Trumpf has announced that UK-based job shop Cirrus Laser has become the first firm in the world to invest in the new TruLaser 5030 fiber model laser. The fibre-guided solid-state 2D laser cutting machine was recently unveiled at Trumpf's In-Tech exhibition in Germany. The device capitalises on all the benefits associated with the Trumpf disc laser and, which Cirrus believes will translate into competitive prices for its customers.
In the highly competitive world of subcontract laser cutting, the latest manufacturing technology is king - a philosophy that underpinned the growth of Cirrus Laser, with the company's TruLaser 5030 fibre the latest in a succession of technology investments.
'To remain competitive our prices must be sharp, and that means we have to make more quality parts, faster, using the best technology available,' explains Cirrus' managing director David Connaway. 'Our leasing programme is structured so that we install the latest generation machine almost every 2.5 years, and I'm even looking to tighten up on that frequency.'
The Trumpf TruLaser 5030 fibre will be installed at the company’s Burgess Hill factory in late Autumn 2011, coinciding with the end of its lease on a TruLaser 3030. This latest generation machine provides the lowest possible parts cost in thin sheet processing and incorporates proven features to reduce non-productive times significantly. The single head cutting strategy, automatic nozzle changer, highly dynamic movement along all axes and sensor-controlled processes enhance performance and increase component output.
