Steel Tube Laser Cutter

Steel Tube Laser Cutter

Industry: 
Aerospace
Problem: 

Looking for a solution for complex, precision cutting on a cylindrical part? Dies Not Cutting It? Try a Laser! Dies can warp the parts and require huge, loud presses that take up a lot of floor space and can become maintenance nightmares. This was the problem for one manufacturer until they turned to Custom Machines Incorporated to provide the solution.

Custom Machines Solution: 

CMI designed, built and installed a custom laser cutting turnkey system that delivers a higher quality part in less time and improves working conditions. This system utilizes a rotary servo and a CO2 laser mounted on a linear servomotor to perform precision cuts in steel tubing. A magazine loader feeds the parts to the fixture. After cutting, the tube interior is automatically cleaned to remove debris. Then, the fixture ejects the parts out the back of the system to a finished parts bin.
