2TruLaser fiber guided: historyTRUMPF introduced the TruLaser 7040 (2 cutting heads) mounting afiber guided TruDisk 6kW at Euroblech ‘08TRUMPF officially introduced the TruLaser 5030 mounting a fiberguided TruDisk 3kW at Euroblech ‘10TRUMPF introduced the TruLaser 1030 equipped with a fiber-guidedTruDisk 2kW at Fabtech in November 2010TRUMPF officially introduced the TruLaser 5030 mounting a fiberguided TruDisk 5kW at Intech in December 2011
3TruLaser fiber guided: todayRight now TRUMPF proposes 2 series of fiber guided machines:TruLaser 5030 equipped with a fiber-guided TruDisk 3kW or 5kWTruLaser 1030 equipped with a fiber-guided TruDisk 2kW

5TruDisk: LD modules and kaleidoscope4 LD bar pumping modules for each discKaleidoscope for rounding to the discthe light edmitted12
8TruDisk• source with solid state active material: the generated laser beam has λ≈1μm, andcan be transported through fiber, but the beam is not generated in fiber.• it is a solid state source far far away from a fiber laser source made up bymany parts:• LD (diode) pumping module, kaleidoscope• Cavity with disc, heat sink and parabolic amplifying mirrors• Resonator with output mirrors, corner mirrors and rear mirror.Every source with a cavity has a WARM-UP time!
9TruDisk• The delivery fiber has a min. section of 100μm (2 or 3kW) or 200μm (6kW),against the 50 μm of a 2kW fiber source: the beam generated in a cavity must be“reflected” and “focused” within the fiber, the diameter of which must not betoo small (the diameter of the focused beam will be at least from 2 up to 4 timesbigger).• 15%-20% efficiency.9
10TruLaser 1030 fiberIt is an entry level laser equipped with 2kW TruDisc.The peculiarity is given by an airplane-type structuresimilar to that of Salvagnini, but the manipulator integrateseven a moving exhaust ventilation (higher inertia)The basic version is without pallet changer, but as optionthere are:Semi-automatic pallet changer (without light barrier andpallet change by two-hand operation), price around 15.000€.Automatic pallet changer (with a light barrier for a fullyautomated pallet change), price around 30.000€.TRUMPF counts on user-friendly system, reducedoperating and maintenance costs, quick and simpleinstallation and smaller footprint.Automation: only hoist-type loading system installed onthe right shoulder of the machine.1212
11TruLaser 1030 fiberMachine’s max.speeds shows that TruLaser 1030 dynamics are unable to take theadvantages of high linear cutting speeds of a SSL source.12mm6mm5mm2mm3mm
1212TruLaser 5030 fiberIt is a high end laser equipped with a 3kW TruDisc source.The axes feature a Gantry drive in X and linear drives in Y and Z.TRUMPF does not push a lot on the disc source concept: they push on2 main concepts:• it is a solid state laser (SSL).• it is fiber guided, saying that, generally speaking, the fiber-guidedsolid state lasers are identified by the word “fiber”.Thanks to the SSL source.Thanks to a high dynamics machine.Thanks to the SSL source high efficiency.Thanks to the SSL source wavelength.
1313TruLaser 5030 fiberTRUMPF introduces a new concept in their marketing: the cost per part.According to their news release, the advantage on part cost comes just from productivity(advantage on thin thickness), not from reduced energy consumption or from reducedconsumable and maintenance costs.TRUMPF pushes on material and operator costs: but these costs are independent from the machine!
1414TruLaser 5030 fiberTRUMPF pushes a lot on the cutting quality that can be achieved on thin material by amachine equipped with an SSL source.
1515TruLaser 5030 fiberthe 3kW SSL source is compared to a 5kW CO2 source.a fully enclosed SSL source equipped machine is safe!!
1616TruLaser 5030 fiberOnly one cutting head for the whole range ofmaterials/thicknesses (adaptive optics)Automatic nozzle changer as options (priceseems to be around 30.000€).Possibility of integrating modular automation.clickhttp://www.euroblech.trumpf.com/trulaser-5030-fiber.html
17TRUMPF does not have Tradjust®like Salvagnini therefore for everymaterial/thickness the are 3 sets of cutting parameters:Small contour cuttingMedium contour cuttingBig contour cuttingMore job in case of parameters maintenance.Cutting parameters

41Even TRUMPF allows head refrigeration just with Nitrogen,regardless the cutting gas at a pressure of 11bar.N2 consumption is 15l/min (0.9m3/h)TRUMPF asks for Nitrogen flow of 1l/min even when machine isswitched off.Gas consumption for head refrigeration15 l/min 25 l/min

44TruFiberRight now TRUMPF propose also a 400W single-module fiber laser source : it is a SPIsource (English company acquired by TRUMPF in October 2008 for 42M€,against a turnover of SPI of about 20M€) covered with TRUMPF cover panels.SPI announced that starting from june 2012 they will be on the market with a multi-module source composed by 1kW modules for OEM.
