The TRUMPF TruLaser Cell Series 7000 is a high-end laser processing centre featuring minimal processing costs and maximum flexibility. Available with either a CO2 or solid state laser, the cell may used for cutting, welding and deposition welding. Featuring a 2 in 1 fiber solution that delivers the beam for cutting in the fiber core, and the beam for welding in the outer core, the transition from cutting to welding is minimal. In this video, the TruLaser Cell 7040 is shown cutting parts that have been hot stamped, one of many ideal applications for the fast, flexible and productive TruLaser Cell Series 7000.
