LC5
LC5 is the ideal solution for laser cutting both sheet and tubes in all situations in which installing two separate systems is hardly justifiable due to reasons of dimensions, production volumes or more simply cost-effectiveness.

A single laser source and a single cutting head is capable of switching from sheet to tube processing (and vice versa) immediately, automatically and without needing re-tooling.

LC5 can process metal sheet up to 3000x1500 (or 4000x2000) and round, square, rectangular, oval shaped tubes up to an inscribed diameter of 120 mm and a bar weight of up to 13.5 kg/m.

LC5 can be equipped with either a CO2 laser source with a power of up to 4.5 kW or a fiber laser source with power up to 3 kW. The fiber source is advantageous for cutting high reflecting materials (brass, copper) and for more effective aluminium processing.The cutting process is controlled by sensors which monitor all the main parameters on both the CO2 source and fiber versions. The optimal cutting parameters are selected in fully automatic manner according to the material and thickness. Focus is regulated by a servo mechanism fitted inside the cutting head.

ADVANTAGES:
• tube sheet immediate switch
• automatic tube bundle loader
• automatic unloading
• scrap separation
• BLM GROUP 3D graphic CAD/CAM: Artube
• tidy collection solutions

LT-FREE
The LT-FREE five-axis laser cutting system is ideal for three-dimensional parts, bent, hydroformed or pre-assembled tubes or flat and pressed sheets.
Traditional cutting, drilling, piercing, milling and deburring operations, which are normally carried out in sequence, can now be performed on a single machine in a single cycle.
This makes finished parts without 'work in progress' inventory, consequently reducing material handling costs and streamlining the entire production process - as well as downsizing the space needed for storage.
The system is equipped with a fibre laser capable of processing any type of metallic components (mild steel, copper, aluminum, brass, stainless steel, galvanized steel, etc.) at high speed with excellent quality.

Possible jobs:
• trimming and piercing on bends
• high quality and accurate cuts, ideal for welding by robots during a later assembly stage
• finishing of hydroformed parts
• piercing anywhere on bent tubes
• preformed sheet trimming
• processing of preassembled frames

LT14 / LT24
The lasertube LT14 - LT24 system is an automatic laser tube cutting machine that implements on grand-scale the experience, the quality and the effective solutions that are already consolidated in all the mix of our Lasertube machines.

The available versions are:
LT 14 for the processing of tubes up to 355 mm of diameter (min. Ø 25,4 mm) and with a maximum weight of 100 kg/m.
LT 24 able to machine tubes up to 610 mm of diameter (min Ø 50 mm) and with a maximum weight of 300 kg/m.

The LT14/LT24 can be used to cut tubes (round, square and rectangular), open profiles, H-beams or IPE, special profiles.

The loading unit (std. tube length of 12,5mt - Option up to 18 mt. on LT 24) is able to handle the singling, the measurement and the tubes movement of different shape and dimension on the work line, in series.

Tube handling and management system from the loading line to the machining area, comprising units and CNC axes for handling, turning and supporting the tube to be machined. Handling speed is variable and automatically selected according to tube weight.
After being fed into the loader, the tubes are singled out and arranged by a set of conveyors into the cutting line one at a time.

The tube is clamped by the rear carriage at this time and released at the end of the machining operations.
The carriage moves the tube along the track and supplies two working spindles.

The carriage and the spindles shift and rotate the tube along the track, specifically in the working area, so that the 5-axis unit can processes all parts - before, between and after the spindles.

The programming and the movement of the most important modules of the LT14 - LT24 take place through the operator console, on which it is displayed a scheme of the all devices conditions.
A technological database allows a high-quality laser cutting up to thicknesses of 16 mm.

The ability to efficiently accurately and consistently create any cut geometry in tube or pipe means that the Lasertube LT14 - LT24 it's a revolution in tube fabrication in different fields;
Agricultural equipment, heavy construction equipement, ship building, oil industry, mining and conveying, crane lifts.

LT14 FIBER
A cutting kinematics completely different from other laser tube machines; this is the most important feature of the LT14 FIBER.
During the cutting process, it is not the tube to be moved but the cutting head thanks to 5 axis controlled by CN, one of which with a range exceeding 6.5 m along the axis of the tube.
• Production takes place faster, because it's not always necessary to shift the tube but only the cutting head, much lighter and more responsive.
• The overall geometric accuracy is also higher because the tube is positioned at the beginning of the program and moved no more but at the time of unloading.

The plant is equipped with a fiber laser source 3 kW (4 kW in option) and a new 3D cutting head specifically developed by BLM GROUP: with 3D cutting, joints between tubes of large thickness are more accurate and chamfers and bevels can be created that simplify the subsequent welding operations.

The machine is able to load, cut and unload automatically tubes and parts up to 355 mm in diameter, open and special profiles (IPE included) without requiring retooling or mechanical manual operations.

4-RUNNER
4-RUNNER is a complete production process starting from a coil: straightening, end-forming (up to six passes), facing, rolling, bending, cutting and controlled unloading of the finished part all in one.
The unquestionable advantage of this combined machining centre is that it can be configured and used with various modules for specific jobs or complete processes from straightening to unloading the finished parts entirely cut, bent and formed.
On bending side, the 4-RUNNER allows to make fixed and variable radius arrangements on the plane and in space, which can be integrated according to design development in automatic sequences without bending problems: all-in-one process, without reworks.
The possibility of combining multiple radius bending or stretching technologies on the same part guarantees the best flexibility and the highest production rates.
On end-forming side, the machine may be configured with four or six push passes or four push and one revolving pass.
Different cutting devices are used according to applications: inner orbital cutter, outer orbital cutter, disc cutter.
Extreme versatility like this means:
• top flexibility for jobs and applications
• top efficiency and low investments costs with integrated processes and the possibility of implementing just-in-time methods
• 3D visual graphic programming (VGP3D) makes using the machine extremely easy, comfortable and safe.
The 4-RUNNER bending centre is particularly suited to machining small and medium size tubes even of very complex shapes typically used in automotive, air conditioning, heating or cooling system applications.
