Generating high-quality edges

The Trumpf edge trimmer TruTool TKA 1500 reliably generates metallic blank edges that can be repeated accurately without any rework and, according to the manufacturer, is now even better than before.

Trumpf has developed several models of the large electric hand tool. Equipped with a powerful 2,600W motor and an adapted gearbox, it is very quiet to run and offers users two positive benefits. Firstly, they can work longer without fatigue and secondly always generate a reliable and high-quality chamfer.

Another highlight of the new TKA 1500 is the stainless steel guide fence that is particularly beneficial when processing straight sheet metal and outer contours. The guide fence makes it easier to run into the sheet metal and control the processing direction. It also provides practical chip protection thus increasing occupational safety. This practical standard accessory is assembled in seconds without any tools. It is also helpful that the shape, size and positioning of the handle can be adjusted ergonomically further supporting the safe and precise control of the machine.

As some customers often require an angle of 37.5°, for example when processing tubes, in addition to the most important angular positions of 30°, 45° and 60°, Trumpf has added this optional variant to its existing range of multi-edge cutter mounts.

The bevel length can still be adjusted without tools, although it is now easier as the new design of the machine provides an unrestricted view of the dial ring. Roundings with a radius of 2, 3, or 4mm can still be generated in addition to chamfers.

The new edge trimmer can consequently be used for a variety of applications. Suitable for deburring, rounding, or chamfering end edges, it is designed for preparing the processing of powder and paint coatings, as well as welded seams.

Trumpf has also improved the durability of the consumable materials. This is down to design improvements, which have reduced vibrations and ensure that an optimum feed rate is achieved. This reduces the amount of wear and increases durability.

The 230V version of the TKA 1500 is still high performing when it comes to productivity. It can be used to mill bevel lengths of up to 11mm in one operation. To process a maximum bevel length of 15mm it only requires two operations, while other power tools of this type, that are available on the market, require at least three.
