Top-quality processing and accuracy
in 2 and 3 dimensions.
By taking advantage of TRUMPF’s cumulative experience and
skills, you can be assured of the best possible quality from
the very first part. The machine body is constructed in a cast
mineral composite that dampens vibrations caused by axis
movement, guaranteeing high process accuracy. And, the laser
power control constantly monitors the power input to the
workpiece to ensure that it lies within the programmed tolerance limits. The integrated machining process simulation and
collision detection functions guarantee maximum process reliability.
The machine software incorporates cutting technology tables
that define the ideal machining parameters for cutting operations using common types of laser, minimizing programming
requirements. These tables can be used, for instance, to automatically adapt the laser output to the cutting speed, and
optimize the edge quality of every part.

and versatile.
Numerous technology packages support you in the production process:
2-in-1 fiber: allows you to cut and weld using a single laserlight cable.
FocusLine Professional: automatically adjusts the focal position and diameter.
One-cutting-head strategy: one cutting head for every material and material thickness.
ControlLine: uses a capacitive sensor to keep the distance between the cutting nozzle and the sheet metal constant.
Cutting and welding with the 2-in-1 fiber.
The TruLaser Cell 3000 allows you both to cut and weld – including
deposition welding. Its 2-in-1 fiber, developed for solid-state
­lasers, enables the same optical cable to be used for both welding
and cutting operations. The innovative fiber consists of an inner
core and an outer ring core. For cutting applications, the laser beam
is coupled in to the fiber core, whereas in welding applications
it is coupled in to the ring core. In each case, the appropriate depth
of field and the optimum beam focus diameter are guaranteed.
To switch from cutting to welding or vice versa, it is merely necessary to replace the processing adapter: system controls automati­
cally adjust the laser beam. You not only achieve the optimum processing results, but also benefit from owning a system that is
easier to operate and can be used in a significantly wider range of

Laser welding.
In the majority of cases, laser welding proves quicker and more
efficient than alternative processing techniques. In series production, laser welding practically eliminates the need for reworking. Laser processing is between five and ten times faster
than conventional welding. What’s more, the laser is capable
of welding almost any type of seam to a high standard, while
its low heat input keeps distortion to a minimum.

The laser is extremely flexible: it can produce highly delicate
spot welds just as well as deep-welded seams of several meters
in length. You can even alter the focal diameter during processing – for example, you might want a tapered weld seam.
Reliable laser processes make for excellent repeat accuracy.
According to the requirements of the part to be processed, a
laser output of up to 8 kW gives you the option of spot, seam,
deep penetration or thermal-conduction welding. Simply equip
the modular clamping system with the appropriate customized tool and you are ready to embark on a versatile production process that delivers reproducible results.

Laser cutting.
Laser cutting is economical because the results are so precise, yielding burr-free
cuts with narrow cutting gaps while keeping the heat-affected zone small. You’ll
also save money on tools since the non-contact laser is wear-free. The software
­incorporates cutting technology tables which make it a lot easier to program your
laser and achieve a high level of productivity with high-quality cuts. Users simply
specify the type and thickness of the material and the control system automatically selects the appropriate cut settings.
2D laser cutting of stator strips.
The one-cutting-head strategy allows you to cut materials of varying thicknesses
without having to change the focusing optics. ControlLine technology compensates for variances in 2D and 3D parts; the sensor keeps the distance between
the cutting nozzle and the sheet metal constant even if the sheet metal is uneven. This avoids collisions even when workpiece tolerance is set higher, meaning that you can always rely on the best cutting results.
The modular, height-adjustable workpiece table with its flexible clamping system can be fitted with a 2D cutting support, rotary axes or customized devices,
­depending on the process and the nature of the workpiece.

Extremely user-friendly and ergonomic.
Every last detail of the TruLaser Cell 3000 was developed with maximum user-friendliness in mind. This applies to the ergonomic, swivel-mounted control panel and
equally to the machine’s accessibility and safety features. The TruLaser Cell 3000 has
an easy programming system that enables you to advance quickly from the initial
­design to the finished part.

TruTops Laser allows you to program cutting work in 2D easily and reliably. The
­program nests the various parts in the most efficient way and selects the most economical laser output for the task in hand. For 3D processing, you can take advantage of the TruTops Cell programming system. This automated and process-reliable
system uses the tool path to generate your NC program while the machine is in
­operation, making sure that it exactly matches the welding or cutting operation and
your machine. This saves you money.
