Cost Effective Laser Cutting Solutions

Madera, California, USA.  

World class manufacturer and distributor of CNC tube bending machinery, Horn Machine Tools, Inc. now offers both flat sheet and tube laser cutting machines. The machines utilize highly efficient fiber laser technology and are configured in four different models which can be customized to fit customer’s requirements. 

The lasers feature high quality components found on many of the other more expensive machines on the market. The fiber laser power source is from IPG Photonics, the laser cutting head is from Precitec, the servo motor system is from Yaskawa and the control system is from Power Automation. The machines utilize Lantek software to facilitate programming and nesting functions. All the major components on the machines have worldwide support and are readily available.

According to company president Kent Horn, “The market has been seeking a lower cost solution for laser cutting for some time now. Until recently this valuable manufacturing process has been out of reach for many fabricators because they can’t justify the high cost.  We can now provide both a high quality CNC tube bender and laser cutter, for much less than the laser would cost from other sources”.

HMT will be exhibiting an automatic style tube laser at Fabtech Expo November 16th – 18th in Las Vegas, NV along with two all electric CNC tube benders. They cordially invite show attendees to stop by and view how they are innovating laser tube cutting and bending technologies.

The high production fully automatic tube laser model FLTA which will be showcased at the Fabtech Expo, loads the tube into the cutting area and processes the cut parts without assistance from the operator. There is also a semi-automatic machine for entry level buyers which have all the same cutting capability except the operator provides minimal assistance to position the tube into the tube chuck. Both machines have an unloading table to handle the cut tubes being discharged from the machine.

The flat sheet cutters are configured in two formats, the model FLSA is a conventional 5’ x 10’ flat sheet laser cutter with a double exchange sheet handling system. The model FLTS is a combination machine which combines a 5’ x 10’ flat sheet cutter along with a tube spindle for processing tubular shapes. The combination machine is an excellent choice for fabricators with both flat sheet and tube cutting requirements that don’t have the volume to justify buying two separate machines.
