New Lt-Free five-axis laser cutting system from Blm Group

Blm Group-lt-freeBlm Group has developed Lt-Free five-axis laser cutting system which ensures top-notch flexibility and simplicity of use for cutting 3D parts in different shapes. Curved tubes, flat and drawn sheets, hydroformed components or welded assemblies can pierced and trimmed easily and accurately.

lt-free-blmStarting with simple, effective off-line programming, the Lt-Free makes completely finished parts in one step, thus eliminating extra material handlings costs, work in process inventory and the related floor space requirements. Lt-Free is a cost effective, lean process improvement.

The Lt-Free is created for a wide range of different applications, from prototyping to final production, in the automotive, aerospace, motorcycle, household appliance, Hvac, furniture and light construction industries or wherever tubes and tubular assemblies are processed.

Four different system configurations are available to satisfy all application needs. Entry Level is the configuration dedicated to prototyping or job shops wtih low production volumes. The system is equipped with a single table onto which the parts to be processed are placed in a fixture. This configuration is ideal when job quality and simplicity are more important than production cycle time.Blm Group

Mid-Flex is the configuration created for shops where small parts are processed and faster cycle times are required. Two shuttle tables work in split stations allowing optimised cycle times and carry out loading and unloading operations in the background.

Piece Value is the system for volume production, particularly for the automotive industry. Equipped with a rotary table, it is ideal for applications requiring high productivity and infrequent tool changes.

High Flex is the most complete configuration. It is versatile and high-performing with two independent, robotised tables for maximum flexibility. In addition to sheets and mechanical assemblies, the system can process bent and hydroformed tubes accurately and efficiently. The parts are held in position by the robots during processing with no need for complex fixturing.

The use of 1 or 2 kW fibre lasers (higher power, up to 5 kW, is available as required) allows the Lt-Free to cut a very wide range of materials in an energy-efficient manner with low maintenance costs.
