With a working range of 5 ft x 10 ft, the TruMatic 1000 fiber combination machine from TRUMPF Inc. (Farmington, CT) is an economical, compact and automation-friendly punch-laser machine that is specifically designed to grow with a customer’s business. The punch and laser processes are combined by adding a 3 kW TruDisk solid-state laser and retrofitting a TruPunch 1000 machine with a laser cutting system, a laser evacuation unit and a beam guard system. Shops with an existing TruDisk solid-state laser also have the added flexibility of connecting to the TruMatic 1000 fiber via the TRUMPF laser network. With a low cost of entry, these fabricators can easily switch from strictly 2D laser cutting to punch-laser processing. This machine is designed to automatically sort finished parts up to 7 in x 7 in. Processed parts are sent down a chute and can be sorted into a series of four boxes (16 in x 12 in). The boxes are positioned below the machine for easy removal.

Alternatively, an additional extra-large flexible parts flap, a standard feature of the TruMatic 1000 fiber, provides users with a second choice for part sorting. Equipped with a sensor that detects whether all the parts have been properly ejected from the machine’s working area, this system can be used to eject long and wide parts into containers as well as onto conveyors or pallets during both the punching and laser operations. The machine simply ejects the parts through the generously sized flap and places them straight in the container. The TruMatic 1000 fiber is more compact than any other comparable machine on the market even when configured with automated handling. It can be integrated with the SheetMaster Compact, an automation system that loads small-to-medium sized sheets and blanks and unloads microjoint sheets and scrap skeletons. Optimized loading cycles make it possible to complete most of these tasks while the machine is in operation. The machine is also equipped with an intuitive touchscreen for easy operation and is compatible with the MobileControl for remote operation from a tablet. This machine comes equipped with the TruTops Boost Punch software for maximum ease in programming.
