With its expandable functionality, the TruPunch 1000 by Trumpf provides the perfect entry point into the world of professional punching. It can handle sheets up to 6.4mm thick at rates of up to 600 strokes a minute, yet is remarkably compact. With a footprint of just 6.5 x 4.9 metres, the TruPunch 1000 stand-alone machine is around 15 percent smaller than its predecessor.
It’s an excellent catalyst to aid an almost impossible smooth transition into the metalworking industry. An important development, considering how metalworking machinery a few years back can be a load of work in itself before an operator’s truly able to learn how certain ‘cogs’ fit in the workshop.
Despite being loosely labelled as an entry-level unit, The Trumpf TruPunch 1000 can gradually be expanded into a fully-fledged combination machine. Which makes it perfect for the long-term plans of a motivated and growing workshop. The result of this evolution is the TruMatic 1000 fibre, a laser machine equipped with a whole host of innovative features that punches holes, bends flanges and forms threads.
Both the TruPunch 1000 and the TruMatic 1000 fibre can automatically sort finished parts measuring up to 180mm × 180mm. While all processed parts will be sent down a chute into a sorting unit which moves in a linear direction. From there they can be sorted into a series of boxes (up to 4 different 400mm × 300mm boxes). The boxes are positioned below the machine, which provides for easy removal by the operator.
With the revolutionary TruPunch 1000, many investors will now have a perfect machine to kick-off their venture in the metalworking industry. In addition, the machine has the ability to be developed into a more advanced sheet metal fabricator in order to meet the rising demand of the workshop later on.
Thanks to its novel modular design, the TruPunch 1000 can also be retrofitted with a laser cutting system, a laser evacuation unit and a beam guard system.
