Leading

The world's most powerful rechargeable battery technology with 30 years of battery expertise from Metabo. Full compatibility within the 12V class – also with CAS partner machines. Universal recharger, regardless of whether you use 12V, 18V or 36V CAS rechargeable batteries.

Battery technology

LiHD rechargeable battery technology means more power, service life and runtime. It charges reliably using process-controlled charging and discharging management. The cells are protected by minimal temperature build-up and permanent electronic single cell protection (ESCP), even when used over very long periods. High-quality materials and intelligent battery management combined with brushless motors and power head technology mean longer runtimes. The rechargeable battery pack's outer rubber coating also provides secure and non-slip stability as well as impact protection.

For any application

We offer 4 different cutters to suit particular applications: The CR cutter is ideal for processing stainless steel. The curve cutter cuts with excellent contouring. There are two different cutters for straight cuts: one cutter for processing thin sheets of up to 1 mm and one for use on sheet thicknesses of 1 mm – 1.6 mm. A quick-release locking bolt enables you to change the cutter quickly and easily without the need for tools.

Flat sheet

For cutting and trimming flat sheets. For radial and interior cutouts as well as notching.

Profiles

For cutting C-L-U profiles and longitudinal cuts in profile sheets.

Tubes

For cutting tubes.

Checker plate

For cutting checker plates. For radial and interior cutouts.

Corrugated sheet metal

Power-Head Technology

The light metal gear head's ingenious design is specially adapted to the low voltage battery technology. Decoupling the motor pinion from the motor minimizes energy loss and ensures even higher performance per battery charge.

Brushless motor

The powerful BL motor generates higher torques than conventional motors, requires less power and generates hardly any heat. This positively affects battery performance and means you get the maximum from every battery charge. A further advantage is the practically limitless service life of a BL motor due to the absence of carbon brushes and therefore no mechanical wear. This means almost wear-free and maintenance-free motors.

Small and handy

The 12V rechargeable battery tool has a lightweight design enabling fatigue-free working. The soft grip ensures safe and low-vibration working. All TRUMPF rechargeable battery tools are also available as stand-alone versions, i.e. without rechargeable batteries and recharger. If you already have CAS batteries available, you then have the option to save on resources and cut costs.

Optimal working speed

You can use the speed controller to adjust the working speed to suit the individual cutting task. This provides a variable cutting speed of up to 29.5 feet per minute. The speed controller is highly efficient for work with scribed lines or with a template. It is also well-suited to frequent processing of radii and stainless steel. The electronic overload protection offers yet another notable benefit.
