The TruBend 7036 is known as an ergonomic press brake designed with adjustable foot rest and table, plus tilt control.

A feature of the TruBend Series 7000 includes the ability to increase its bending speed simply by making adjustments to the machine parts relevant to the bending process: the back gauge and the beam. The back gauge is made with lightweight carbon fiber, and the surfaces on which the bent part contacts the fingers of the back gauge are made of hardened steel. These design features are said to enable the TruBend Series 7000 to set new standards for achieving accurate results.

In addition, the torque motor, which drives the beam, can deliver power even at low speeds. It ensures rapid axis movements and is low maintenance, since it has no gears and, therefore, needs no gear oil.  The extremely energy-efficient electric motor also reduces energy costs. The TruBend Series 7000 also features enhanced ergonomics. Optimum working conditions and user-friendly operating elements are integrated into the machine design. The operator can control the machine while sitting down and work without becoming fatigued, which helps ensure the quantity and quality of the fabricated parts. Gas spring supported pedals allow the height and angle of the foot rests to be adjusted. The arm support is also adjustable in height, so that every operator can set up his or her workplace individually.

In addition, the monitor for the TASC 6000 control system of the TruBend Series 7000 can be adjusted electronically and set to the appropriate angle. Optional TRUMPF LED lighting illuminates the area in front of and behind the beam, ensuring correct lighting conditions precisely at the bend, without heat radiation. An optional laser diode also projects the bend line onto the surface of the sheet metal, simplifying the accuracy of guiding the workpiece into the back gauge.
