The TRUMPF Smart Factories
No two productions are the same, no two development trajectories are alike. Not even the markets are identical in which our customers are active. This is why we make the factory of the future come alive, right where our customers are: whether in Europe, America or Asia – we demonstrate how a networked production actually works in real life in our Smart Factories on three continents. In TRUMPF's Smart Factories, the interaction of staff, machines, automation and software has already been perfected and these elements are fully networked. But regardless of whether our visitors are just starting out, want to expand step by step or would like to become fully networked, we meet them where they are today. Our Smart Factory Consultants analyze the process chains of each customer and on this basis, optimize all sequences on the shop floor. In line with the motto: our customers' success is a success for TRUMPF as well.
Our Smart Factory sites
The Chicago site is a natural fit for the Smart Factory. Around 40 percent of the sheet metal processing industry in the USA is located in the states directly surrounding it. Our US-American customers experience there how the Smart Factory provides support, from sorting to fully autonomous production. One highlight is the integrated cutting and bending cells. A so-called skywalk also makes it possible to get a better understanding of the production systems with their flow of material and information as an entire system.Find out more
30 networked machines across different process steps, 5,000 m² hall space with manual and automated material flows – there is a lot in store for visitors at our Smart Factory in Ditzingen at the TRUMPF headquarters. You can see for yourself how our Smart Factory experts customize solutions for the entire metal process chain. You can also experience the interplay of fully intelligent machines from third-party providers and automated guide vehicle systems in our Smart Factory.Find out more
Chinese customers can witness the production world of the future for themselves at our production site in Taicang. From laser cutting, bending and punching to laser welding – we make the whole process chain come alive and demonstrate to visitors the different customized solutions we can offer for networking. A fully automated production line as well as the TruTops Fab production management system were introduced in Taicang in 2017. The intelligent digital upgrade propelled the production there to the next level, providing transparency on the shop floor.Find out more
