With the TRUMATIC 20, TRUMPF presents the first sheet metal processing machine with numerical continuous path control. For the first time, it enables a fully automated work process, even including the tool change. All information required to process the workpiece is stored on punched tape. The TRUMATIC 20 causes a sensation at the 11th European Machine Tool Exhibition in Paris in 1968.

TRUMPF relocates to Ditzingen

The production conditions and transport infrastructure in Stuttgart-Weilimdorf are no longer suitable for the company. Through the years, Berthold Leibinger and Hugo Schwarz acquire shares from the Trumpf couple and following their passing in 1977, become sole shareholders of TRUMPF.

There are 800 employees working for TRUMPF. The company generates a turnover of DM 73 million and by now has registered more than 100 patents. Virtually two thirds of production is exported to more than 100 countries.
