The particularly powerful short-pulse lasers of the TruMicro series 7000 can ablate layers quickly and across large surfaces, drill or cut with high throughput. With pulse energies of up to 100 mJ, they can achieve tremendous decoating rates with an excellent level of efficiency. You can vary the pulse repetition rate of the laser while maintaining an even pulse duration, optimising your machining processes. Large surfaces can be ablated particularly efficiently through the use of scanners.
Specialist for large surfaces
The high-performance short-pulse lasers from the TruMicro Series 7000 are based on disk laser technology and combine short pulses with high pulse energies, even with high frequencies. The lasers are therefore best-suited to large-scale and quick cleaning, ablation, or structuring with maximum throughput. With the flexible beam guidance, you can integrate the laser effortlessly into your manufacturing system.
Decoating sensitive copper hairpins on electric motors
The sensitive copper of electric motor hairpins is protected against oxidation and damage by a layer paint. To prepare the pins for welding, the layer of paint is selectively removed using a short-pulse laser without damaging the underlying copper. The results of the process are more precise and faster than those of mechanical stripping processes. The hairpins are then precisely welded for maximum conductivity.
Plastic-metal hybrid connection
Automobile manufacturers are increasingly turning to lightweight design in order to reduce the consumption and CO2 emissions of their vehicles. Hybrid metal-plastic connections are playing an increasingly important role here, since they combine the high strength and rigidity of metals with the low weight and great design freedom of plastic, for example. The high-performance nanosecond lasers of the TruMicro Series combine metal and plastic perfectly and without any additional materials, such as screws, rivets or adhesives.
Edge deletion of thin-film solar modules
In order to protect thin-film solar modules against corrosion and long-term short circuits, the layer system at the edge of the module is removed and then laminated. In this application, the laser penetrates the glass and splits off the layer system from the carrier material, without causing any cracks or fusing on the glass. In comparison to conventional sandblasting, there are no costs for the blasting medium or its supply. Furthermore, the excellent process properties ensure extremely high decoating rates.
Welding preparation of AlSi-coated steel sheets
The nanosecond lasers of the TruMicro Series 7000 are ideal for the efficient ablation of aluminium-silicon coats – without changing the basic material. In the automotive industry in particular, steels are coated with aluminium-silicon (AlSi) as an anti-corrosion agent. For perfect welding results, this coating must be removed in the welding seam area.
Cleaning and paint removal with short-pulse laser
The short-pulse laser enables paints, residual adhesives, or oxide films to be partially or fully removed from surfaces without damaging the basic material. The laser meets user requirements in terms of edge and ablation quality in particular, however the laser process also competes with conventional processes when it comes to cost efficiency.

TruControl is the quick and easy-to-use control for TRUMPF solid-state lasers. It regulates the laser power in real time in order to deliver reproducible results. TruControl manages, controls and visualises the interface configuration. You benefit from a uniform control architecture across all laser technologies. The lasers have interfaces to control intelligent TRUMPF optics, such as monitored CFO focusing optics or PFO scanner optics. You can program the processing optics easily using the laser control system. With the Teleservice from TRUMPF you will also receive remote support in seconds. This will allow you to avoid service calls or be as prepared as possible and increase the availability of the laser device.
With added options, you can work even more efficiently and with more process reliability with the high-performance nanosecond lasers of the TruMicro Series 7000.
There are many different options for the beam guidance that will enable you to plan flexibly with your laser. The plug & play optical laser cables can be easily connected to different work stations. Here, you choose the number of fibre outlets up to a total of four. The laser power is regulated for each outlet. This allows multiple work stations to operate simultaneously with split laser power or one after the other with full laser power. With the modular system, you can even retrofit this splitting functionality.
With the laser network, you can connect one or more lasers with up to four work stations in each case. In the process, your laser either splits its power to multiple stations, or it supplies them by turns with full power. This will enable you to combine different applications with one another.
Intelligent optics can be synchronised with your laser via a dedicated interface. This will allow you, for example, to use the CFO focusing optics or PFO scanner optics optimally for your purposes. You can program the processing optics easily using the laser control system. You do not need any additional PCs or control systems.
In the event of a fault, TRUMPF service experts will remotely access your laser via a secure remote connection. In many cases the fault can be remedied directly in this way, or the configuration of the laser can be modified in a way that permits you to continue manufacturing until the spare part arrives.
TRUMPF offers you all the components you need for beam guidance from the laser to the workpiece. This also applies for various focusing optics which have proven themselves to be precise and reliable over many years of industrial use. The optics can be easily integrated – both in stand-alone processing stations as well as in complete production lines. The modular structure enables the optics to be continually adapted to the laser types as well as the different processing situations.
Whether for welding, cutting, ablating, heating up or drilling: with robust fixed optics from TRUMPF you can attain high-quality process results!
