Creating production batches is a key step of tube processing on the shop floor.
The jobs loaded on the machine must contain all the information needed to proceed, including machine movement instructions, geometric details of the part, material characterization and technological options.

One of the crucial aspects of batch preparation for tube laser-cutting is the choice of bars for nesting. Material is the main cost factor in a work order and so its optimal management is essential to achieve a positive profit and yield.
With this crucial factor in mind, BLM GROUP has developed ProTube, for nesting, preparing production batches and monitoring them. The software implements advanced functions to make the best use of raw material at all stages of processing (supply, nesting and processing).

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.

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.
