TRUMPF has been a Family business since 1923. Innovation and technology leading is important to TRUMPF’s strategy. With nearly 15,000 employees worldwide and revenue over 3.5 billion Euros there is a global manufacturing network, all linked and optimised by SYNCHRO (TRUMPF’s Lean model).

In additional to Laser manufacture, TRUMPF produce Machine tools for cutting and bending materials. Other business fields include Additive manufacturing, Photonic components and Extreme Ultra Violet lasers (used in semiconductor manufacture).

TRUMPF UK Laser Ltd (aka TGBL) is growing and evolving with many new, “sustainable” markets finding applications for Pulsed Laser products, such as components for electric mobility.

TGBL (formerly SPI Lasers) is fully integrated into TRUMPF’s Production network as a Customer and Supplier to other TRUMPF subsidiaries. TGBL also sell directly to non-TRUMPF Customers.

TruPulse nano Products (one of the three Product Value Streams at TGBL) represent high volume Production within the TRUMPF network and have leveraged SYNCHRO methodologies to focus on one piece flow, levelled Production and linked planning triggers to minimise inventory and increase flexibility.

An in-house designed MES system enables structure and transparency to Production status and capacity.

You will see a Production line and workstations designed to eliminate waste and provide transparency. Monitored with simple shopfloor management and complex, deep dive data from MES to optimise and redesign.

The visit will focus on Unit 4 in Southampton. There are two other Production units in Southampton, for other Product line assembly and Fibre Production. There is also a Production site in Rugby, who is both a Customer and Supplier to Southampton Cells.
