Freedom to… laser-cut three-dimensional parts
Five-axis laser machine for processing any 3D part
Bent tubes, hydroformed components, tubular assemblies or stamped parts. The LT-FREE five-axis laser cutting system is perfect for processing any three-dimensional part.
Copper, aluminium, brass, mild steel, stainless steel, galvanised… The system is equipped with a fiber laser to process any type of metal with maximum efficiency and excellent cut quality every time.
In the Highflex version the entire tube is processed in a single cycle: the robot is used to reposition the part as required. This avoids the need for additional fixtures or operations.
The innovative part positioning system is quick and easy to configure and avoids the needs to make a dedicated template for each part. This is a significant saving of both time and costs.
Laser cutting does not deform the part. The the cut is better and the results are more accurate and consistant. This is ideal for robotic welding. Laser is suitable for all thicknesses including thin walled tubes which are easily deformed during traditional operations.
Cutting, piercing, punching, milling, deburring: these operations are traditionally performed in sequence one after the other. The laser does them all together in a single automated operation.
Obtaining the finished part without creating ‘work in process invnetory’ is a huge advantage.
Production is simplified, material handling costs are cut and the floor space needed for storage is eliminated.
The extreme freedom of movement of the laser head and the use of automatic loading and unloading tables guarantees maximum system flexibility.
The independent double robot work station configuration allows loading and unloading in the background also while the laser continuously cuts.
Customize for your 24 hours a day production requirements utilizing automated loading and unloading.
Flexible configuration for processing bent or hydroformed tubes, flat or stamped sheets or welded assemblies. Uses dual part holding robots and double part loading tables for high throughput. Scrap is collcted separately from the parts.
For processing bent or hydroformed tubes and assemblies. There are two shuttle tables which automatically shift in and out of the laser work zone making it possible to load/unload and laser process parts at the same time. Processing alternates between the two tables so that production can run uninterrupted.
Piece Value configuration for processing large-size assemblies in large batch production. Piece Value has a dual station rotary work table which turns to enable loading and unloading while the laser is cutting.
For processing bent or hydroformed tubes and assemblies or flat sheet. The system offers two fixed worktables on which the work holding fixtures or tooling are mounted. Multiple parts can be fixtured for batch processing. Manual part loading and unloading take place after the laser cutting cycle has been completed.
Using LT-FREE is convenient and simple: operation can be continuously monitored via several internal cameras. Simply select your material type and thickness to automatically calculate all the cutting parameters and the optimal laser focus position.
The BLM GROUP software can be used to create part complex programs via easy to use 3D graphical simulations of the entire cell. Monitors for collisions and determinte the feasibility of the parts to be made.
