As an independent, family-owned company, TRUMPF acts long-term. In October, TRUMPF purchased approximately five acres of land in Hoffman Estates, a northwestern suburb of Chicago, Illinois. Located within one of the core zones of the sheet metal business in North America, this site will serve as the future home of the TRUMPF Technology Center and the center of excellence for Industry 4.0.

TRUMPF is the largest manufacturer of fabricating equipment and industrial lasers in North America, serving customers in sheet metal processing, laser-based production processes and electronic applications. TRUMPF’s innovations span over six decades and have enabled the company to grow to more than 50 locations and 10,000 employees worldwide, with sales in excess of $3 billion.

The new Technology Center will lead with a strong focus on integrating automation, material and information flow with machine tools. Concept plans show the facility will be approximately 50,000 square feet and will also feature TRUMPF’s latest technologies designed to benefit manufacturers and the next generation of manufacturing engineers. The state-of-the-art facility will combine an innovative automation center with research and development, driving towards “one piece flow” sheet metal production capabilities.

Visitors will include those from North America, Europe and Asia for system and machine demonstrations and to observe and be part of live sheet metal production with highly-automated and flexible machine tools and processes.
