Trumpf has launched the new TruLaser 3003 workstation for users carrying out medium-sized laser welding batches. The new system is described as being flexible, economic and ergonomic. For example, if the application requires a pulsed laser, such as for welding temperature-sensitive components, users can select a TruPulse laser. Disk, diode or fibre lasers, up to an output of 1,000W, can be combined with the TruLaser Station 3003 to create lap joints in heat exchangers. An additional use includes removing layers or stripping semiconductors, in which case the microprocessing laser from the TruMicro Series can be installed in the laser workstation.

The TruLaser Station 3003 works economically and with minimal auxiliary processing times due to its programmable focusing optics (PFO 20/ PFO 33). This is enabled via an integrated scanner optic ensuring that neither the workpiece nor the optic have to be moved for processing. Linear axes that expand the working range are available as an option.

Despite its compact dimensions of 860 x 2,000 x 1,310mm, the laser workstation has a large working range of 300 x 300 x 500mm. Its automatic swinging doors provide fast and ergonomic loading of workpieces.
