This is the age of integration, of the All-In-One to reduce operations and optimize production. We want to have everything under control, constantly measured and compared. We want all the information stored in an organized manner because we do not know when we are going to need it again, but we know that we will. We are always on the lookout for more and more sophisticated tools to manage a growing complexity and demand.

An integral part of the expansive BLM GROUP family of Lasertube systems, the laser cutting systems for large diameter tubes, both fiber and CO2, are characterized by several basic structural differences compared to their counterparts for smaller diameter.
The main ones are the tube handling system with three powerful spindles, two head and one tail, capable of easily handling much larger and heavier tubes, and a 3D laser cutting head moved by five numerically controlled axes allowing the possibility of moving along the entire tube to process both ends as well as the central part.
