Two laser cutters in one

A single laser cutting head for two complementary processes, pipe and sheet metal, with performance equal to that of a dedicated machine.
LC5 is the answer when a small footprint is required or if the production load does not justify the use of two separate laser cutters for tubes and sheet metal.

Immediate change-over from tube to sheet metal

Change instantly from sheet to pipe without the need for additional set up or tooling. Use your time making production not making changeovers.

It’s the ideal way to maximize your return on investment.

The horizons broaden

Steel, stainless steel, iron, copper, brass, aluminium sheets, thin or thick materials - the best cut, always.

Make your first piece a masterpiece!

No need for experience with Active Speed. The LC5 will dynamically manage all the cutting parameters and extend the same robustness provided by the common laser cutting jobs to the most difficult conditions. Zero worries, quality assured!

Multitasking to the extreme

Laser-cutting thick materials with new power. Focus management creates geometries that were impossible until now with smooth, well-defined edges. The use of water makes nesting more compact. The use of air guarantees the lowest cost per part ever.

Automatic tube loading and unloading

A robust and reliable automatic bundle loader is the answer when production tube laser cutting is needed.

The LC5 loader extracts one bar at a time from the bundle and moves it to the machining line for cutting.

Electric sheet pallet changer

Automatic dual pallet sheet changer. 3000 x 1500, (10’ x 5’), 4000 x 2000, (13’ x 6.5’) 6000 x 2000, (20’ x 6.5’) sizes available.

There is also a manually loaded single shelf for limited production.

Choose the one which best suits your needs!

Electric sheet pallet changer

Ergonomics: made with the user in mind

Access the entire sheet working area via the large enclosure doors.
Load bundles of pipes from the loader or a single bar through the double front and rear openings. Quickly make the adjustments to change tube size or shapes.
The operator has maximum control of the entire process with the two operator panels; one on the sheet side and one on the tube side. Both are freely adjustable to let you work better!

Automatic nozzle change

Adjusts automatically for material and thickness changes.

Up to 18 working positions available.

Vision system checks to verify the nozzle change.

Simple and easy: exactly what you need!

The advantages of fiber laser:
More efficiency and less power consumption

The increased electrical efficiency of fiber laser technology drastically slashes the electrical consumption of the system which means a monthly savings on your utility bills and a reduction in the initial investment in electrical equipment and services.

Superior performance on thin walled materials

The faster speed of nitrogen fiber laser cutting on thin walled more than doubles machine productivity compared to CO2: mild steel and stainless steel up to 8 mm (.3125”) thick are the materials that typically benefit the most from fiber laser technology.

No laser maintenance needed

The fiber laser does not require routine maintenance or rebuilding procedures. No laser gas is needed. Laser beam quality is stable over time and is available immediately upon start up.

New materials and new opportunities

Copper and brass, materials which were off-limits with CO2 technology can be easily cut with fiber laser. Even tricky to cut aluminium and galvanised steels have no limits. Fiber technology offers new opportunities and a more robust production method for difficult materials.

Artube: from the drawing to the part in one click

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

With Artube you can exploit all the Lasertube’s potential from the go, without errors.

A laser cutting machine that grows with your needs

LC5 integrates two systems in an optimal manner: one for sheet laser cutting and one for tube processing. Start with the sheet laser cutting system, and as your business grows, add the lasertube module. The installation is seamless - no rewiring or major mechanical operations needed. Add automatic sheet loading and unloading or a storage tower for automated material type and thickness changeovers. LC5 is one of the markets’ most complete solutions. This gives you a way to reduce the initial investment and yet gives you the option to add capabilities in the future as your production requirements evolve.

Fast cutting of grates with different geometries

Thanks to a new function on the LC5 and LS5 machines called "FLYCUT", the time required to process cutting grates has been halved. Previously the machine had to stop for every element. Now the process has been optimized to maintain the highest possible cutting speed. The net result is an increase in productivity and a significant reduction in part cost, all while maintaining product quality.
