The philosophy of mechanical engineering firm TRUMPF is to refine integrated production technology digitally and make it future-proof. As a result, selected innovations are presented comprehensively in the image part of the annual report. The cover page of the 2017 / 18 annual report shows an interference pattern, thus referencing the double-slit experiment familiar to scientists. The dispersion of light in wave form inspired the design concept and, as a recurring element, serves as the base for the entire annual report. Selected colours demarcate the individual business divisions and make it easier for readers to navigate the report.
