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.

LT7 is not only faster than other systems, it expresses excellence from all points of view – working field, productivity, quality and accuracy, flexibility and automatism, ease of use and integration.

Extreme flexibility of the loading and unloading solutions, a 3D head, active tools and care for details are only some of the aspects offered by the LT7. Everything is aimed at guaranteeing quality and performance across the entire dimensional field of the system, with no compromises.

LT7 is the successful blend of hardware and software solutions and the result of years of experience and investments tailored to make laser-cutting tubes easy.
