Using positioning, you can easily establish a connection between the flat material and the tube. This allows you to weld quickly and assemble accurately due to an assignment coding system.
Be a cut above the rest. Process tubes with lasers
There is something magical about every new beginning. In the case of laser tube cutting, it is the high-precision tool – the laser. You can even cut complex contours, wall thicknesses up to 10 mm, or materials like mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum with a diameter of up to 254 mm effortlessly with the laser. In addition to a variety of materials and shapes, laser tube cutting also offers even more – you can produce increasingly small lot sizes quickly and cost-efficiently.

Technical advantage increased. Part costs decreased
You can save a hefty 49% in time and 31% in part costs on our example part with a bend connection by using laser tube cutting. At the same time, you can also make your processes and organization simpler. Compared to conventional sawing, drilling, and milling, you can also reduce downstream work steps such as deburring, welding, or assembly. In just one operation, you can cut complex contours, form threads, and cut tubes to length.
A comparison of laser tube cutting and conventional production
This is the approximate weight that a TruLaser Tube machine can handle at one time.
You could recreate the Eiffel Tower more than 16,000 times with this amount.
Be more cost-effective. Save a third in part costs compared with conventional tube processing.
Become a pioneer in thinking outside the box
Cutting tubes and profiles using lasers opens up completely new avenues in design which were previously impossible using conventional processes. Free your design spirit and excite your customers with amazing design variants.
Whether it's small villages or big cities, tubes are used everywhere. Designs made from tubes and profiles are ubiquitous
Tubes are a fixture of our everyday lives:
From robust frame constructions for buses and agricultural machinery, delicate designer furniture and lamps to complex systems made from tubes in mechanical engineering and system construction – you can find tube designs that have been processed using lasers everywhere. No wonder – because there are few tools that can be used with such flexibility and offer so much contour freedom. Innovative products made from laser-cut tubes are already being used successfully – in the furniture industry, construction industry, automotive industry, commercial vehicles and transport, mechanical engineering, system construction, the agricultural sector, the fitness industry, and air-conditioning and energy technology.
This is what our experts say
"Laser tube cutting provides new design options which enable tube processors to delight their customers. Innovative designs also ensure a great potential for savings."
"The laser tool replaces many conventional machining processes such as milling, sawing, or punching in tube processing. This increases productivity significantly and reduces part costs considerably. Due to the integration of additional process steps, such as thread cutting, this benefit is increased even further."
The origin of TruLaser Tube machines
The Swabian Jura in Germany is where everything comes together. It is a holiday region that is affectionately sometimes also called the "Blue Belt". TRUMPF's impressive vertical range of manufacturing is tangible here. This is because all components needed to build a laser tube cutting machine reach final assembly here. In this hustle and bustle, trucks deliver parts from surrounding sites, day in, day out. These parts are needed to be able to finally deliver the finished machine.
