At FABTECH 2022, BLM GROUP (Novi, MI) will demonstrate its new LS7 sheet laser cutting machine that features axis acceleration up to 2g and up to a 12kW fiber laser source. Additionally, the system completes pallet changeovers in nine seconds. The LS7 can cut steel, stainless steel, iron, copper, brass, and aluminum in sheet sizes up to 162 x 79 inches (411.5 x 200.7 cm) in thicknesses from 0.20 to 1.57 inches (0.5 to 4 cm), or even double sheets, depending upon the material and selected laser power.
Users can add automatic sheet loading and unloading or a storage tower for automated material type and thickness changeovers, which is especially well-suited for unmanned operations. Other features of the LS7 include Plug & Play operations, the ability to integrate with ERP systems as well as material handling and storage systems.
The system comes equipped with the BLM GROUP’s patented Active Tools, which automatically adapt process parameters for optimal results independent of operator experience. Additionally, an Active Nozzle Changing feature automatically monitors the wear of the cutting nozzle and exchanges it based upon the condition set within the controller.
