TruBend Series 8000 (new generation)

New generation of the flexible large-format machine

Bending machines

TruBend Series 8000 (new generation)

Twice as powerful: Two machines bend in tandem with twice the press force and bending length

The next generation of the flexible large-format machine

The new generation of the TruBend Series 8000 bends your large-format components at high speed and with enormous efficiency. It comes with a variety of additional options and bending aids that make processing heavy, long and tall workpieces easier. The TruBend Series 8000 is a major advantage if you are bending large components in small quantities. This particularly applies to industries such as automotive, mechanical engineering and building technology. The bending machines also provide powerful and versatile support in job shops and contract manufacturers.

Large dimensions

880 mm installation height, 620 mm throat depth, high press force

High load capacity

The crowning and tool clamps have a load capacity of up to 6,000 kN per meter.

Logical control

Thanks to the robust multi-touch control, you can intuitively and correctly operate your bending machine.

Sustainable savings

With On-Demand Drive you save up to 26 percent on energy and perform whisper-quiet bending.

Precise angles

The angle measurement systems of ACB family ensure perfect angles - from the very first part.

Comfortable operation

Options such as support brackets and bending aids make working particularly ergonomic, safe and productive.

TruBend Series 8000
Precise angles - from the very first bend

Large format sheets are expensive - so the first bend must be correct. This is ensured by a team of proven angle measuring systems in the new TruBend Series 8000 with the ACB Laser, ACB Wireless, OCB (Operator Controlled Bending) and the software solution TCB (Thickness Controlled Bending).

Heavy-Duty [HD] Options

When bending heavy workpieces, various heavy-duty options are used to counteract the high forces.

TruBend Serie 8000 - Musterteil mit großer Schachtelhöhe

High box heights, easy removal

With an installation height of 880 millimeters, workpieces with large box heights can also be accommodated. Machine operators can easily bend and remove the workpieces. Another plus: Thanks to the 700 millimeter stroke, all TRUMPF standard tools are compatible without an adapter.

TruBend Serie 8000: langes, dünnes Musterteil

Bend large, thin components

Thanks to the large bending length of 4.40 meters, the TruBend Series 8000 bending machines are suitable for both large and heavy components as well as long, thinner components.

TruBend Serie 8000 Stationsbiegen

Save setup time

Station bending is practical. It allows you to utilize different upper and lower tools next to each other and process different components and bends without having to retool each time.

A series of functions make bending with the TruBend Series 8000 even safer, easier, more ergonomic, and more productive.

Precision and flexibility

ACB Wireless angle measuring system

Sensor disks integrated in the upper tool measure and correct every angle. The user-friendly ACB (Automatically Controlled Bending) Wireless automatically detects the position of the sensors, and the tool and control communicate wirelessly.

ACB laser angle measuring system

The ACB Laser is an optical system for angle measurement. Without contact, the laser projects a line onto the sheet, and a camera detects the angle. For this, two measuring units are automatically moved to the right position.


Up to 6 CNC-controlled backgauge axes position your workpieces precisely and securely. Optionally, these are also available in a particularly robust heavy-duty version.


The automatic crowning works precisely down to the last detail. At a distance of 250 millimeters, you can adjust the crowning curve exactly to your bending task if desired. The crowning has a load capacity of up to 6,000 kN/m.

TruBend Series 8000 with lower tool displacement
Lower tool displacement

One tool, two different bending processes: the lower tool displacement makes it possible. In concrete terms, this means: You increase your part variety and save setup time and investment costs. The lower tool displacement enables special applications, such as folding.

Energy efficiency

On-Demand Drive

The new TruBend Series 8000 operates sustainably with the optional On-Demand Drive. The revolution speed of the motor is automatically adjusted to the press beam movement. This way you save up to 26 percent on energy and can perform bending work quietly and comfortably.

Material handling

Support brackets

Handle heavy components easily: continuous height-adjustable support brackets make it possible. The robust support brackets each have a load capacity up to 300 kg and are available with different supports.

Bending aids

The bending aid with automatic height adjustment supports the bending personnel, especially when bending heavy or large parts. The heavy-duty version has a load capacity of up to 300 kilograms.

Operator ergonomics

TruBend Series 8000, MobileControl
MobileControl & MobileControl Pro

The handy MobileControl and MobileControl Pro operating units can be attached to a communications rail in the press beam along the entire bending length. This means you always have important functions under control, with no unnecessary trips required.

Additional monitor

An additional screen on the machine control simplifies operation. With its help, you can use the shop floor programming and produce at the same time, for example. Both are paperless processes, because the screen shows you all the relevant information.

Innovative control

The new control and navigation of the TruBend Series 8000 combines the advantages of modern multi-touch technology with industrial-grade robustness. This makes operating your bending machine as simple and intuitive as using a tablet or smartphone - and allows you to make almost every application a reality.

Perfect illumination with LEDs

Additional LEDs provide the operator area with optimal illumination. At the same time, they prevent heat generation that is bothersome for the personnel.

Tool Indicator with status display

Set up in no time: The LED bar in the upper tool clamp shows exactly where the tool stations should be set up. It also shows the current machine status and displays which tool station the next bend is to be carried out on. The illuminated signs save unnecessary trips to the control panel.

Bending line laser

The bending line lasers enable you to correctly align the parts to be bent. For this purpose, the system projects a laser line onto the sheet metal, which serves as a visual guide for the operator during bending. The added value: Less rejects, more productivity. The bending line laser also enables so-called bending on a scribed line, i.e. bending without the support of the backgauge system, thus resulting in more work area.

TruTops Boost

Program your bending machines intelligently using TruTops Boost, the all-in-one solution for 3D design. Numerous automated processes save you time-consuming routine processes. You also profit from a comprehensive ruleset with the bundled technical expertise of TRUMPF.

TecZone Bend

Program faster than ever before: With TecZone Bend you can combine bend programming in the office with shop floor programming at the TruBend bending machine. A program suggestion is automatically created in a few seconds based on 2D and 3D data – including NC program.


The software portfolio from TRUMPF optimizes your entire production process – from the customer query through to delivery of the finished part. TRUMPF combines the software intelligently with machines and services to create customized Industry 4.0 solutions for your Smart Factory.

Tool magazine

ToolShuttle, the practical tool magazine, stands directly next to your TruBend Series 8000 machine. During setup, tools are simply slid in and out of the machine, something that is particularly useful for heavy tools, saving time. The ToolShuttle has space for nearly 200 feet of tools and ensures everything is organized.

Standard tools

You can choose between more than 150 upper and lower tool types for your personal range. You can order tools individually or as a set.

ZN tools

During the processing of galvanized sheets, even after just a few bends, there may be zinc deposits on the die, resulting in cold welding. This causes imprints on the component and imprecision. This can be avoided with the TRUMPF LASERdur ZN bending tools. These combine a high level of surface hardness with excellent sliding properties, are corrosion resistant, and do not need to be cleaned.

Special tool

For specific requirements, TRUMPF will develop your own personal tool solutions. To guarantee the quality of your parts, we test the tools in advance with your specific material and create initial sample parts.
