The Nibbler N500-8 from Trumpf cuts in all four cutting directions and is able to do so in the performance class that cuts steel sheets up to 0.197 inches thick. Trumpf officials report that reverse cutting is easy to do with the N500-8. It enables faster and more flexible processing. With the N500-8 nibbler, the user can perform this task safely, even when there is tension in the steel sheets because reverse cutting positions the user away from the sheets.
