BLM Group introduces the compact LC5, equipped with a 4.5-kW fiber laser and automatic loading/unloading for processing both tube and flat sheet in high-production applications. The fiber laser is ideal for cutting both mild steel and highly reflective materials such as stainless steel and aluminum.

The machine’s design speeds switching from tube to sheet, adding the flexibility fabricators need to expand laser processing capabilities. The fiber laser cutting machine can handle bar ranging to 21 ft. in length and tube as large as 4.75" in diameter. The processing of sheet metal is fully automatic on the LC5, which accommodates sheet as large as 5 × 10 ft. The unit is equipped with an automatic pallet changer, and optional sheet storage towers on the loading and unloading side can promote increased automatic production. In addition, the machine includes four scrap collection trays to ease scrap management.

The unit features two separate 19" touchscreen consoles: one on the tube cutting side and one on the sheet side. The LC5 can use BLM’s Enterprise Software for full management of lasers, tube benders, end machining and cold saws with real-time production feedback. This optional package incorporated with Artube enables seamless programming and production management.
