Blechexpo: TRUMPF makes it easier than ever to get started with fully automated bending

TruBend Cell 5000 Lean Edition offers up to eight hours of automated operation // The perfect choice for any company looking to enter the world of automated bending

TRUMPF is presenting a new automated bending cell for the mid-range price segment at this year’s Blechexpo trade show. The TruBend Cell 5000 Lean Edition can operate without human intervention for around eight hours, depending on the geometry of the parts being produced. With skilled workers in short supply, this is exactly the kind of solution fabricators need. “Automation is one of the biggest trends we’re seeing in bending going forward. For users on a limited budget, the TruBend Cell 5000 Lean Edition is an excellent way to get started with automated bending and make production more competitive. By introducing this new machine, TRUMPF is making sure it has a suitable solution for every customer segment,” says Simon Hiebl, who heads up product management for bending systems and premium solutions at TRUMPF. To create the new TruBend Cell 5000 Lean Edition, the TRUMPF engineers drew on tried-and-tested hardware and software solutions developed by the high-tech company, including its BendMaster bending robot and TruTops Boost programming software. These additions make the bending cell particularly reliable and productive, thereby helping to address the shortage of skilled workers.

Suitable for a broad range of parts

TRUMPF offers the TruBend Cell 5000 Lean Edition in two variants, each of which can be supplied either with or without the small-parts package. With the basic variant, fabricators can process parts ranging in size from A4 to a Euro-pallet format. By adding the small-parts package, they can also bend small parts of a similar size to a business card. “With this ability to process such a broad range of parts, fabricators can carry out a significant proportion of their jobs in an automated fashion on a single machine,” says Hiebl. The new machine is a great choice for manufacturing small to mid-sized parts, such as electric charge points, control cabinets and PC housings.

The bending cell is also impressively simple to program thanks to the intuitive interface of TRUMPF’s TruTops Boost software. Learning how to use the software is quick and easy, so workers can start using the machine more quickly. In addition, users can accommodate two different grippers inside the bending cell, which makes switching the machine from one part to another fast, flexible and automatic. TRUMPF will be launching both variants of this new solution at Blechexpo.
