BLM GROUP USA (Wixom, MI), a leader in tube processing equipment, will showcase its latest technology—a combined automatic sawing and end machining center for tube and bar processing at IMTS 2012
This will be the first time that BLM GROUP, a traditional fabricating equipment manufacturer will exhibit at IMTS.
The new technology, designated EM80, is an integrated CNC end machining center ideal for tube processing in order to cut, chamfer, face, bore, thread and profile.
The machine operates in several stages or stations. The first cuts the tube or bar to length, the second for turning operations such as roughing and finishing and the third stage for boring, tapping or measuring with part washing between. The unit comes with a bundle loader to handle up to 4,000kg and can be loaded at any time during the operation. A ‘conveyor’ brings the parts toward a two position chute to allow the parts to be dropped in to the appropriate bin. The conveyor also handles chip removal.
The EM80 handles tube diameters from 10 to 80mm and with wall thickness from 0.8 to 12mm and solid bar from 10 to 60mm. Bar stock lengths from 2500 to 120000mm. The blade cutting speed travels at 20m/min to 450m/min.
