BLM Group USA offers the EM80, a combined automatic sawing and end-machining center for tube and bar processing. The integrated CNC center is well-suited to cut, chamfer, face, bore, thread and profile tube and bar. The machine handles tube diameters ranging from 10 to 80 mm, wall thicknesses ranging from 0.8 to 12 mm, and solid bar measuring 10 to 65 mm with barstock lengths ranging from 2,500 to 12,000 mm. The blade is said to maintain constant chip load and travels at 20 to 450 m/min.
The unit comes with a bundle loader to handle loads as heavy as 4,000 kg and can be loaded at any time during operation. A conveyor brings the parts toward a two-position chute and drops them into the appropriate bin, while a second conveyor handles chip removal.
The company will also exhibit other products for tube processing, including laser tube cutters, tube and wire benders, tube end formers, and cold saws.
