WEC Group News

WEC Laser invests in the latest 3D tube laser cutting technology.
01 June 2011

The WEC Laser division has recently benefitted from substantial investments with the purchase of an Adige LT8 Tube Laser Cutting machine from BLM Group. The new machine adds 3D laser cutting to the company's list of available services

The Tube Laser excels for the highest flexibility and user- friendliness, as well as for top quality and extremely precise laser cutting, on a tube diameter range from 12 to 220 mm and a bar weight up to 35 Kg/m.

Equipped with tilting head, it allows on all sections (open and special profiles included) 3D cut processing. Thanks to the cutting head with tilting axes (3D) bevels and semi-bevels can be performed to simplify the fitting/welding operations of medium/large thickness tubes.

The LT8 is the second laser tube cutting machine from BLM purchased by Laser Engineering UK over the past 12 months and follows a £1.5m investment in new laser machinery for 2010 across our laser division, including a 7KW Trumpf 4m x2m laser cutting machine that now allows the company to cut up to 30mm in stainless and mild steel, and 20mm in aluminium.
