TRUMPF bending machines stand for wide-ranging experience and pioneering innovation. The extensive portfolio includes machines for die bending and panel bending, as well as large-format bending tools and fully automated solutions. There is a wide range of options available for each bending technology to suit your specific application. With TruBend metal bending machines, you can precisely and cost-effectively produce simple or complex parts in any format. You always benefit from excellent part quality, increased flexibility, innovative tools, well-thought-out automation solutions, and intelligent software from a single source. We focus on operability and ergonomics to ensure the machine supports the operator in their work as much as possible.
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).
