AUTOMATIC SAWING, END MACHINING OF TUBES AND BARS
This new integrated CNC end machining center from BLM Group ideal for tube processing in order to cut, chamfer, face, bore, thread and profile.
BLM Group USA (Wixom, MI), a global leader in the manufacture of tube processing equipment, will showcase its latest technology – a combined automatic sawing and end machining center for tube and bar processing – in Booth E-4694 for the first time at IMTS 2012.
The new technology, designated EM80, is an integrated CNC end machining center ideal for tube processing in order to cut, chamfer, face, bore, thread and profile. The machine operates in several stages or stations. The first cuts the tube or bar to length, the second for turning operations such as roughing and finishing and the third stage for boring, tapping or measuring with part washing between. The unit comes with a bundle loader to handle up to 4,000 kg and can be loaded at any time during the operation. A ‘conveyor’ brings the parts toward a two position chute to allow the parts to be dropped in to the appropriate bin. The conveyor also handles chip removal.
The EM80 handles tube diameters from 10 mm to 80 mm and with wall thickness from 0.8 mm to 12 mm and solid bar from 10 mm to 60 mm. Bar stock lengths from 2500 mm to 120,000 mm. The blade cutting speed travels at 20 m/min to 450 m/min.
In addition to the EM80, BLM GROUP recently introduced the LT FIBER Laser Tube machine, the first automated laser tube cutting machine to utilize a fiber resonator.

The system can process highly reflective materials such as brass, copper and aluminum and is also 30 percent faster in processing mild steel tubing. www.blmgroup.com
