TruLaser Robot 5020 Basic Edition

Trumpf has introduced the TruLaser Robot 5020 Basic Edition with TruDiode laser in order to reduce the initial outlay of adopting laser technology into a welding process. The new product offers possible outlay reductions of up 20 per cent, and up to 50 per cent where a laser network is used.

The entry level system TruLaser Robot 5020 Basic Edition from Trumpf has a footprint of 30 square metres and includes everything a manufacturer needs to perform automated deep penetration and heat conduction welding in mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium up to 4mm thick.  The rotate and tilt positioner further boosts productivity.
