch- laser combination machine from Trumpf with a solid-state laser. The machine, on display at FABTECH with a 3-kW TruDisk laser, is revolutionary in its modular design, offering users the ability to add to it as business grows. The machine’s Delta Drive moves the electric punching head and the laser along the Y axis while the sheet moves in the other direction. This feature not only increases machine dynamics, productivity and process stability, it also enables a significantly compact footprint and the ability to connect with innovative material-handling options, including the SheetMaster Compact, to further increase production.
The machine’s protective housing, a requirement for safe laser processing, is integrated into the system. It automatically moves out of the way when the machine is punching to give operators maximum visibility and accessibility.www.us.trumpf.com
