FABTECH 2012: Tube Processing Technology
Exhibit highlights include the LT Fiber Laser and Elect XL Tube Benders, along with EM80 end forming machining center, LT Jumbo Laser, and cold saw equipment. The 2-kW LT Fiber Laser processes highly reflective materials such as brass, copper and aluminum, as well as galvanized steel and thin-walled tubes. It can handle tube to 6” (152-mm) diameter with maximum raw tube lengths of 256 to 335” (6.5–8.5 m). The LT Jumbo series automatic laser tube-cutting system is designed for cutting large diameter, thick-walled tubes. The new EM80 is an integrated CNC end machining center to cut, chamfer, face, bore, thread, and profile tube. The Elect XL all-electric 12-axis tube bending machine can handle large diameter tube to 150 mm for applications in the automotive, machinery, motorcycle, hydraulic, railway, and shipyard industries.
