In order to get the best from your Lasertube, you need the best
software solution on the market.
Therefore we have developed Artube, the only integrated environment CAD/CAM , purpose-designed for the complex laser cutting of tubes, sections, open profiles etc. of all shapes and sizes.
To be guided by Artube gives you control of the whole process, from the imagined to the realization of the final component, according to parameters automatically selected by the software on "best-practice" criteria or chosen by yourself, should you so wish.
Choose the section to be worked from the predefined library, or if it's a non-standard section you can draw it yourself and add it to the library.
Define intuitively the required cut features, again selecting from a predefined library, then allow Artube to select the fastest and most practical parameters and route to produce the component.
If the components are already drawn in another CAD environment, you simply import the 3D file models (IGES, STEP, XT) and go directly to the creation of machine programs (CAM), without any further drawing.
During each programming stage, the component is graphically visualized in a realistic way, displaying a 3D image with the step by step program changes giving an immediate the depiction of the component.
You do not need specific knowledge to use Artube, it is very easy to learn and use.
The modular structure of Artube allows it's users to add
additional modules to the initial basic module if and when their
work demands it.
For instance there is cut-and-fold module which automatically defines the joints and coupling process to produce a tubular frame out of a single piece of tube.
Numerous other modules have been developed, and continue to be developed, to meet specific market needs and/or simplify the management of the most complex processes.
Artube is an integral part of the BLM GROUP laser products.
It is the result of a continuous evolution, thanks to the hundreds of installations in different application sectors and thousands of invaluable suggestions coming from our Customers.
It allows the user to create whatever possible form from a tube or a profile through the laser-working of our machines (thing that can seem expectable) but, what is more important, it is thought in order to do it in the way in which one expects that it owes.
Artube is not only an essential instrument. It is also an efficient instrument.
