Laser Blanking from Coils
The TruLaser 8000 Coil Edition is a new laser blanking solution from TRUMPF that’s now available in the North American market. The TruLaser 8000 Coil Edition can process up to 25 tons of coiled sheet metal from start to finish without any human intervention. It is an attractive option for companies interested in flexible, high-volume solutions for sheet metal fabrication.
Coil production enables users to achieve more efficient nesting of parts. Conventional sheets are limited by their four outer edges, which often makes it difficult for production workers to make full use of the entire sheet. Unused sections of the sheet either must be discarded as scrap or melted down. A coil solves this problem by allowing users to nest an almost endless number of parts on the sheet, which reduces material consumption by around 15 percent. Compared to conventional blanking presses, the new system also heralds a significant reduction in construction and logistics costs.
The TruLaser 8000 Coil Edition makes production more profitable by eliminating tooling costs, optimizing material use, reducing assembly costs and boosting flexibility in the production environment.

CI Launches XFORM Press Brake
Designed for the operator and built for the owner, CI’s new XFORM press brake incorporates exciting new technological and ergonomics features.
XFORM’s new ergonomic pendant arm (Omni-Arm) and expanded console are especially significant. With extended reach, multiple pivot points, greater flexibility for positioning, rotation and orientation, controls can be positioned anywhere in the workplace for greater operator efficiency. And with dual 24-inch monitors, full screen bend simulation, optional rear and front camera view, USB connectivity, Ethernet/WiFi/Bluetooth compatibilities and more, the machine’s new Human Machine Interface creates a highly efficient and interactive workstation environment.
CI offers three variations of the machine ranging from the standard XFORM, XFORMe (an ecological hybrid design with operating efficiencies resulting in less oil usage and more energy savings) and XFORMc (a customized version).

ESAB Intros Rogue Welding Series
ESAB, a world leader in fabrication technology, has unveiled its new series of Rogue EM and Rogue EMP inverter-based welding power sources. These easy-to-use, compact and lightweight welders feature an industrial design with digital controls and a five-handle roll cage for portability, cable management and protection.
The Rogue EM 125i, Rogue EM 140i, Rogue EM 180i, Rogue EM 190i, Rogue EM 210i MIG/flux cored welders and Rogue EMP 210i multi-process welder use power-management technology to create positive arc starts and a smooth, stable welding arc with minimal spatter. All Rogue EM and EMP welders feature Arc Dynamics, a control to fine tune arc characteristics for a crisp/stiff arc when welding carbon steel or a smooth/soft arc when welding stainless steel.
“The Rogue series represents ESAB’s ability to transfer the features and benefits of our heavier industrial machines into light industrial welders that meet the diverse needs of welding professionals and first-time welders,” said Olivier Biebuyck, president, EMEA and Global Product, ESAB Corporation.

AMADA Expands Line of Power Supplies
AMADA WELD TECH Inc., a leading manufacturer of resistance welding, laser welding, marking, cutting, and micromachining equipment and systems, offers MIB-300A and MIB-600A AC Inverter Welding Power Supplies. The supplies provide increased control resulting in more exact heat input and better quality welds as compared to traditional AC weld controls.
The AC inverter uses inverter technology with pulsewidth modulation to produce and simulate an AC waveform.
Unlike AC welders that use line frequency and depend on well-regulated facility power, the AC inverter can produce an AC frequency from 50 Hz to 500 Hz allowing more precise energy delivery in less time, is not affected by line voltage fluctuation and can provide a balanced threephase load.
The MIB-300A and MIB-600A feature secondary constant current control, up to 20 pulses per weld, and the ability to set upslope, downslope and weld interrupt.

Voortman Debuts Fabricator
Voortman Steel Machinery has unveiled the Voortman Fabricator:
The Premier Welding System for Structural Steel.
The new system is capable of producing the most common steel construction profiles – plates, angle irons, tubes, U-profiles, crane runway consoles – and is the world’s first welding robot that can both fit and weld. As a necessary solution to the shortage of welders, this robot allows for fully automated production of welding. Welders who perform this craftmanship can now focus on specialized welding projects instead. The welding process will no longer be interrupted, allowing for better planning and consistent quality.
