Our rotary laser cutter replaces conventional manufacturing methods such as sawing, drilling, milling and punching to make light work of most tube/RHS applications. It uses rotary laser cutting technology to cut tubes and profiles into sections in one clamping operation and produces recesses and contours with greater accuracy using a 4kW laser.
The proven concept of the TruLaser Tube 5000 replaces traditional fabrication processes such as sawing, drilling, milling and punching for more efficient manufacturing. The perfect compatibility between the components ensures high productivity: from the laser unit and the beam guidance system to the clamping unit and the control panel and right to the modules for the handling of tubes and profiles.
Benefits of the rotary laser include:
|Round Tube/Pipe||168mmØ x 7.7m|
|Rectangular Hollow Section RHS||152mm x 76mm x 7.7m|
|Square Hollow Section SHS||125mm x 125mm|
|Max Wall Cut Stainless Steel||5mm|
|Max Wall Cut Mild Steel||6mm|
|Max Wall Cut Aluminium||4mm|
This video demonstrates the entire process for a part cut on the Tru Laser Tube 5000 from the model design in Solidworks through to programming and the laser cutting of the part.
This video is a snapshot of our laser technology cutting an intricate interlocking pattern out of tube to create a flexible stainless steel "key ring". As a result of this small key ring design Stainless Design was approached to create a "Giant Worm" using the same interlocking pattern to create a flexible steel worm sculpture for the Dunedin Botanic Gardens. Read more about the "Giant Worm" here.
Once again using our rotary laser technology see how SDL manufactures a simple chair design by cutting RHS on the Tru-Laser Tube and folding on one of our CNC press brakes to create a small steel chair.
