LT JUMBO: complex, innovative structural elements
Advantages for machining thick tubes for structural applications.
In this example, an appropriately coupled round profile and a perforated plate have been used to create a functional, modular part.
In particular, side jobs were carried out on the round profile using the 3D cutting head leaving room for welding to minimise surface preparation works.
The flat interconnection parts were obtained directly from a flat section instead of by flat cutting on the LT JUMBO itself.
This saves material because less scrap is generated than with typical flat cutting processes. The overall cutting path is shorter by exploiting the two sides of the flat section appropriately prepared to the right width.
