CNC Automatic Tube Saw offers productive, flexible operation.
June 10, 2011 -
Tube cutting system TC720 operates as stand-alone unit or as part of automated tube processing line controlled by single CNC, integrating downstream functions such as deburring, washing, drying, and accumulating. Programming system automatically selects optimum parameters for job at hand, and complete changeover can be accomplished in less than 3 min with all settings centralized and to scale. Saw performs cutting of square and rectangular sections with slideway mounted cutting head.

New Tube Saw from BLM Group USA Delivers High Levels of Automation and Quality
The TC720 automatic tube saw from BLM GROUP USA (Wixom, MI) is an advanced tube cutting system that combines high productivity, accuracy, economical operation, and an exceptional degree of flexibility. It has been designed to operate either as a stand alone unit or as part of a fully automated tube processing line controlled by a single CNC, integrating all downstream functions such as deburring, washing, drying and accumulating.
As an aid to both ease of use and flexibility, operators can use the TC720's innovative programming system to automatically select the optimum parameters for the job at hand. This is because the system has an applications tested database covering blade speeds and feeds for different materials, saw blade selection and material feed speed. This feature boosts production efficiency and enables complete changeover to be accomplished in less than three minutes with all settings centralized and to scale. No tools are needed or sample tube.
Two length stops can be fitted for the best material optimization and yield and three unloading positions are programmable and can be integrated with downstream deburring, washing, and collecting operations.
The material feed system and vise geometry assure the positive clamping of the material during the cutting cycle whether the material is delicate thin walled tube or the tough, thick walled variety.
This innovative new CNC saw performs cutting of square and rectangular sections with a slideway mounted cutting head. The cutting head construction, with hardened and ground helical gears and automatic backlash compensation, guarantees longer blade life with low noise levels and optimum cut quality on all materials and sections. In addition, the TC720's micro-lubrication and turbo-refrigeration features enhance blade life even under arduous cutting conditions. This also reduces sharpening costs and energy consumption.
The TC720 can be equipped with 5 or 7 stanchion loaders to load tube length 21' 4" to
27' 10" and a special 41 feet Version for standard or delicate surface materials. To minimize downtime tube can be loaded even when the machine is in operation.
BLM GROUP is a global leader in tube processing solutions. Its product line includes laser cutting, cold sawing, bending, end-forming, and tube measurement equipment, as well as wire bending machines. With more than 50 years of tube experience, the BLM GROUP has thousands of applications worldwide.
