BLM Group USA’s EM80 is a combined automatic sawing and end machining center for tube and bar processing. The integrated CNC end machining center is able to cut, chamfer, face, bore, thread and profile workpieces. It operates in several stages. The first is for cutting the tube or bar to length, the second is for turning operations such as roughing and finishing, and the third is for boring, tapping or measuring (with part washing between). The machine comes with a bundle loader that can handle as much as 4,000 kg and can be loaded at any time during the operation. A conveyor brings the parts toward a two-position chute to be dropped into the appropriate bin. The conveyor also handles chip removal.
