Wixom, MI - BLM Group USA has introduced its LT8 three-dimensional (3D) CO2laser tube cutting system, which cuts tube diameters up to 8.625 in. and a bar weight up to 1000 lb.

The system, equipped with a tilting, ±45° head, provides 3D five-axis cutting and ultra-high-speed piercing, allowing for complex cutting on most tube profiles. It includes the company's Active Focus technology to adjust beam focal position, reduce pierce times up to 30 percent, and improve tilt cutting speed. It also offers 40 ft. automatic loading capabilities and clean tube technology for processing of stainless steel. Complex operations such as nesting multiple part numbers on the same bar and changing to different profiles are managed automatically.

The LT8 is available in multiple load and unload configurations, including an automatic bundle loader (capacity 8800 lb.), automatic step loader, and/or a manual single-bar loader. It is ideal for large and/or thick tubes requiring a high degree of accuracy.
