Standard product enhancements are machine options which can be easily integrated into your TRUMPF product.
Would you like to implement new applications on existing TRUMPF machines, systems, or lasers? Functional upgrades enable you to implement new customer requirements, work more profitably, or increase your added value in a targeted manner.
With product enhancements, you can also react to market changes quickly and with flexibility.
Specifically count on product enhancements to lower your costs and increase your profit.
Reduce non-productive times and become more productive – for example through automation.
Improve your process results by retrofitting innovative sensor systems.
Standard functional upgrades
Simply expand the scope of functions: You can also subsequently integrate standard product enhancements into your TRUMPF product without a lot of work. All of the possible functions are individually defined and perfectly coordinated to your machine. You make your selection from a modular system and can always rely on perfect operation.
Constant temperature for laser cutting and good cutting results even in thick steel. The CoolLine function sprays water coaxially onto the processing point through a special nozzle. Heat is drawn away from the sheet through the vaporization energy of the water. Cooling is thereby achieved and the temperature remains almost constant during the cutting process. With this function, you can nest parts more closely, resulting in less scrap and more profit.
The most varied reasons can cause cutting slugs to remain in the finished part, causing problems in downstream operations. ObserveLine is an optical measuring procedure with which every contour can be checked for a complete cut. Compared to measurement with distance regulation, the optical measurement has the advantage that it is faster and more precise. Even smaller hole diameters and angled punching slugs can be detected.
Flexible outputs and intelligent beam management
Due to the modularity of the majority of solid-state laser devices, they can be equipped with additional outputs even after purchase. This increases your productive laser use as you can operate up to six different work stations one after the other or at the same time.
Automated machines quickly pay off as they speed up operation, process larger quantities in the same amount of time, and reliably produce around the clock. Benefit from these advantages through an automated solution coordinated to your TRUMPF products – from the machine interface to semi-automatic loading solutions to fully automatic processing cells.
Examples of automation components
Using the LiftMaster Compact, you can shorten the times for the loading and unloading of your TruLaser machine. Its extremely short cycle time of under 90 seconds is achieved by the parallel loading and unloading, amongst other things. Here, the LiftMaster Compact transports unprocessed sheets to the laser machine's pallet changer, and at the same time parts which have already been cut are picked up by a rake frame and placed on the upper side of the suction frame.
TRUMPF products enable you to incorporate automation systems even after purchase. Standard interfaces, common to the market, are used for this. As part of these product enhancements, you can also integrate your laser devices into a higher-level control system.
The TRUMPF LaserNetwork increases the flexibility of your production facility. One laser device can be used for up to six work stations, providing the ability to use it for different applications. Parallel operations and quick changes between work stations, are also possible.
No matter what future challenge you face in your everyday production, you can remain optimally equipped through highly intelligent process sensor systems.
Examples of sensor systems
Before, during, and after welding, SeamLine Pro continuously gathers data for completely reproducible results. The comprehensive process sensor system monitors the entire welding process and at the same time records the seam point, the focal spot, and the weld seam. A particular advantage: SeamLine Pro automatically adjusts the focal point at any time. Following welding, the sensor system checks the seam height and width, as well as edge offset.
VisionLine performs component detection and ensures that the welding and cutting process is always executed at the right part of the component. You can rely on increased process reliability, simple operation, and systematic traceability of produced components.
The product enhancement CalibrationLine checks whether the focal position and laser power on the workpiece actually match the laser control system specifications, at regular, individually definable intervals. If necessary, CalibrationLine corrects the measured values, thereby bringing the program and reality back in line for perfect welding results.
