 The new TruLaser 1030 fibre with its solid-state laser cuts also nonferrous metals
 The new TruLaser 1030 fibre, which features the high TRUMPF quality, is easy to operate, with compact dimensions and gentle on the budget. The 2D laser unit is equipped with a TruDisk 2001 solid-state laser, expanding the range of applications for the TruLaser Series 1000, made by TRUMPF. In addition to aluminium, stainless steel and mild steel, this new unit cuts nonferrous metals. Furthermore, it lets shops make a debut in laser welding at reasonable expense. Like the CO2 version from the series, the TruLaser 1030 fibre is intended especially for businesses with little or no experience in laser cutting. But its modest investment level also makes it suitable as a complementary machine for experienced job shops — used for prototype construction, for instance.
 Thanks to the solid-state laser, the TruLaser 1030 fibre shows its strengths in the variety of materials it can work and its capability to process thin sheet metal. It can cut copper up to three millimetres thick or brass up to two millimetres thick. Mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium can be cut at gauges of twelve, six and five millimetres, respectively. The laser, a highly flexible tool, can cut virtually every contour. The TruDisk laser offers additional advantages with its low energy costs and its capacity for integration into a network. In the LaserNetwork, for instance, a welding unit can use the laser beam when the TruLaser 1030 fibre is not actively cutting. That makes for affordable entry into the world of laser welding. Several machines can use the same beam source and act together optimizing its utilization.
The TruLaser 1030 fibre was intended to be just as compact as it is easy to use. TRUMPF attached great importance to that. The machine is intuitive in its operation and both cutting programs and repeat production can be nested in just a few steps, right at the machine. The single cutting head strategy has also been implemented. The universal cutting head automatically adjusts the beam as needed to cut metal of any thickness up to the maximum gauge. The unit’s footprint is very small and the laser can be set up near the machine as required. That means the system will fit in even the smallest shop. In addition, the TruLaser 1030 fibre is quickly installed and will be cutting its first part in a very brief period of time.
