Tube and Sheet Metal Fabricating Solutions

The LC5 tube and flat sheet fabricating machine will be featured in the BLM GROUP USA booth N6300 at FABTECH 2016.

BLM GROUP USA will demonstrate the LC5 tube and sheet fabricating machine, the LT-FREE fiber laser tube cutting machine for cutting 3-D parts, as well as the E-TURN and 4-RUNNER tube bending machines.

LC5 is a compact laser machine that can be equipped with either a CO2 laser source with a power up to 4.5 kW or a fiber laser source with a power up to 5 kW. It features automatic loading and unloading and can process both tube and flat sheet in a single machine. The LC5 can handle tube up to 334" in length and 4.75" in diameter. The processing of sheet metal is fully automatic and allows for sheet up to 78" x 236". The fiber laser is designed for cutting both mild steel and highly reflective materials such as stainless steel and aluminum.

The LT-FREE is a 5-axis fiber laser system that can cut 3-D formed or shaped parts such as bent tubes, hydroformed tubes, welded assemblies and stamped or flat sheets. The LT-FREE, with powers up to 3 kW, table dimensions of 59" x 39" and axis stroke to 116"/37"/29" XYZ, is designed for cutting mild steel, copper, aluminum, brass, stainless steel and galvanized steel.

The E-TURN 32 tube bender can handle tube up to 1.18" diameter and will be equipped with a Kawasaki robotic arm. This all-electric tube bender can bend a variety of tube configurations including round, square, rectangular, flat-sided, oval and elliptical. Tube can be automatically loaded, bent and unloaded all in one machine.

The 4-RUNNER tube bender and end-forming machine can be configured as a dedicated tube bender for a specific production application or a complete process that includes straightening from coil, bending, end-forming and cut off. With a footprint of 13.08' x 7.17' x 6.17', the 4-RUNNER is designed for machining small to medium sized tubes and can bend tube to 0.875" diameter with accuracy to ± 0.05" on the linear axis and ±0.05° on the rotational axis. The unit comes standard with 2.76" maximum bending radius, and an "increase bend radius" option is available.
