TruBend Center 7020 Automated Panel Bending Solution

Feb. 20, 2023
TRUMPF's bending center offers the highest box height of any commercially available panel bending machine and reduces cycle time by up to 80%.

A fully automatic panel bending machine designed to process complex parts quickly and efficiently, the TruBend Center 7020 can bend parts with side lengths of up to 13.8 in. (350.5 mm). The machine can also handle material thicknesses of up to 0.15 in. (3.8 mm) in aluminum, 0.12 in. (3 mm) in steel, and 0.08 in. (2 mm) in stainless steel, extending over the entire bending length.


Compared to a manual press brake, the 7020 works up to 80%, depending on the specific part and bending operations involved. Panel bending technology is particularly suitable for fabricating complex parts with radius bends, short side lengths, and narrow profiles. It produces these types of parts more efficiently and at a higher level of quality than traditional die bending.


The rotary part manipulator can move the part even closer to the bending line, reducing the cycle time by eliminating the need to reposition the grippers during processing. TRUMPF engineers also designed the machine to be as open and accessible as possible. Workers can load and unload the machine from the side without having to lean into the interior.


TruBend Center 7020 uses the ToolMaster system to ensure that the blank holder tools, which hold the part in place during the bending process, are correctly matched to each workpiece, thereby reducing set-up time. Programming is quick and easy with the TecZone Fold software—users can create the bending program on the computer in just a few clicks.


With dimensions measuring less than 19.7 x 19.7 ft (6 x 6 m), the system fits easily on almost any shop floor. The TruBend Center 7020 can be used to process parts up to 6.6 ft (2 m) long. It's ideal for producing large electrical cabinets for machines and for the construction industry, as well as tool cabinets, booths, battery trays, and machine enclosures. Catering to a flexible range of material thicknesses and part heights and offering simple programming and short set-up times, this system is suitable for job shops and other sheet-metal fabrication businesses that are looking to produce a broad variety of parts in both large and small batches.
