LME Tube combines the advantages of an LME system for the cutting of flat sheet metal with the new laser technology applied to cutting tubular elements for the new FIBER Tube, which make it an actual machine for the processing of tubular elements.
The transition from flat to tubular machining takes place automatically and the cutting process uses the same EVO 3 cutting head, designed and developed internally by Cutlite Penta, and also provides for the possibility of Bevel cutting on the tube. LME Tube represents the best quality-price choice on the market and guarantees superior flexibility of use with high cutting performance, while maintaining a high quality standard
The base is an electro-welded steel frame which is then machined to accommodate the absolute high-precision guides and linear motors.
The Gantry frame is made of a light, sturdy steel beam that is stiff enough to compensate for thermal expansion with no deformation. This type of configuration provides remarkable dynamic performance.
The work surface area is divided into modular sections each approximately 500 mm long, which direct the offcuts to the corresponding collection systems located beneath the frame. Each section is equipped with two suction inlets (these are switched automatically depending on the cutting path).
The work surface consists of a replaceable support grille. The same laser machine can also be used to produce the grille using a pre-installed program in the numerical control. The work grille is adaptable and can be spaced as required for improved processing material handling.
Fiber laser sources of up to 15000 W provide extensive versatility and make it possible to cut a multiplicity of metal types. Developed as a single system, it can be paired with a wide variety of optical fiber diameters.
High efficiency, excellent beam quality and low power consumption are all hallmarks of the source. The source is housed in a NEMA 12 cabinet which is conditioned and sealed so that it can operate even in the harshest of environments. The high degree of reliability of these sources also ensures particularly low maintenance costs.
