Why is TRUMPF a Software Campus partner?

TRUMPF has been a technology and market leader in machine tools for flexible sheet metal processing and industrial lasers for years. Whereas in the past, individual machines or applications were differentiated using technology, in the future, digital networking of manufacturing processes will gain importance as a differentiating feature on the market. TRUMPF is therefore developing highly complex software products and investing massively in this crucial future topic.

In short: we are already living the digital transformation very intensively, but there is still a lot to do. And we want to greatly expand the product portfolio of industry 4.0 solutions for our customers. To achieve this, we need dynamic and broad-minded specialists and managers with a software background who are enthusiastic about TRUMPF and our tasks and who will continue to grow with us. Also, it is very important to us to further develop and expand the already existing relationship between science and practice.
