BLM Lasertube LT12: Cut for the future

BLM Group’s new Lasertube LT12 is a fibre laser cutting system for tubes and metal profiles that is capable of cutting tubes from 25 to 305 mm in diameter, representing an offer which was previously missing from the company’s machine portfolio.

It is possible to equip the LT12 with laser resonators of different power, with the machine capable of processing tubes up to 62 kg/m. The structure comprises of a mandrel at the tail and a steady rest that supports the tube in cut. Among the innovations here is‘interpenetration’, where the mandrel enters the steady rest to cut the end of the bar and thereby achieve minimal waste.

As with all BLM’s Lasertube machines, the tube is supported throughout the processing line, providing precise and fast laser cutting on both small diameter tubes and long, heavy tubes, maintaining this speed and precision over the entire range of diameters.The flexible system caters to multiple sectors, but is of particular interest to industries where it is common to find open and closed profiles up to 305 mm in diameter.

The new Lasertube system is modular in both loading and unloading lengths. In fact, two sizes for loading (8.5 and 12.5 m) and several sizes for unloading are available. The possibility of loading bar lengths up to 12.5 m was made to elevate processing through nesting, which optimally arranges each cut on the bar, so as to make the most of the material while minimising unused bar sections.
