The Tech Seminar held by maintecx and TRUMPF from April 19th to 21st proved to be quite successful!

Maintecx brought over 40 customers from the Midwest to TRUMPF’s headquarter in Farmington, CT to look at “what’s new in Blue”.

At the newly designed TruBend Demo Center of TRUMPF, the customers were able to witness demo runs of the TruBend Cell Series 5000 and 7000. The all new designed and first time demonstrated TruBend 5000 series is now equipped with a new On-Demand Servo Drive with 4-cylinder drive technology – among other features – leading to significantly more productivity.

TRUMPF’s new panel bender demonstrated the bending of parts with geometries not possible with a traditional panel bender. The brand new TruBend Center Series 5000 – integrated with automation – was originally introduced and well received in November 2015 at the Fabtech show in Chicago.

Further highlights included the demos of TRUMPF’s TruTube Laser cutting machines of the series 5000 and 7000.

Quite some interest was gathered from TRUMPF’s compact TruLaser 2030 machine, powered by a 3kw or 4kw fiber laser. A variety of optional automation components can help to increase productivity. This product – with a very small footprint – was designed and produced only in the US.

During the lectures, customers learned more about Industry 4.0 also known as “The Internet of Things” with the “Smart Factory” supported by TruConnect.

It is widely realized that a company’s production chain does not end within its building, but rather extends to various other institutions like suppliers and customers via communication through “the cloud”. TRUMPF’s commitment to industry 4.0 is reflected in the founding of AXOOM, a TRUMPF subsidiary that has the integration of all business platforms in one digital system as their core goal.

TRUMPF’s new machine software, TruTops Boost, is also an integral part of TruConnect in their efforts to streamline communication via different platforms.

It was a pleasure to show our customers all the new equipment and please contact us with any remaining questions.

Our Fabtech 2015 Report

America’s largest show for technology, equipment and knowlegde was another big success with 1,700 exhibitors and over 43,000 visitors marveling at the latest developments in the industry.

These were the high-lights presented at the TRUMPF booth at McCormick Place in Chicago:

TruLaser 2030 fiber with Automation:

The TruLaser 2030 features a fully integrated 4kW TruDisk laser for supreme cut quality in a 60 inch x 120 inch working range. The new flexible option for loading and unloading gives customers the choice to run production with the standard pallet changer or the fully automated LiftMaster Shuttle for complete lights-out production.

TruLaser 5030 Fiber:

With the revolutionary BrightLine fiber technology and an 8kW TruDisk laser, the TruLaser 5030 fiber is the most productive and universal laser cutting solution in the industry. It is capable of processing up to 1 inch mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum with impressive speed and quality. The new Smart Collision Prevention and the Drop&Cut options provide increased efficiency and reliability. With Drop&Cut, operators see a live image of the machine’s interior and can easily drag a new programmed contour to any desired location to easily utilize material remnants.

TruBend Center 5030

TRUMPF’s first panel bending machine is a perfect complement to the TruBend product line. With a bending length of 10 feet, this machine can produce positive and negative bends, as well as folds and circular bends with a variety of radii which significantly reduce set up times and tooling costs. Fabricators are able to process an extremely wide variety of parts that reach far beyond the traditional range of panel bending and can form complex components with great productivity and precision.

TruPunch 5000 with Sheetmaster 

The TruPunch 5000 with Sheetmaster was shown for the first time in North America with new features including retractable clamps, mobile control, and the new ToolMaster Linear for additional tooling capacity. The machine also features smart punch monitoring, a unique technology that enables the machine to automatically detect a broken punch.  It is available with a working range of up to 60 x 120 inches and can process material up to 0.312 inch thick. With its innovative On-Demand Drive, it is capable of punching at a rate of up to 27 strokes/sec.

TruTops Boost

TRUMPF adapted a new philosophy in its new, unique software design and programming of laser, punching and bending machines. Due to its process orientation, TruTops Boost is easy to navigate.

TruTops Boost allows you to work in two ways: with full automation using the HomeZone level or interactively using the TecZone level. You alone determine whether to use the Boost button in the HomeZone to let the software run automatically or whether to bring the full extent of your expertise to bear in the TecZone.

Two operating levels provide a better overview as well as easy and fast processing of orders. Designing and programming become highly efficient when combined with these intuitive operating elements and parallel working modes.

Our Fabtech Report

Fabtech 2014 took place at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from Nov. 11th-13th.
The very well attended Fabtech show with more than 1400 exhibitors presented lots of new and innovative products to over 27.000 visitors.
The highlights at the TRUMPF booth were three new fiber laser cutting machines:
The most impressive, top of the line TruLaser 5030 fiber with brightline and a 8Kw solid state laser allows cutting speeds and productivity gains never witnessed before.
Secondly, a newly released TruLaser 3030 with a 4Kw solid state laser, to fill in the gap between the existing 3Kw and 5Kw machines.
Last but not least, a newly developed TruLaser 2030 with a 4Kw solid state laser as the most economic solution to cut thinner gauge and reflective materials.
TRUMPF punching products also impressed with a new family member. The recently developed TruPunch 2000 with the SheetMaster Compact features a 50 inch x 100 inch working range and processes material up to 0.250 inch with lights-out capability.
A new TruBend 3100, as a very economical solution to enter the high precision bending world was introduced to the North American market as the first product of the new 3000 series product line.
To demonstrate state of the art fabricating including laser welding, sample parts were cut on the Trulaser 2030, bend on theTruBend 3100 and laser welded on the TruLaser Robot 5020 before finally laser marked either on the TruMark 5020 or the latest introduced TruMark 5010 Mobil Marker. Utilizing high precision equipment and high quality processing allows generating products without secondary operations.
Maintecx, your local sales and service representative in the upper Midwest would like to thank all the customers coming to the show and their interest in working with us on future projects.
