4 Axis Laser Tube Cutting machines are designed to cut multiple holes on tubes of different sections, in a fully programmed automatic cycle. This process eliminates all traditional sawing, deburring, drilling, lining-up and removal operations carried out on conventional machines. Our tube laser cutting machines can produce extremely accurate and complex laser cuts for a wide range of tubing shapes, such as:
4 Axis Laser Tube Cutting Benefits
M & K Metal’s 4 axis laser tube cutting machine can produce intricate and precise features on tubes of all shapes and sizes. Laser tube cutting is a cost-effective process that produces intricate parts with small tolerances in medium to high volume production runs. It is also a fast and low-cost process for prototypes or one-off parts due to the quality of the cut and the lack of finishing operations needed. The additional benefits that 4 axis laser tube cutting, includes:
- Reduces subsequent manufacturing steps
- Produces superior edge quality
- Saves time and money
- Consistent, high quality production
Laser Tube Cutting Capabilities
M & K Metal’s 4 axis laser cutting machine provides the capability to produce complex, accurate features within a single machine, which helps to reduce secondary operations and allows for precision fit of weldments and assembled components. Other capabilities, include:
- Creating cut-features or complex geometry on tubes such as profiles, copes, and slots.
- Can perform high-speed cutting without additional requirement for hard tools.
- The 4 axis laser tube cutting technique eliminates the need for saws, drills, nibblers, milling machines, and hand-held plasma torches, by combining these various processes in a single operation.
