Trumpf 7036 up and running x 2
We were so pleased with the added CNC bending production and increased manufacturing flexibility that our first Trumpf 7036 press brake gave us in 2010 that we have installed a second (March 2011). With both CNC press brakes sharing CNC bending programs and CNC tooling we can move production schedules around to respond to the inevitable customer panics that come along (almost everyday).

Being able to share tooling, CNC programs and production jigs enables a greater flexibilty in production. We can now run both machines on a large batch of parts to reduce lead times or run production on one while trying out samples on the other press brake. We have a range of case studies which will be coming to our new website at http://www.vandf.co.uk/ very soon. We will be featuring CNC bend tooling and it’s impact on sheet metal components designs.
