Tube traditionally is produced with a constant wall thickness, leaving design engineers stuck with designing tubular parts and unable to optimize them. A tube with variable wall thickness changes all that. This technology allows design engineers to specify the wall thickness in various areas of a tubular component—increasing the wall thickness in bend regions to prevent splitting and decreasing wall thickness elsewhere to reduce part weight.
At FABTECH, TRUMPF will display products to propel your business further into the lead including: the new TruBend Center which enables bend geometries not possible with a traditional panel bender, flexible automation concepts for laser cutting, punching and bending machines, and our new TruTops Boost software featuring all-in-one design and programming. Get the “Boost” that only TRUMPF can provide. Stop by and see us in Booth S1701. Visit our website.
