TRUMPF has recently declared that it is expanding its panel bending portfolio to include fully automatic machines – the TruBend Center 7030. The machine turns the parts automatically, freeing up the operator and increasing the productivity of the bending process. The usual benefits of TRUMPF panel bending are retained: short side lengths, small profiles, and parts with formed sections, recesses, diverse radii or multiple negative bends – the machine reliably bends them all with precision. The laser-based ACB angle measurement system enables operators to work with greater precision and, in conjunction with TRUMPF TecZone Fold (the fastest offline programming tool on the market), more efficiently than ever.
Using the new rotary part manipulator, the TruBend Center 7030 can bend parts fully automatically. The manipulator secures the sheet and rotates it as needed into the required position. Here, axis speeds of 3,000 millimeters per second make it possible to achieve significantly increased productivity compared to the semi-automatic TruBend Center 5030 panel bender.
With its TruBend Center 7030, TRUMPF offers a fully automatic panel bending machine with an additional vertical axis for the 2-axis part manipulator. The TruBend Center 7030 is designed to allow for a wide range of shapes and formats, including sheets of aluminum up to 4 millimeters thick, mild steel up to 3 millimeters thick, or stainless steel up to 2.2 millimeters thick.
