Solid-state laser meets XXL tube processing


The TruLaser Tube 7000 fiber can cut tubes and profiles with diameters of up to 254 millimeters and materials as thick as 10 millimeters. In addition, this machine executes high-quality bevel cuts up to 45 degrees. Its solid-state laser and RapidCut functionality allow it to cut at high speeds. At the heart of the machine is a four-kilowatt TruDisk 4001, a high-power disk laser manufactured by Trumpf itself. The beam source is robust and reaches the high cutting speeds typical of solid-state lasers. Moreover, the RapidCut function further increases productivity. By superimposing the movements of the tube axis and cutting head, Trumpf design engineers have achieved a fourfold increase in machine dynamics. As a result, the high feed rates of the solid-state laser are noticeable even in small contours. Meanwhile, PierceLine speeds up the piercing process. This option is just one function that Trumpf has transferred from sheet to tube processing. Laser safety is always important – particularly for machines with solid-state lasers. The beam guard for TruLaser Tube 7000 fiber is designed to give the operator unrestricted access to the loading and unloading side of the machine. With LoadMaster Tube, the TruLaser Tube 7000 fiber system is capable of fully automated operation. The TruLaser Tube 7000 fiber also has the Central Link interface, which can be used to gather and evaluate machine data. The machine is in this way well prepared for the connected future.
