BLM GROUP USA introduced the LT-FREE ― a five-axis, fiber laser machine designed for cutting three dimensional formed or shaped parts, such as bent tubes, hydroformed tubes, welded assemblies and stamped or flat sheets. The part does not move during the cutting operation as the laser head’s freedom of movement guarantees the highest flexibility and accuracy to produce parts.
The LT-FREE can make cuts very close to each other for the ability to nestle parts on a single bent tube and then use the laser to separate, saving significant material cost.
Traditional cutting, drilling, punching and milling operations, normally carried out in sequence, can be performed on a single machine. This eliminates set up, reduces material handling, eliminates “work in progress” inventory and downsizes the space needed for storage.
LT-FREE is supplied with program software that can be used to create part programming of virtually any complexity in a simple, user friendly, 3-D graphical environment.
LT-FREE, with powers up to 5 kW, table dimensions of 59 in. x 39 in. and axis stroke to x= 116 in., y= 37 in. and z= 29 in., is ideal for machining mild steel, copper, aluminum, brass, stainless steel and galvanized steel. Learn more at www.blmgroup.com
