Trumpf invests eleven million euros in the production of highly automated laser systems for sheet metal processing.

The company has developed these systems together with Siemens and other partners. The systems are used in large, sheet-metal processing and networked factories. According to the company, they can process up to 2.5 kilometres of coiled sheet metal without human intervention. The region holds a leading position worldwide in the field of mechanical and plant engineering, said Arnim Brüchle, managing director of Trumpf in Neukirch.

In addition, a so-called telediagnosis centre for laser machines is starting up in Neukirch. It can take over the control and remote maintenance of machines with which customers cut their sheet metal around the clock, the statement said. The laser machines could be controlled from anywhere in the world online.

The site in Upper Lusatia was founded in 1992 and has since been expanded into mechanical engineering production for sheet metal processing.

Trumpf now employs around 450 people in Neukirch. In the 2019/20 financial year, the Trumpf Group generated sales of almost 3.49 billion euros with 14 325 employees.
