Trumpf’s TruLaser Robot 5020 provides an easy, cost-effective entry into laser welding for applications ranging from sheet metal parts to bent profiles as well as 3D geometries commonly produced on milling centers. The machine is designed for both high-volume and high-mix environments and provides the quality, strength and speed that laser welding offers in a ready-made, off-the-shelf solution.

The machine shares a laser source via the company’s LaserNetwork, enabling as many as four different machines to use the laser source through optimized delivery of the beam. With this capability, the company says, the machine provides a flexible and cost-effective entry into laser welding while shortening the payback period for other machines on the network.

Once the part is selected and the clamping unit set, a highly productive manufacturing process is the essential next step. With the optional TeachLine control, the TruLaser Robot 5020 automatically ensures the travel path of the robot correctly corresponds to the weld seam of the part, making quick changeover between parts easy and reliable. Options for manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic fixture tables enable productive means for presenting the part for welding and to make a better part at a lower cost.
