Trumpf showcases new press brake

Trumpf’s Bend TecDay 2024, held at the company’s Luton headquarters in February, proved a resounding success with an impressive number of visitors attending from both existing and potential customers.

The highlight of the event for visitors was to get up close with Trumpf’s new TruBend Series 1000 press brake. Designed as the ideal entry to Trumpf bending solutions, the new TruBend 1000 has simple and reliable operation at high levels of precision and speed.

The new machine set the theme for Bend TecDay 2024, delivering an easy-to-understand introduction to the TRUMPF world of bending and focusing on all the essentials that provide the ideal start to any company’s bending journey.

The TruBend Series 1000 has a sturdy system structure, high-quality components and intuitive programming system, reducing the skill level required for operation.

Bend TecDay 2024 included an overview of Trumpf’s TecZone Bend programming software. Visitors could discover how this advanced software automatically creates a program proposal based on 2D and 3D data in just seconds. TecZone Bend is available at no cost for 12 months.

Through live demonstrations, attendees could learn about machine attributes such as precision bending: the four-axis back-gauge positions the sheet metal to within 0.05 mm and enables users to bend complex parts with high levels of repeatability and speed (up to 400 mm/s). Another key feature is automatic, intelligent wedge crowning, with users benefiting from high angle accuracy along the entire bend length and the automatic calculation of angle correction.

Visitors to Bend TecDay 2024 could also see for themselves the machine’s large open height and stroke, its BendGuard optical protection system and the 19” touchscreen user interface fully loaded with TRUMPF bending data technology and network connectivity. Notably, the control’s photorealistic 3D visualisation aids both simulation and production, providing operators with step-by-step guidance from tool set-up to component completion.

Aside from the TruBend Series 1000, those attending Bend TecDay, were able to experience the broad spread of CNC bending machines on show at TRUMPF’s Luton showroom. Based on pioneering innovation, the company’s extensive portfolio includes machines for die bending and panel bending, as well as large-format bending tools and fully automated solutions.
