LC5 – Tube and sheet laser cutting in a single system

One choice, twice the opportunity

Tube and sheet laser cutting in a single system

LC5: for cutting tube and sheet on the same machine. The most unique solution in the marketplace

process tubes up to ∅ 120 mm (4.75”)

automatic bundle loading up to 6.5 m (21’) 3000 x 1500, (10’ x 5’) 4000 x 2000, (13’ x 6.5’) 6000 x 2000 (20’ x 6.5’)

sheet size in-line or transverse pallet change

fiber laser source up to 5 kW

machinable materials: mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, brass, galvanized

Two machines in one

One laser and a cutting head for two complementary jobs, tube and sheet, each with performance equal to that of a dedicated system.

LC5 is the answer when a small footprint is required or if the production load does not justify the use of two separate systems.

Immediate change-over from tube to sheet

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

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

Automatic tube loading and unloading

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

The LC5 bundle loader extracts one bar at a time from the bundle 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!

Ergonomics: made with the user in mind

Access the entire sheet working area via the large enclosure doors.

Load bundles of tubes 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!

Ergonomia: fatta per essere usata

Dual touch screen operator panels.

Tubo e lamiera sempre in primo piano

Loading a single bar is easy. Just load from overhead.

Tubo e lamiera sempre in primo piano

The panel on sheet side can shift along the length of the entire machine.

Gli sfridi della lamiera sono accumulati in cassetti facilmente estraibili.

The cutting scrap is accumulated in easy to empty scrap boxes.

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 word go, without errors

A system that grows with your needs

LC5 integrates two systems in an optimal manner: one for the sheet cutting and one for tube processing. If you wish, you can choose to purchase just one and then add the second operation at a later time. Complete the installation without rewiring or major mechanical operations. 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 change.

Fast cutting of grates with different geometries

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