BLM ups power of sheet laser cutters

BLM Group USA has added more processing power to its LS5 and LC5 flat sheet laser cutters, with the new option of a 12kW fiber laser source.

These machines can cut steel, stainless steel, iron, copper, brass, and aluminum sheets in thicknesses from 1 to 34.7mm, depending upon the material, according to BLM. Users can specify the power level, from 2kW–12kW, that is best suited for their needs.

With simultaneous axis speed up to 196m/min and swift acceleration paired with a rigid mechanical structure, these systems deliver excellent cutting performance and accuracy.

The LC5 can also accommodate a tube processing module with the sheet and tube functioning autonomously, just sharing the cutting head. The tube processing module, capable of working with tubes up to 120mm, has its own operator panel, which controls the entire system during tube processing. Two panels mean very simple management from the system point of view and extremely fast change over from one job to the other.
