Bending tools for every requirement

Standard bending tools

Standard tools

You can order all TRUMPF bending tools as a set or individually. With more than 150 different upper and lower tool versions in stock, numerous part geometries are possible.  The Data Matrix Code enables simple scanning and therefore makes it possible to automatically load the tools into the control.

Bending tools with a lightweight design

Lightweight tools

Improved set-up: The lightweight bending tools from TRUMPF are up to 35% lighter. All commonly used upper tools are also available in a lightweight design.

Sensor bending tools

Sensor tools

TRUMPF sensor tools operate according to the proven ACB measuring principle. Measurements are carried out directly in the process zone by sensor discs which are integrated in the tool shape.  Additionally, adapters are available in the case of U bends with long sides – even for ACB sensor tools.

Bending tool, LASERdur ZN coating

LASERdur ZN and LASERdur AL coating

Our specially coated bending tools mean that unwanted adhesions of aluminum or zinc caused by sheet abrasion, and the resulting marks  and inaccuracies, are a thing of the past. With LASERdur AL and LASERdur ZN, you benefit from high-quality coatings that combine the high surface hardness of your tools with excellent sliding properties. Additional advantage: The coated tools are corrosion-resistant and do not need to be cleaned.


Bending with RollBend

The RollBend tool enables you to create low-mark, short flange lengths, as well as moldings and holes, close to the bending line, without causing deformation. It can be combined with standard dies. Thanks to the new RollBend with its plastic jaws,  you can now bend without leaving any marks.

TruBend Series 8000 with ToolShuttle

Tool magazine

The ToolMaster sets up your bending machines automatically. This is extremely advantageous, especially when it comes to small lot sizes – work is faster and more ergonomic with the ToolMaster. It has enough space for 85 m of tools on average – and, depending on the tool, even more. You can also load it while the machine is bending.
Larger tools are possible for large parts – which is why we offer you the ToolShuttle especially for our TruBend Series 8000. This is a tool magazine that the operator can use to move the tools from the changer into the machine. There is space here for up to 60 m of tools.

Less set up, more bending

The TecZone Bend programming software creates the programs for your bending parts. The Tool Setup Optimizer option checks which parts you need the same tools for and how the tool stations can be best combined. This enables you to bend the maximum number of parts with only one tool setup.

Special tools

Take advantage of TRUMPF's expertise and have special tools produced, specifically to your requirements. TRUMPF provides you with consultation, develops, constructs, and tests your customized special tools.

Special tool, complete hinge tool

Complete hinge tool

The tool is designed for hinges with fixed dimensions (sheet thickness, hinge diameter, and hinge extent) and is used without a backgauge as the gauge is integrated in the tool. This enables door hinges, for example, to be produced quickly.

Special tool, tool with pivoting window

Pivoting window tool

The tool with a pivoting window is used to bend closed profiles or U parts. The use of a pivoting adapter makes it possible/easier to remove products, saving you time and money.



During the bending process, the sheet is subject to an even pressure by the support areas of the side plates. There is almost no relative movement between the tool and the workpiece.

Special tool, louver tool for closed tool contours

Louver tool for closed tool contours

Louvers can be produced by forming the sheet on the die bending machine. Louvers are usually used as ventilation slots on housings.

Special tool, shape tool for radius bends

Forming tool for radius bends (circular part)

A circular part is created by means of a form lock between the upper and lower tools. The bend radius is determined by the tool radius (depending on the sheet thickness, material type, etc.). Circular parts can be used as handrails for stairs, for example.

Special tool, tool for wide U part

Tool for wide U part

This tool can be used to produce very tall U profiles in a single step. To prevent the product sticking in the die, an ejector and gas springs push the profile out of the lower tool.

Special tool, large rotating jaw tool

Large rotating jaw tool

This tool can be used to create very high U parts. The rotating jaws compensate for the springback in the material caused by overbending. Pre-bending and folding is no longer necessary with this tool.

Special tool, offset tool for C parts

Gooseneck tool for C part

C parts are generally created using gooseneck tools. The height and throat depth of these can be individually adapted.

Bending film

TRUMPF bending foil

The bending foil is placed over the lower tool and therefore prevents imprints that could occur on the workpiece due to friction with metal.

Special tool, die with R3 catchment radii

Die with R3 catchment radii

These dies have significantly larger working radii. They are used to ensure that the foil does not tear and that there are no visible abrasion marks on the material surface when foil-coated sheets are bent.
