  • Saved money on tooling, production and machine costs

The latest additions to the Kloeckner Metals UK processing family are our new multi-axis 3D tube lasers. Fully automated and CNC controlled they can process Stainless Steel and Mild Steel sections cleanly and consistently. Located at our newly re-furbished National Tube Processing Centre Dudley, in the heart of the Midlands, allows Kloeckner Metals UK the ability to deliver throughout the whole of the UK. The LT8 Tube Laser cutting machines provide customers with the complete in-house solution for all tube cutting requirements. The LT8 is a 3D laser pipe cutting machine that excels for the highest flexibility and user-friendliness, as well as for top quality and extremely precise laser cutting, on tube diameters from 12 to 220 mm and a bar weight up to 35 Kg/m. Equipped with a tilting head, it allows 3D cutting on all sections (open and special profiles included). Due to an efficient automatic loading system combined to a unique and ingenious unload, the productivity of the LT8 has no comparisons in its range. The automatic nesting software combined with the reduced end bar scrap, helps still better to exploit the available material.

Complex productions such as cutting different pieces on the same bar or batch changing among bars with different sections, are managed in automatically. The machine is able to propose and select the best suited choice for every production phase. Expert operators can manually handle every setting.
