Trumpf EdgeLine Bevel delivers customer value

The latest machine to arrive at The Laser Cutting Co (TLCC) is a Trumpf TruLaser 5040 flat-bed fibre laser cutter that features EdgeLine Bevel, a Trumpf solution that allows users to bevel or countersink part edges automatically during the cutting process, reducing the need for costly and time-consuming secondary processes. According to TLCC, EdgeLine Bevel will represent a “strong addition to its existing customer offering”.

The new machine arrived at the end of February 2022, supporting the company’s ethos of investing in the latest laser technology every year and being the first to market. It is the second Trumpf model on site, where it joins a TruLaser Tube 7000 CO2 machine, installed in 2020.

“One of our older flat-bed laser cutting machines was a 6 kW model from a Trumpf competitor, which was proving slower than general market demand,” explains TLCC sales director Charlie Day. “The faster TruLaser 5040 has provided a lot more capacity and is generally a much better machine. Our lasers are key to delivering on our short lead-time promises without compromising on cut quality.”

EdgeLine Bevel automatically inserts chamfers up to 45° and countersinks of various sizes, eliminating the need for secondary processes. The benefit: faster, more efficient, more flexible and simpler processes with fewer errors.

Says Day: “We want EdgeLine Bevel because many of our customers request countersinking and weld preparations. Although we can provide this service manually, EdgeLine Bevel will prove to be much more efficient, accurate and productive. As a large proportion of our customer base is essentially fabrication, engineering and welding oriented, the ability to offer countersinks and bevels on all parts will provide us with an even stronger proposition.”
