Tube and sheet metal cutting solutions provider BLM Group USA (Novi, MI) will host its biennial INTUBE Open House at its new 75,000-sq-ft. facility on May 8-17, 2018. During the event, the company will showcase a wide range of innovative metal fabrication solutions for laser tube and flat sheet cutting, tube and wire bending, endforming, end-machining, and cold sawing.
The theme of the INTUBE Open House is "Future is Calling," which reflects the company's forward-thinking focus on the concepts of Industry 4.0—greater efficiencies and leaner processes to help customers build their business.
The latest LT7 laser tube solution will be introduced for the first time in North America. Using over 25 years of experience in laser tube development, BLM Group designed the system to increase productivity and improve accuracy through innovations in tube management and fixturing.
Visitors will see practical examples of automation of laser tube and bender loading and unloading. These automation cell demonstrations occur between BLM Group machines and secondary operations, and will show how simple integrations can radically improve productivity and reduce labor costs.
Each attendee's visit to INTUBE 2018 will be personalized according to their individual schedules and technology interests. In addition to providing a custom technology experience, BLM Group will offer meals and assist with overnight accommodations during the event.
