Trumpf

Trumpf will showcase its Highspeed Eco cutting process. The newly designed nozzle boosts the feed rate by up to 100 per cent for solid-state laser machines that employ fusion cutting with nitrogen. In addition, laser power does not need to be increased.

Both the feed rate and piercing process are now faster. This new cutting process also allows for nearly a twofold increase in sheet throughput compared to standard cutting.

Furthermore, less cutting gas is used. The process relies on a nozzle fitted with a sleeve that forces the gas directly into the kerf, ensuring that little or no gas flows off to the side. The process requires 70 per cent less nitrogen on average.

Highspeed Eco can now be used on machines in the TruLaser Series 5000.
