TUBE LASER CUTTING
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE TUBE LASER CUTTING LINE IN THE INDUSTRY
VETA provides an advanced tube laser cutting service from Trumpf. Laser tube cutting, is a highly productive and flexible method of tube processing which is now finding applications in all industries.
Laser tube cutting technology enables the integration of intelligently combining the advantages of sheet metal and tube constructions. As a result, many elements traditionally formed in sheet metal can be replaced or optimized.
Tube laser cutting machines are designed both to cut hole profiles on round, square, oval, triangular and other special section tubes. Accurate laser cutting of highly complex shapes within the tube is possible.
Tube laser cutting eliminates all traditional marking out, sawing, drilling, deburring and shaping operations carried out with conventional tube processing. Traditional fixed costs of punches, clamps, tools and jigs, are also eliminated.
The tube laser machine is CNC controlled and programmed offline by 3D CADCAM software. With full automatic loading of tube raw material lengths up to 6.5 metres, automatic processing and automatic offload, the process offers very high productivity.
With imaginative cut profile design, significant savings can also be made in secondary downstream operations, whereby tubes can easily be formed and slotted together. Assembly operations are therefore more straight forward, eliminating the need for jigs and fixtures as well as reducing the requirement for welding. The results are quicker, cheaper, stronger and provide higher quality tubular fabrications.
Products incorporating metal tubes and profiles – from retail and furniture to industry oriented applications. Designers of such products are increasingly turning to laser cutting technology for the additional advantages it offers.
FIELDS OF APPLICATION
The ability to cut any type of contour in tubes and profiles with the utmost precision gives rise to greater design freedom, superb functionality, and efficient fabrication methods. Perfectly aligned even in stainless steel, result in visually appealing, top-quality products.
