Four approaches to more climate protection in your production

Efficient solutions for more climate protection in your production

Save energy electrically

The patented Delta Drive works electrically - and requires  significantly less energy than hydraulically driven punching and punch-laser machines.

More speed, less gas

BrightLine Speed increases the cutting speed in 3D laser cutting by up to 60 percent and cuts your cutting gas consumption in half thanks to X blast nozzles. This saves up to €20,000 per year compared to conventional laser cutting.

Want to learn about more solutions for making your production more sustainable?

Decide whether you want to save energy, material or operating resources - and we will show you which solutions can be used to achieve this.

Active Speed Control

The Active Speed Control feed control oversees the cutting process and independently regulates the feed rate. It achieves the optimum results, even if the sheet thickness or quality vary. More finished parts mean less rejects, saving you material in the process.

BrightLine Speed

This function accelerates 3D laser cutting by up to 60%, requiring 50% less cutting gas in the process thanks to the X blast nozzles. Saving you up to €20,000 as a result.


This function cools the material and ensures optimal cutting results, even with thick steel. The benefit for you: nest closer with less scrap skeleton.

Delta Drive

The patented drive works electrically and requires around 20% less energy than hydraulically driven punching and punch-laser machines.


User-friendly and cost-effective post-production and using up scrap skeleton with minimal effort – wondering how? A camera displays the live image of the remainder sheet on the control and the user positions the desired part using the touch function or with the click of a mouse.

Electric drives for bending machines

The new electric motors save up to 40% energy when bending compared to the previous drives.

Electrical heating designs

TRUMPF Hüttinger stocks a wide range of power supplies for your electrical heating design – including DC and microwave generators. This means that processes reliant on fossil fuels can be transformed to operate with an electrical or electromagnetic power supply.

Energy Cockpit

The Energy Cockpit in Smart View (production module) displays exactly how much energy your laser needs over time, allowing you to identify areas for improvement at a glance.

Forming tap breakage control

Is the right tapping tool fitted? This function uses the available sensor system to check. It also detects thread breakage on the machine.

Highspeed Eco

The laser cutting process saves up to 70% in cutting gas for fusion cutting compared to cutting without Highspeed Eco. Reducing your carbon emissions and energy requirements in turn.

TruDisk 6001
Laser start-stop system

TRUMPF high-performance solid-state lasers require roughly 60% less energy in optimised standby mode. The smart control automatically switches the laser to various energy-saving states during production breaks and re-activates it when required.


Nest parts more closely to reduce your material consumption and costs thanks to nanojoints. Skeleton-free nesting is possible, depending on the part shape - so you get 12% more out of the sheet in many applications. 

Sheet size recognition

Is the correct sheet size on the machine? The plausibility check uses the available sensor system to check. If an incorrect sheet size is detected, processing is stopped.

Smart Punch Monitoring

The function detects and reports when punches are broken at an early stage, avoiding rejects. This offers a major advantage, particular in terms of additional shifts and weekend operation.

TruMark 6030 with supply unit
Stand-by mode

Standby-mode for TRUMPF marker lasers reduces energy consumption by around 50%. Good to know: the laser system is ready to use again right away as soon as a new marking order is received.  

Stroke calibration

The integrated measurement system ensures the defined stripper positions are approached safely. It also informs the operating personnel if the measured sheet thickness differs from the expected thickness.

Utilise the potential of existing machines

You have a laser system or a machine tool from TRUMPF. Do you know what it's capable of and utilise all of these features? Many different adjustments can be made in order to save raw materials, energy or consumables. These include, for example, nesting, part design, training, or technology selection.

Processing of spare parts with Xchange

In the event of an exchange, we will take back high-quality genuine parts with the Xchange label and prepare them for reuse. In this way, the refurbished parts find their way back into circulation. 

Nesting: Put as many parts as possible on the sheet

Saving sheet metal means saving CO2. Whether laser cutting or punching: Place your parts in such a way that the sheet metal is used to the maximum. The TruTops Boost programming system makes it easy. It takes into account both the process (cutting or punching) and the ejection of the parts.

Predictive Maintenance: A clean machine

Thanks to Condition Monitoring, the maintenance and servicing of your machines and beam sources are based on actual requirements. Specifically, this means: cooling water, oil or parts are only changed when it is really necessary. If a malfunction occurs, often nothing needs to be replaced, but simply readjusted. The bottom line is that properly maintained systems ensure a higher good part rate.

Production line: Laser cutting from the coil

With more efficient nesting on coils instead of sheets, the TruLaser 8000 Coil Edition allows you to save up to 1,700 tonnes of steel per year. This corresponds to approx. 4,000 tons of CO2 and 1.6 million euros in material costs.  

Training: Up-to-date on energy saving

We are consistently developing our machines and processes further. Stay ahead of the game with online updates for maximum performance. Regular training of your team helps to ensure that resources are saved in manufacturing. Training in parts optimisation or updates for operating personnel are just some of the training opportunities available.

Beading: Reinforce thinner sheets

Reduce your material consumption when punching by up to 50 percent - by reinforcing thin sheet metal with beads. The lightweight construction saves weight, which also makes it easier to transport the finished parts. All you need for this: A roller beading tool.

Technology selection: Punching saves electricity

Compared to laser cutting, punching is an energy-saving technology. The process itself uses less electricity; shorter production times for simple, repetitive contours also save energy. In general, you should not subject galvanised materials to laser cutting, since the corrosion protection evaporates with the galvanising. This is one reason to ensure that you select the optimal technology when programming. Our experts will be happy to provide you with comparative figures on power input.

Technology selection: Highspeed LMD for coating brake disks

The Euro 7 Emission Standard increases the requirements for brake disks.  With the patented technology, you increase your coating quality with laser deposition welding and significantly reduce the consumption of powder material.  

Part optimisation: Do more with less

Rethinking the design of components can save material. For example, brackets are often machined from solid material, although punching and forming tools produce the same effect in sheet metal. Sensor holder example: Attachment contours are created on the components by punching and forming. Milling, on the other hand, removes material, and the base plate is twice as thick as the comparable part.
