£3 million sales confirmed
The projection that TRUMPF UK sales will close at the end of this current financial year at more than £52 million was certainly enhanced by orders the company received at its Open House event that ran from 12th–14th June. TRUMPF UK welcomed more than 200 visitors from 130 manufacturing companies and several were sufficiently impressed by what they saw to make an investment, confirming this event to be among the highlights of the sheet metalworking calendar in UK.
TRUMPF UK reports confirmed orders across its product ranges including the TruBend, TruPunch, TruMark and TruLaser including a TruLaser tube cutting machine. In total the order value was around £3 million.
All TRUMPF technologies were featured at the show, but the focus was on Industry 4.0, automation and the connected factory at every stage of implementation. Early feedback has confirmed that many visitors benefited significantly from the guidance of TRUMPF experts in this field who came from Austria, Germany and the USA.
Machine highlights included the TruLaser 3030 6kW and TruLaser 5030 8kW machines, both with BrightLine fiber, the TruPunch 5000 with SheetMaster, the TruBend 5130 with various productivity features and the TruTool power tools including the new 18V range.
The Open House also proved the excellent launch platform for the new TruLaser 2030 4kW BrightLine fiber machine in the UK, an entry level product for flat sheet laser cutting which sparked much interest.
