The LT8 combines the utmost flexibility and excellent performance in a single system. The vast dimensional range of tubes that can be worked (from 12 to 225 mm O.D. and up to 8,5m in length) makes it possible to cover a wide spectrum of services. At the same time, the performances that can be achieved are currently unmatched even on small size tubes.
The LT8 programming software has been designed using innovative criteria. Working cycles have been optimised to achieve excellent performance and an "intelligent" on-board operator user-friendly interface guides the operator.
Unloading from a lasertube system is a delicate phase, which LT8 handles extremely well thanks to various options that consider the variability of tube sizes and geometry to be processed. A special centring feature allows superior consistency on long pieces while a separate conveyor belt guarantees maximum productivity.
With the increase in size and thickness of tubes that can be processed, the need for a 3D cutting head often becomes an indispensable tool to fully meet the user's requirements. The LT8 is equipped with a fast moving "3D" head, which is extremely effective and precise in cutting a considerable thickness.
The idea was to provide the LT8 with several distinct loading stations - front and rear. They allow to follow the need of the operator either by interrupting a bulky production temporarily so that a small number of tubes can be cut urgently or so that a production batch can be prepared while the previous one is still being processed.
