The first TruBend Center 5030 was sent to Oberderdingen in 2014. The total package was just right for Bickel Blechtechnik after TRUMPF took over Codatto. Jürgen Bickel says, "The flexibility of the machines from Lonigo in Italy has impressed us for a long time. Since TRUMPF has taken over the products and the technology, we are now sure of the service support that we need." But of course in the first place, the TruBend Center 5030 convinces all on its own with its unique machine concept. It has an additional height axis on the part manipulator which makes it extremely flexible: the part manipulator can secure the workpieces in different positions. It can be used to manufacture components with negative bends and even very narrow profiles without any problems at all. Even with standard tools, the TruBend Center facilitates a great variety of formats and forms: minimum flange lengths, high nesting, small profiles, components with formed sections, recesses and the most varied of radii are possible. Good solutions have also been found for any problems with processing of perforated sheets. Suction cups which can be positioned flexibly or optional magnet holders secure the sheets so that they cannot slip.
