TRUMPF has strengthened its portfolio of technologies for connected production. The machine tool company bought 60 percent of the shares in BeSpoon SAS on July 1, 2017. This company – based in Le Bourget-du-Lac, France – makes sensors, system components and software for position-tracking processes. BeSpoon products make it possible to locate objects in rooms and production facilities with centimeter accuracy and in real time. In addition, BeSpoon is one of just a few companies specializing in these products – key elements in digitalized production processes that are mastering the complex production environment of sheet metal production in a unique way.
