The performance capacities of the 2D laser machines and the solid-state lasers made by TRUMPF continue to advance. Just as in previous years, TRUMPF has unveiled technology highlights at each trade fair, redefining the standards for cutting with a solid-state laser. Worthy of special mention are the BrightLine fiber function, which turned the solid-state laser into an all-purpose tool, and the CoolLine feature. The latter stabilizes the cutting process for thick mild steel by way of closely defined cooling. This makes it possible, for instance, to cut extremely tight curves. At this Blechexpo in Stuttgart TRUMPF once again introduced new innovations that will make a decisive advance in laser cutting.
