Allow a vision to come to life with tubes and profiles in vehicle frames, in furniture and lamps, as well as in mechanical and plant engineering, for example. A fully automated tube processing chain helps you to tackle any skills shortages, reduce your high costs, and develop new business opportunities. TRUMPF will provide everything you need to achieve this. The full package. When will you invest in limitless options from a single source?

Your challenges in the tube processing sector

What does your perfect tube processing chain look like?

Increased security thanks to seamless support of the entire process chain 

The tube processing chain consists of storing, processing, and welding. It can be automated precisely based on your requirements. A fully automated process chain comprises up to 7 steps: storing, loading, laser tube cutting, unloading and sorting, tube bending, 3D laser cutting, and welding. Our software and service solutions simplify the process. Of course, you can also only partially automate the process steps. It is up to you – design your perfect process chain with us.  

Overview of the process steps

1. Storing

The right store solution for your raw material and more storage space. The STOPA store and our Oseon production control will help you to structure your store and save on search times.
