TRUMPF stand at Blechexpo will showcase new automation solutions developed in collaboration with its partners // Products include a robotic bending system from Starmatik // This solution reduces cycle time by up to 50 percent 

Ditzingen, Germany, November 7, 2023 – High-tech company TRUMPF is increasingly incorporating solutions from partners into the strategy for its Machine Tools division. “Our customers have a diverse range of requirements, especially when it comes to automation and material handling. We work with strong partners who give us the expertise we need to deliver the best solution for each individual customer. The companies we choose are among the market leaders in their respective disciplines,” says Marcella Montelatici, Managing Director for Sales and Services at TRUMPF Machine Tools.

At Blechexpo, TRUMPF will be showcasing a new solution it developed for the systems supplier Kuipers in collaboration with automation specialist Starmatik. The solution features two robots from Starmatik which work simultaneously to load and unload the highly productive TruBend Center 7020 panel-bending machine from TRUMPF. This reduces the cycle time for loading by up to 50 percent. The machine itself includes new high-speed functionalities that can boost productivity by up to 30 percent. Equipped with this automation solution from Starmatik, the TruBend Center 7020 is one of the world’s fastest solutions for automated bending, offering efficient results for both volume production and prototypes. The Italian company Starmatik specializes in robotic automation systems for machines in the sheet-metal industry. The company has been working with TRUMPF in the field of automated bending cells since September 2021.
