TRUMPF bending machines represent a wealth of experience and pioneering innovation. The extensive portfolio includes machines for die and panel bending technologies as well as large format bending machines and fully automated solutions. There is a wide range of options available for each bending technology to suit your specific application. Use TruBend machines to produce simple and complex parts in any format precisely and cost-effectively. You always benefit from high-quality parts, increased flexibility, innovative tools, sophisticated automation solutions and intelligent software all from a single source. We focus on operability and ergonomics to ensure the machine supports operators in their work.
In die bending or edge bending processes, the sheet metal is bent through a controlled downward movement of the press beam. The flat sheet is pressed by an upper tool into a V-shaped lower tool (die) and reshaped in a straight line. The backgauges ensure that the workpiece is positioned accurately.
Panel bending is ideally suited to complex bending applications with radius bends, short sides, or narrow profiles. TRUMPF panel benders contain a bending frame comprised of a C profile onto which the lower and upper bending tool are mounted. When the sheet metal is bent, the C profile moves up or down and performs a small elliptical movement (the swivel).
