A further innovation: plasma cutting

As a further innovation, the company presents the TRUMATIC Plasmapress 300 plasma cutting machine for the first time at the International Machine Tool Show in Chicago. The Plasmapress combines punching, nibbling, and plasma cutting on a single machine. Nowadays, plasma cutting plays virtually no role at all as the power of lasers has increased sharply.
