Trumpf lasers at cutting edge of World Trade Center

In May the laser cut spire for the One World Trade Center was permanently installed in New York City.

Kammetal, an architectural and ornamental metal fabricator based in Brooklyn, New York, fabricated the top part of the spire and pinnacle of the new building. At 1,776 feet, the height pays tribute to the year the United States declared its independence and establishes One World Trade Center as the tallest building in the western hemisphere.

The spire’s glass and stainless steel structure, which features a rotating beacon to illuminate the Manhattan skyline at night, was laser cut on a TruLaser 1030.
