High axis speeds and acceleration rates combined with innovative operating aids lead to unparalleled productivity with the TruBend Series 5000. These highly productive, universal machines from TRUMPF come equipped with an On-Demand Servo Drive with 4-cylinder drive technology. The Servo Drive is highly dynamic, extremely quiet in operation, and delivers significantly more productivity compared to a conventional drive. It is also eco-friendly as it consumes energy only during the bending process.
Measuring systems for precise angles
Since precise angles are the most crucial part of bending quality, TRUMPF offers an assortment of smart features for maximum precision. The TruBend Series 5000 features two innovative angle measuring systems. Automatically Controlled Bending (ACB) takes measurements through sensors integrated into the upper tool, while the ACB Laser system measures the bending angle through a contactless optical process, and is therefore compatible with any tooling. These measuring systems complement one another perfectly. When bending short sides, reflective surfaces, or when multi-point measurement is required, the established ACB is the obvious solution. The ACB Laser system is especially useful when processing acute and open angles, as well as thick sheet metal. This system projects a laser line onto the sheet and measures the angle with a camera for maximum precision.
The entire bending process is facilitated by the Touchpoint TruBend control concept. This intuitive interface features exceptionally realistic 3D visualization and a multi-touch screen which responds to the operators touch even when work gloves are worn. Collision monitoring is also available with the 3D visualization system. The MobileControl Pro can be positioned conveniently along the press beam so the operator can complete the bending process without having to revisit the control. A 3.2‑inch color display enables them to input all the directions they might need for the bending process while standing directly at the machine, including instructions to switch to the next/previous bending step or to correct the angle and axis positions.
Productive bending thanks to automatic tool changes
At FABTECH the TruBend 5170 will be equipped with the newest generation ToolMaster for automatic tool changes in seconds. The new generation continues to minimize changeover time, increase productivity and lower cost per part. It also has an increased storage capacity of 213 feet and can automatically load standard, ACB Wireless, and custom tooling.
