BLM Group USA adds 2 kW fiber laser option to laser cutting machine

July 18, 2019
The LT5 Lasertube laser cutting machine is now available with 2 kW fiber laser capability for faster processing speeds.

The LT5 Lasertube laser cutting machine from BLM Group USA (Novi, MI) is now available with 2 kW fiber laser capability for faster processing speeds. The automated laser tube cutter is suitable for small- to medium-sized round tube applications up to 120 mm in diameter and can process mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, and galvanized materials. The machine is capable of producing complex end cuts and features in tubes or used as a laser sawing machine to produce straight cuts, reducing material waste given its narrow cut width (kerf) of only a few tenths of a millimeter.

The system is designed for continuous production of small-diameter and thin wall tubes featuring automated tube handling from bar loader to piece unloader. It also offers the ability to send different parts to multiple unloading positions: front, rear, and onto a specific metal belted conveyor designed for short parts. This eliminates the need to separate the parts discharged to a single container by hand, and speeds up the collection of completed parts. 

The machine can also cut square tube stock up to 100 mm in diameter as well as rectangles, ovals, and elliptical semi-flat/full up to 120 × 70 mm.
