TRUMPF purchases shares in a specialist for position-tracking sensors

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.

TRUMPF at EMO: Clever integration of 3D printing

This year, visitors to EMO will have access to a whole separate area devoted to additive manufacturing techniques. Here, TRUMPF will be showcasing its expertise in Laser Metal Fusion (LMF) and Laser Metal Deposition (LMD). The company will be placing its focus not only on machine solutions, but also on informing visitors about the possibilities afforded by additive technologies.

TRUMPF develops technology for high-brilliance direct diode lasers

The laser and laser system manufacturer TRUMPF recently unveiled its TruDiode 4001.5 technology demonstrator at LASER World of PHOTONICS in Munich. Based on a new, patented technology known as Dense Wavelength Multiplexing (DWM), the 4 kW direct diode laser offers a brilliant beam quality of 5 mm•mrad, enabling it to be connected to a laser light cable with a core diameter of 150 µm. By way of comparison, commercially available direct diode lasers in the high-power segment typically have beam qualities of between 30 and 50 mm•mrad and are used with a 600 µm laser light cable.

A drive for the future

Delta Drive – the new superweapon in TRUMPF’s arsenal for punch and punch-and-laser processing. The patented drive was developed with an eye to achieving several goals, such as facilitating the construction of smaller machines and opening up new methods of material handling. But how?

New opportunities six meters in length

Six meters: the length of a delivery van – or an adult alligator. Or a sheet that the TruLaser 3060 fiber can cut. This new oversize format machine from the TRUMPF 3000 series can process sheets as large as 6 x 2.5 meters. This means that users of the TruLaser 3060 fiber can acquire more orders for particularly large workpieces. Alternatively, the large working range enables sequential automated handling of four medium-format sheets – even if they differ in thicknesses and material.

Machines speak, AXOOM translates

“Everyone’s talking about AXOOM”. And not only that: the Karlsruhe-based company founded by the mechanical engineering company TRUMPF is even “getting machines to ‘talk’” – thanks to differentiated data evaluation.

TRUMPF presents the future of laser technology in Munich

The high technology company TRUMPF will be presenting tomorrow’s laser technology at the LASER – World of Photonics trade fair in Munich from June 26 to 29, 2017. Innovative beam guidance concepts revolutionize micromachining with ultrashort pulse lasers – New diode laser technology drastically cuts power consumption – High-energy laser amplifiers make electron movements at microscopic level visible.

Twice the cutting speed

Higher cutting speed = higher laser power. This formula has been more than just a rule of thumb. But TRUMPF engineers have now severed the correlation between speed and kilowatts. The fruit of their labor? The Highspeed and Highspeed Eco cutting processes.
