The new TruLaser 5030 fiber introduces several significant new features for higher productivity to go along with the robust 10 kilowatt TruDisk laser. TRUMPF’s new Active Speed Control feature automatically adapts the cutting speed based on real-time monitoring of the cut. The system looks straight through the nozzle directly at the cutting zone, checking the quality of the cut and autonomously controlling the feed rate to ensure a quality cut. This feature maintains the optimum feed rate and quality even in cases where the thickness of the material varies within a single sheet, or where the top of the sheet is contaminated with rust or paint, effectively preventing interruptions in the cutting process.
The addition of Smart Nozzle Automation with QuickSwap improves productivity even further. The 21-station nozzle changer not only automatically changes nozzles, but also inspects and cleans them, ensuring maximum cut quality and uptime. As an added benefit, the QuickSwap feature allows nozzles to be accessed while the machine is in operation, enabling nozzle replenishment without productivity loss.
