The TRUMPF TruLaser 5030 fiber laser cutting machine equipped with a 10 kW TruDisk laser made its world debut at FABTECH 2017 in Chicago.

 The TruLaser 5030 fiber equipped with a 10 kW TruDisk powers through mild steel up to 25.4 mm (1 in.), stainless steel up to 38.1 mm (1.5 in.) and aluminum up to 25.4 mm (1 in.). The machine’s patented HighSpeed Eco cutting technology minimizes nitrogen consumption while maximizing productivity using the newly designed bi-flow nozzle. 

The TruLaser 5030 fiber is able to process complex contours and thin to thick sheets while keeping the cost per part to a minimum. The BrightLine fiber, CoolLine, and PierceLine functions guarantee high-quality laser processing in thicker materials as well. CoolLine stabilizes the cutting process in steel by use of targeted cooling. This results in greater material tolerance while enabling more intricate material contours and a tighter layout of parts. The PierceLine function with improved piercing capabilities enables the laser to process smaller contours while significantly boosting speed.

To take full advantage of the TruDisk 10001 laser, the machine was designed to achieve high acceleration and axis speeds resulting in significant productivity gains in medium thickness materials. 

The new Smart Nozzle Automation with the integrated nozzle inspection feature now includes the option to load and unload nozzles while the machine continues cutting. This minimizes setup time and operator intervention thus maximizing productivity. The TruLaser 5030 fiber also rapidly marks durable Dot Matrix Codes on processed parts ensuring that parts are easily indentified and tracked in subsequent operations making the machine a key component in any Industry 4.0 application. A new multi-touch display simplifies the user interface making the TruLaser 5030 fiber easy to learn and operate.

The Drop&Cut feature aids in cost-effective production and enables operators to easily use part skeletons for additional production. Operators are provided with a live image of the machine’s interior on the control unit’s user interface. From the control unit, the operator simply clicks or taps the screen to drag the programmed contour to the desired location on the projected sheet and initiates the cut. With the new TruLaser 5030 fiber, the process is conveniently managed from a new and ergonomic 19-inch control panel that can be adjusted to an ergonomic height.
