TRUMPF will be presenting a new compact entry-level machine at this year’s EuroBLECH. The TruPunch 1000 can be expanded into an equally space-saving TruMatic 1000 fiber punch laser machine, allowing sheet metal processors to upgrade their machine to keep pace with their growing business. With its expandable functionality, the TruPunch 1000 provides the perfect entry point into the world of professional punching. It can handle sheets up to 6.4 millimeters thick at rates of up to 600 strokes a minute, yet is remarkably compact. With a footprint of just 6.5 x 4.9 meters, the TruPunch 1000 stand-alone machine is around 15 percent smaller than its predecessor. As their business evolves, sheet metal processors sometimes yearn for the greater variety of parts that can be manufactured by a combination system – and with the TruPunch 1000 there’s no need to buy a second machine. Thanks to its novel modular design, the TruPunch1000 can be retrofitted with a laser cutting system, a laser evacuation unit and a beam guard system. A 3 kilowatt TruDisk solid-state laser can be connected up to convert the TruPunch 1000 punching machine into a punch laser machine. This configuration precisely matches the other recent addition to the product range of TRUMPF: the TruMatic 1000 fiber. This is the first time that TRUMPF has offered a combination machine in the entry-level segment, a move that makes it easier for customers to make the switch from purely 2D laser processing to punch laser technology. Customers who already have a TruDisk solid-state laser can also use this to operate the TruMatic 1000 fiber via the TRUMPF laser network. The price of the new machine is undoubtedly appealing, and – with the TruMatic 1000 fiber’s specifications matching those of the previous TruMatic 3000 fiber model – customers don’t need to sacrifice anything in the way of performance.
