Whether it is in the field of machine tools and power tools for sheet metal manufacturing, or in the laser technology and medical industries, TRUMPF is leading the way with technological innovation. The angle measurement system, known for its automatic control of the ACB, and the patented four-cylinder drive technology are two milestones in the field of bending, first developed by TRUMPF in 1997 and 2004, respectively. At the exhibition site, these two models attracted many visitors to stop and watch. With its continuous innovation and focus on professional production methods and continuous reform as its development program, the TRUMPF Group, while its business continues to expand, also firmly occupies sheet metal processing, laser production, electronic applications and medical equipment. competitive advantage in other fields.
