Digital networking creates transparency

The ability to react more quickly, to process more parts in less time, to monitor machines and cut costs at the same time: These are all the benefits behind Industry 4.0. Connect components inside and outside of your production facility and support the digital exchange of information. This will improve your processes and increase your earnings.

Factory Gate und Device Gate vernetzen ihre Laser und Maschinen mit ihrem Unternehmensnetzwerk und / oder der Cloud. Über diese digitalen, IT-sicheren Verbindungen rufen Sie jederzeit die Daten und Informationen Ihrer Geräte ab. Eine wichtige Grundlage für Industrie 4.0. Das Device Gate ist die smarte Lösung für einzelne Geräte, das Factory Gate für ganze Gerätepools.

Einfach und vor allem sicher

Sie installieren die Software auf Ihrem eigenen Server, für eine sichere Datenübertragung.

Skalierbare Lösung

Per Factory Gate binden Sie mehrere Geräte ins Netzwerk ein – auch standortübergreifend.

Jederzeit transparent

Standardprotokolle (http / https) für die volle Transparenz ohne Verwendung von VPN-Verbindungen

Schnell erweitert

Sie erweitern Ihr Factory Gate bei Bedarf auch mit Applikationen von Drittanbietern.

Intelligente Informationsbereitstellung

Ergebnisse von Expertenanalysen können über die bestehende Infrastruktur bereitgestellt werden.

Device Gate

The Device Gate is pre-installed ex-works on your laser. All you need to do is activate it to give digital access to your laser data. Device Gate enables you to send data from your laser or your machine directly and safely to the cloud or to TRUMPF. You can take advantage of services such as Condition Monitoring. Device Gate is above all recommended when you would just like to network a single device. Factory Gate should be used for constellations with several machines.

Factory Gate

Mit dem Factory Gate vernetzen Sie mehrere Laser und Maschinen digital. Durch die Option, mehrere Factory Gates in verschiedene Instanzen ihres Netzwerkes zu installieren, verbinden Sie flexibel alle Elemente Ihrer Fertigung. Die Softwarelösung installieren Sie dazu auf Ihrem Server. Daten können so unverschlüsselt fließen, da alles innerhalb Ihres sicheren Netzwerks bleibt. Die IT-Abteilung inspiziert den Datenverkehr dabei permanent. Dort wo Daten verschlüsselt versendet werden müssen – also beim Transport über Ihre Unternehmensgrenze hinweg – stehen verschiedene Verschlüsselungstechnologien wie SSL/ HTTPS zur Verfügung. Diese Technologie ermöglicht es ohne VPN-Verbindungen oder offene Eingangsports auszukommen.

Condition Based Services

Die Condition Based Services sind ein Baustein für Industrie 4.0 und Ihre vernetze Fertigung. Sie bestehen im Wesentlichen aus den Elementen Factory Gate, welches die Anbindung von Lasern ermöglicht, Smart View Services und Condition Monitoring. Ziel ist es, die Verfügbarkeit und Produktivität vernetzter Lasersysteme zu erhöhen und Einsparpotenziale zu identifizieren.

No matter how networked you already are, the goal is clear: the ability to increase complexity and decrease lot sizes in sheet metal processing. We will accompany you step by step through your Smart Factory journey with our solutions. No two paths are the same: the components are combined to create the ideal solution for your requirements.


We create transparency: regarding the productivity of the entire shop floor and the status of your TRUMPF machinery

Clarity and flexibility

Provides clarity and flexibility: saves real cash and valuable time thanks to data-based analysis

Easy integration

Simplifies the integration of TRUMPF machines and external machines into monitoring systems, regardless of the age, manufacturer, or technology of your machines

Easier condition monitoring

Facilitates condition monitoring and analysis by monitoring products, or the provision of data for local systems

Seamless integration of many TRUMPF machines into your own software environment is very easy. 

What can you do with existing machines that do not have a standardized data exchange function? TRUMPF has the perfect solution.

Connect TRUMPF machines to your individual monitoring system

Most current machine tools from TRUMPF have the option of establishing OPC UA-based communication using interfaces. For older machines, we offer the OPC UA Retrofit Cube. Based on your machine status data, you receive analyses in the form of dashboards along with action recommendations for faster problem solving. This gives you transparency regarding machine status and allows you to maximize your machine availability. With the interface for the production status, for example, you receive information which can be used to detect the capacity utilization of your machines and for processing in your individual software system.​

TruConnect, Retrofit Cube

The OPC UA Retrofit Cube integrates older TRUMPF machines into your monitoring system

Machines without interfaces for standardized data exchange, due their age, require the OPC UA Retrofit Cube. It provides the proprietary digital interfaces, even for software from third-party suppliers. The system consists of an industrial PC with an OPC UA interface. As soon as it is connected and configured, it provides you with the available signals locally.​

Connect machines from third-party suppliers with the world of TRUMPF

Do you need transparency for your entire machine pool, regardless of manufacturer or age of your machine? No problem, our Basic Connectivity Kit​ offers a solution for your production.

TruConnect Connectivity Kit

The Basic Connectivity Kit integrates machines from third-party suppliers and older TRUMPF machines into TruTops Monitor

Once installed, the Basic Connectivity Kit provides signals depending on the operating status of the machine – and incredibly simply: "Machine is stationary without malfunction," "Machine is stationary with malfunction," "Machine is in operation." TruTops Monitor interprets this information and displays it analogous to your other machines in the dashboard. This works around the clock at all workstations in your production. Of course, new TRUMPF machine tools are integrated into TruTops Monitor as standard.​
