TRUMPF offers portable power tools—the N700-2 nibbler, the C250-0 Plus double-cut shear, and the S250-6 electric shear—for coil line applications.
The company says the nibbler is the world's smallest and lightest in the heavy-duty class. The nibbler can rotate the punch guide, allowing it to cut in a backward direction and be pulled toward the operator. It comes standard with two different handles, and punch changes require no tools. The nibbler cuts steel 0.275 in. thick and stainless steel 0.106 in. thick.
The C250-0 Plus double-cut shear cuts sheet metal up to 0.098 in. thick at 32 FPM. It is suitable for spiral duct applications.
The S250-6 electric shear is designed to require minimal operator force, cut burr- and chip-free, and run with minimal noise.
