Tube and sheet metal, only one laser cutting system.


Two machines in one

One laser source and a single cutting head for two complementary processes, each with performance equal to
that of a dedicated system. LC5 is the answer when a small footprint is the key or if production 
do not justify two separate systems.

And as work volumes increase, you can add automated material handling 
systems, such as pallet
changers or storage towers.

Ergonomic: made to be used 

Large doors on the sheet side for convenient access to the entire pallet area and the same on the tube side to load a single bar on the fly and quickly adjust section changes.
Maximum control 
at all times thanks to access on sheet side and tube side. 

Convenient access to the tube working line
Automatic nozzle change device

Perfect nozzles? With LC5 it
becomes automatic.

Work in unmanned mode without worrying about qualityThe machine changes the nozzle, keeps it clean, and checks wear, all automatically.

LC5 Applications

Water-assisted cutting on thick steel
Teeth-shaped cuts between stainless steel square tubes
Laser-cut thick steel grid with water-assisted nozzles
Parametric laser-cut window and door frame
Burn-free laser cutting even on sharp edges and serrated geometries
Cosmetic joint on round tubes for furniture
Toothed wheel made from very thick laser-cut sheet

Choose the safety for your job

You have the certainty of being able to work at Zero Risks and at the highest safety standards: LC5 is a CE marked, Class 1 system. Special glass and a completely closed cutting area protect you from the risks of laser radiation. An independent safety system on the loader allows you to introduce a new tube bundle without interrupting production.

The gain in speed, accuracy and efficiency is maximum.

Artube: from drawing to part in one click. 

Drawing a part, or an entire assembly, and transforming it into a machine program takes only a few seconds. You can import 3D models of parts drawn using other CAD programs and send all the information to the machine to start production on the fly. 

With Artube, you can use the full potential of the Lasertube from the word go,
without errors.
