Trumpf Inc. launched a new generation of its TruBend Cell 5000 automated bending cell. The cell can be programmed using TecZone Bend software, which is included. In most cases, no manual intervention is necessary, and the software can even process multiple parts simultaneously where required. It provides fully automated calculations of the optimum bending sequence, the optimum combination of tools and the path to be followed by the robot. It also ensures collisions are avoided throughout the bending process. The software can break down assemblies in just one click to show the individual parts.
