The advantages of our punch laser machines
Punch laser processing is considered particularly lucrative – as the machines master two technologies at once: they combine the efficiency of punching and the flexibility of the laser. Furthermore, punch laser machines from TRUMPF, called TruMatic, provide particularly high-quality results and are as reliable as you want them to be.
1. Punching head
Punching in and of itself is a flexible technology, and the laser provides you with even more options. Punch laser machines from TRUMPF can laser cut, punch, form, tap, emboss, mark, engrave and deburr.

As a metal-processing company, you know that the highest level of quality is often mandatory. You will achieve it with TRUMPF lasers. You can process all desired contours in the most varied of sheet thicknesses and materials. The results are outstanding.

3. Material flow
Long waiting times are a thing of the past: your material flow becomes fluid with reliable automation processes.

Thanks to your TruMatic machine, you will produce extremely high-quality parts requiring almost no reworking or even no reworking at all. This applies to punch or laser burrs as well

1. Punching head – standard contours and forming with the punching head
Flexible and cost-effective
Minimise setup effort and maximise productivity: all punching heads at TRUMPF operate according to the mono punching head principle. This means that all punching tools can rotate by 360°. The benefits: all tools can be used in any angular position, they require significantly fewer punching tools than other designs.
Our tool system offers a large selection of standard tools and endless options for special tools. We manufacture all tools ourselves from first-class steels. Punch shears are free of charge. Standard tool cartridges are available for standard tool sizes 0, 1 and 2.
You can create slitting contours, separating cuts on forms or visible edges without nibbling marks flexibly and cost-effectively.
You can also form thanks to plastic deformation of the sheet, for example bending or forming threads. In addition, TRUMPF offers suitable solutions for deburring – all in one machine.
Minor setup effort
Set up quickly and easily and wait: tools can be set up in the tool cartridge beforehand parallel to production. This protects the machine and extends the tools' service life.
2. Laser – Contouring freedom and optimum results using the laser
The laser as a flexible tool
The laser cuts high-quality outer contours and delicate inner contours perfectly. You can cut very near to, or even on, forms which have already been created with the slim laser head of a TruMatic.
Through thick and thin with just one head: thanks to the single cutting head strategy, you can process all material types and thicknesses with your laser – without the need to change the cutting head. This is made possible by adapting the beam diameter in the beam guidance.
3. Material flow – logistical masterstroke
Loading and unloading
Make your combined punch laser machines even more efficient: the SheetMaster not only loads and unloads your machine automatically, but also sorts your parts reliably.
Parts are dropped directly into containers outside of the working area through part removal flaps on the punch laser side – if required, even into multiple containers. This is possible thanks to the SortMaster Box.
Automated and safe disposal of scrap skeletons and efficient scrap handling: the GripMaster, ShearMaster and the DisposeMaster will take care of these tasks. This means you have your sheet metal waste under control at all times.
You will work more productively with your punch laser machine thanks to the correct tool magazine: you will always have the suitable tool to hand with the fully automatic ToolMaster or ToolMaster Linear systems.
4. Quality – excellent part quality
Scratch-free punching and forming
You will punch and form without any scratches with the descending die and the active die. Nothing will get caught now when downward forming. As the active die facilitates an active forming stroke from below, you also increase your range of parts.
Sheet metal punching without deformation
Smooth out irregularities even during punching: the machine function "Integrated Flattening" and the corresponding tool effectively prevent accidental deformation in the sheet.
Excellent cutting quality
You will achieve cutting edges where you can see your own reflection, burr-free and with minimum roughness thanks to the CO2 laser.
5. Process reliability – production with process reliability
Safety throughout the shift
Detect possible punch breakage and inform the operator accordingly: Smart Punch Monitoring checks whether a hole was actually punched into the sheet – a handy tool to reduce rejects, particularly during night and weekend shifts.
Aligning the sheet
Smart Load supports you in the sheet alignment on the machine in the best possible way. A sensor in the clamps detects when the sheet has not been gripped correctly. If this is the case, the machine table, including sheet, moves. The SheetMaster picks up the sheet again by suction and readjusts it using pivot suction cups.
Smart Unload ensures removal of finished parts with process reliability: a sensor detects if a finished part does not fall through the part removal flap as expected during removal. The error can then be rectified quickly.
Perfect support for the operator: you can operate and monitor your machines easily and with flexibility with the MobileControl app from TRUMPF as the app transmits the interface of the standard control panel onto the touchscreen of your iPad. Alongside the static control panel, you therefore have another option for monitoring and controlling your machine. This means that the operator keeps an overview of the production process, even with work steps that are not directly in front of the control panel, for example, when setting up tools.
TruMatic: your introduction to new sectors
State-of-the-art solutions from TRUMPF are being used in countless industries for a wide variety of tasks and applications: there are hardly any metal or tube components which cannot be manufactured productively and to the highest quality standards using a machine from TRUMPF's portfolio. Thanks to their flexibility, TruMatic machines are your opportunity to access new sectors – the automotive industry, for example.
