Blm Group USA Introduces the LT8.10, a Fully Automated Three Dimensional Fiber Laser Tube Cutting System
The system is the next step forward in the company’s development of laser tube technology and provides excellent performance and flexibility for up to 9.5 in. diameter tube cutting
Wixom, MI—BLM GROUP USA (www.blmgroup.com), a global leader in the manufacture of equipment for tube processing solutions, has announced the introduction of the Model LT8.10 fiber laser tube cutting system.
The LT8.10 is a three dimensional, 3 kW fiber laser tube cutting machine that provides excellent flexibility and user-friendliness for extremely precise laser cutting on a variety of materials for tube diameters up to 9.5 in. The system is also ideal for cutting highly reflective materials such as brass, copper and aluminum and can process round, square, rectangle, flat oval and D-shaped tubes, as well as open profiles such as C and U shaped channel bar.
The unit is equipped with the new ‘Tube Cutter’ 3D cutting head developed exclusively by BLM GROUP, which is more compact and lightweight, making it ideal for a variety of tube cutting applications including tilt cutting of thick-walled steel. It is capable of making tilt cuts with greater accuracy and quality in tubes and in open profiles and contours. The LT8.10 is available in multiple load and unload configurations including an automatic bundle loader, automatic step loader and/or a manual single bar loader. Complex operations such as nesting multiple part numbers on the same bar and changing to different profiles, are managed automatically.
The LT8.10 incorporates a variety of advanced functions including Active
Marking for part marking and tracking; Active Piercing to increase piercing speed for productivity; Active Scan to deal with material variation; Active Speed to sustain quality across all cutting conditions and Active Focus, a technology that adjusts beam focal position. Each function is instrumental in the productivity and ease-of-use of the machine.
The LT8.10 takes full advantage of the BLM GROUP’s proprietary suite of tube processing software entitled BLMelements. BLMelements is a set of tools for designing parts, estimating production times, creating part programs, planning production and if need be, integrating with other BLM GROUP machines. The software allows remote machine monitoring, collecting operating statistics and receives real-time notifications of events that may require attention.
BLM GROUP is a global leader in tube processing solutions. Its product line includes laser cutting, cold sawing, bending, end-machining and wire bending machines. With more than 50 years of tube experience and thousands of applications, BLM GROUP is a leader in the manufacture of tube fabrication equipment.
