Tubular Frame Fabrication: Endless Innovation with Lasertube & Artube

Jun 9, 2021 4:07:45 PM

When you think of tube, normally you think of it as a fluid carrier – a water pipe, a gas line or a fuel line. You don’t think of a tube as a structural element, even if we see several examples of tube being used as a structural element in our daily lives.

The differences between laser and plasma in tube cutting

May 20, 2021 9:31:41 PM

The differences between laser and plasma cutting in sheet metal are well known but what are the criteria for choosing between them when cutting tubes and profiles?

Laser cutting and plasma cutting are two technologically different metal cutting methods. As can be expected, the characteristics of the cut, the types of applications and the benefits they can offer are also different.

Automation is renewed and slashes production costs

May 5, 2021 6:00:11 PM

It has been years since there has been such an upheaval in the world of automation and not only in the manufacturing field. We can talk about a real "Renaissance" or as it has been called by theorists a new industrial revolution, (the fourth to be precise).

New technologies, process data collection and analysis, increasingly sophisticated simulations, digital twins, widespread connectivity at various levels (WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet and soon 5G), all accompanied by the ever-present and promising growth of artificial intelligence.

Sheet laser cutting – features that optimize performance!

Apr 12, 2021 12:38:55 PM

When one thinks of BLM GROUP’s laser machines, one immediately thinks of Lasertube systems.

It is quite natural that BLM GROUP is firmly associated to laser tube cutting as the technology was invented, developed and brought to the current level of reliable high productivity systems, by BLM GROUP.

This spectacular success in the tube sector sometimes makes people forget that BLM GROUP has been manufacturing laser sheet cutting systems for the past 30 years.

Best cutting technology for the fabrication of steel structures

Mar 29, 2021 6:58:15 PM

The steel construction sector demands radical changes in the processes used to cut H, C and IPE type tubes and profiles and to prepare them for successive fabrication steps. There is an increased demand to construct ultra-modern structures. The ever-increasing complexity of forms and requirement of esthetically appealing appearances present a growing fabrication challenge. This modern trend is also seen in residential buildings. Additional aspects of the modern trend are eco-sustainability and the need to complete the projects in shorter time frames to reduce costs.

Right or left-hand or right and left-hand tube bender in automatic process

Mar 17, 2021 7:03:19 PM

The bending direction of a tube bending machine is determined by looking down on the bend die. If it rotates clockwise when bending it is “right-hand”. Conversely, if it rotates counter clockwise, it is “left-hand”.
