The Trumpf Group is delighted to announce that Volkswagen AG has just confirmed a substantial order for its TruLaser Cell 8030 series laser cutting machines. The first phase of machines will be divided between Volkwagen's headquarters in Wolfsburg and its sites in Kassel and Spain. It forms just part of a much bigger order that will ultimately see Trumpf delivering more than 50 machines to Volkswagen during the next two years.
Volkswagen will be using the laser cutting machines in high-volume production of hot-formed parts for car bodies. The carmaker chose the Trumpf TruLaser Cell 8030 based on its very high productivity and teamed it with the energy-saving, fibre-guided TruDisk laser. This combination is designed to drive down operating costs and minimize the cost per part.
