Along with its latest advancements in precision sheet metal fabrication, Trumpf highlights the TruLaser 8000 Coil Edition, a new laser blanking system that enables laser cutting and production “straight from the coil” to reduce costs, as well as carbon emissions, according to company officials.

Now available in North America, the TruLaser 8000 Coil Edition can process as much as 25 metric tons of coiled sheet metal from start to finish without human intervention. It is a viable option for companies interested in flexible, high-volume cutting solutions for sheet metal fabrication, including automotive suppliers and automakers, electrical cabinet manufacturers, elevator producers, and HVAC manufacturers.

The new laser blanking system helps companies enjoy the benefits of laser processing even in high-volume production environments, according to company officials.

“Volume manufacturers often use die presses for blanking operations and need to adjust or even replace tools whenever they make the slightest modification to their components, costing time and money,” says Salay Quaranta, Trumpf head of TruLaser 2D. “Many industries are seeing significant reductions in the scale of individual production runs, which make modifications even more costly and time-intensive. The laser facilitates modifications without a new tool, so it is much easier, faster, cheaper and more flexible.”
