Trumpf to open UK site to visitors in June

For three days during mid-June visitors to the TRUMPF 2017 Open House will see how TRUMPF continues to innovate to help UK manufacturers be competitive and successful. They will be introduced to what’s new in TRUMPF punching, laser and bending technologies and be invited to take part in a programme of seminars focussed on efficient and smart production.

The event will mark the UK launch of the TruMatic 1000 fiber, a new laser machine that comes with additional punching and forming functionality. Thanks to its extended capabilities, the machine is highly cost-effective and provides exceptional production flexibility. In combination with a very compact footprint, these characteristics make the TruMatic 1000 fiber an ideal asset for the UK’s subcontractors.

Introduced at last year’s EuroBLECH in Germany the TruMatic 1000 fiber machine has already attracted a lot of attention in the UK and the first model will be installed at a Bedfordshire fabricator in May.

TRUMPF bending competence is also highlighted at Open House. The company offers small to oversize format press brakes as well as a range of semi-automatic and automatic panel benders. These clever machines enable parts to be fabricated in any format, from the simplest to the most complex and are renowned for their flexibility, finished part quality and high cost-benefit ratio.
