At the booth A36/B36, BLM Group will present a selection of tube and sheet fabricating systems synchronised by dedicated software applications.

On display will be the LS5 sheet metal processing system, offering automated loading and unloading, an autofocus head, and automatic nozzle changing. The modular system is configurable with transversal and longitudinal pallet changing to handle different sheet metal formats. For expanded capability, it can also be integrated with an automatic tube manufacturing system.


At Tube & Wire 2018 in Düsseldorf, Germany, on 16-20 April, BLM Group will be showcasing the LT7 for the first time, the most recent addition to its Lasertube family of tube cutting machines
