Laser tube cutting machines: CNC pipes and profiles laser cutting
From small diameter tubes for furniture to large tubes for structural applications, there is a Lasertube every application. Each machine can process a wide range of tubes with no trade-offs in terms of reliability or cut quality.
BLM GROUP has the widest range of solutions available on the market: 2D laser cutting solutions, for cut off, features and joints between mating tubes in frames and structures. 3D laser cutting solutions for tilt cutting or chamfering in thick walled parts for weld prep. A five-axis laser for cutting stamped sheets, bent tubes or assemblies. Parts can be oriented by a robot or can sit stationary while the laser beam freely moves the cut path via 5D of motion.
Not just tube or not just sheet metal but both tube and sheet with a single machine. Thanks to this combination laser from BLM GROUP, your ability to switch from sheet to tube manufacturing will let you develop new market opportunities without the heavy investment and floor space requirement of two separate machines. Unlike other combination machines on the market your productivity for either tube or sheet is not compromised compared to dedicated single purpose laser machines.
you make the choice
You are free to choose a CO2 laser or fiber laser technology depending on your production requirements. Compare costs, cut quality and productivity then decide. Fiber laser has the advantage of being more energy-efficient. The laser is maintenance-free, you can cut materials such as copper, brass aluminium and galvanized and above all you can obtain very fast cutting speeds on thin steel and stainless steel. CO2 technology is a valid choice for oxygen-cutting in thicker walled mild steel tubes.
You are not limited to just round, square or rectangular. Special shaped tubes or open sections can be programmed and cut without problems.
The use of non-standard shaped tubes (i.e. not round, square or rectangular) has expanded greatly over the years.
You can process special sections and even open shapes without any special equipment.
The tube loading and handling capabilities combined with the design freedoms of the BLMelements software suite peerless provide unmatch capabilities, reliable operation and performance.
Drawing a part or an entire frame and transforming it into a machine program takes only a few seconds.
You can import 3D part models drawn using other CAD programs, quickly program them and send them, along with all of the instructions needed to start production, to the machine on the fly. Artube, the most complete and advanced CAD/CAM package on the market designed specifically for tube. Use it to exploit all the potential of your Lasertube right from the start..
The function for automatically importing part drawings and transforming them into machine programs will dramatically simplify your work load and save you precious time.
Program, simulate, produce and monitor all your systems – tube bending machines, Lasertube machines, sawing machines – all from a single control point. Handy, quick and easy to use! BLMelements is the software suite that gives you all the functions you need to manage BLM GROUP systems.
Bending and laser cutting this turns a tube into a finished product. But the use of two separate technologies has always caused difficulties. BLM GROUP machines are created to seemless marry these two technologies solving the problems of locating holes on bent tubular products. All automatically.
