BLM GROUP USA has announced the availability of its new LT7F2 lasertube featuring a 2D cutting head, well-suited for fabricators processing round tubes, square, rectangle, and open profiles or special sections requiring straight vertical-type cutting. This machine offers the benefits of the company’s versatile LT7, with 3D cutting head, at a value price point. The LT7F2 is capable of handling tubes from 0.5” to 6”, and up to 15.4 lbs./ft., and is available with either a 3 kW or 4kW fiber laser.
Similar to the original LT7, the LT7F2 features automated changeover for maximum productivity. At the end of each batch, the loader, spindle, steady rest and intermediate supports automatically adapt to the new section to be cut without any interruption of the production cycle.
Additionally, the LT7F2 offers flexible loading options that can be optimized according to your production needs. Special and or/open profiles, short or long parts can be unloaded front or back while scrap is automatically managed. Users can pause the workflow to produce small batches, loading one or a few bars on the fly. Additionally, robotic loaders or automated storage systems can be integrated with the lasertube for continuous flow production.
As with all BLM lasertube systems, the LT7F2 comes with BLM GROUP’s user-friendly software interface and Active Tools, which are patented solutions that automatically adapt process parameters for optimal results independent of operator experience.
