In Germany, Volkswagen AG of Wolfsburg has ordered 50 TruLaser Cell 8030 series laser cutting machines from Trumpf Laser und Systemtechnik GmbH of Ditzingen. The initial batch of machines will be divided among the automaker’s headquarters and its sites in Kassel and Spain. Trumpf is expected to fulfill the entire order over the next two years. Volkswagen will use the machines to produce hot-formed parts for car bodies. It selected the device based on its high productivity and combined it with Trumpf’s fiber-guided TruDisk laser, creating an overall package that minimizes cost per part.
