Available from BLM Group USA (Novi, MI), the LS5 and LC5 flat sheet laser cutters can cut steel, stainless steel, iron, copper, brass, and aluminum sheets in thicknesses from 0.039″ to 1.37″. They can also cut double sheets, depending upon the material.
Users can specify the power level, 2 kW – 10 kW, best suited for their needs. With simultaneous axis speed up to 196 m/min, with swift acceleration, and with rigid mechanical structures, the systems deliver excellent cutting performance and accuracy.
The LS5 and LC5 have available bed sizes of 10′ × 5′, 13′ × 6.5′, and 20′ × 6.5′, all equipped with dual shelves and automatic loading/unloading and changeover. Depending upon floor space and production flow requirements, users can choose either a longitudinal configuration or a transversal one.
The LC5 can also accommodate a tube processing module with the sheet and tube functioning autonomously, just sharing the cutting head. The tube processing module, capable of working with tubes up to 120 mm, has its own operator panel, which controls the entire system during tube processing. Two panels mean simple management from the system point of view and fast change over from one job to the other.
BLM Group provides machines for tube and sheet metal fabrication. The machines’ processes include laser tube and flat sheet cutting, cold sawing, bending, end-forming, end-machining, and wire bending.
