BLM Group USA to Feature 3-Dimensional Tube Cutting Machine at Fabtech 2014

LT8 provides flexibility and operator ease for tube cutting to 8 inch diameter

BLM GROUP USA, Wixom, MI, (, a global leader in the manufacture of tube processing solutions will display its wide range of equipment in booth C922 at FABTECH 2014, November 11-13, 2014 in Atlanta. The company will feature its LT8 machine and an array of other tube fabricating equipment in the exhibit.

The LT8 is a three dimensional laser tube cutting machine that provides the flexibility and ease of use. It provides extremely precise laser cutting, on tube diameters from 12 to 220 mm (0.5 to 8.8 in.) and bar weight up to 35 Kg/m (77 lb/39 in.). The unit is equipped with a rotating head that provides for three dimensional, five axis cutting and features an automatic loading system combined with a unique unload, increasing the productivity of most operations. Complex processing such as cutting different pieces on the same bar or batch changing among bars is managed automatically.

Information will also be available on the LT5, an entry level automated laser tube cutting system designed to handle small and medium-sized tubes, the all new 4Runner tube bender designed specifically for HVAC applications, the ELECT all electric tube bender, the ETurn right hand, left hand all electric tube bending machine along with the LT JUMBO laser tube cutting series.

Thanks to the versatility of its advanced 1kW IPG fiber laser, the new LT5 can efficiently process mild steel as well as highly reflective materials such as aluminum, copper, and brass. The system’s fiber laser provides a dramatic improvement in energy efficiency when compared to the more traditional CO2 laser, leading to as much as a 50% reduction in hourly operating costs.

The ELECT all-electric 12-axis tube bending machine provides productivity, flexibility and accuracy to bending of large diameter (up to 150 mm/6 in.) tube, making it the ideal choice for many demanding operations. The LT JUMBO Series, is an automatic laser tube cutting system designed to bring higher levels of precision to large diameter, thick walled tubes.

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 and thousands of applications, the BLM GROUP is a leader in the manufacture of tube fabrication equipment.
