BLM GROUP presented sparkling new LS7 sheet laser cutter at EuroBLECH
BLM Group presented its newest sheet laser cutting system at the EuroBLECH 2022 in Hanover. The new LS7, whose cutting speed and accuracy are key strengths, offers high productivity and ease of use and is provisioned with all the features characteristic of premier systems of its class.
The new LS7 laser cutting system from BLM Group is fully redesigned and optimized to process sheet metal that makes a clean break with the recent past of ADIGE-SYS featuring combined systems to process sheet and tube. “The structure, technology and functionality of LS7 takes BLM Group’s 30 years of experience and shapes it into an innovative and reliable system. LS7 will be appreciated by companies needing a high-quality system, with excellent performance, at a reasonable price,” declares Mauricio Gutierrez Matta, Global Business Development Manager - Sheet Metal Lasers BLM Group.
“The goal was to supply superior performance at the lowest possible price and it has been achieved by focusing on sheet metal cutting functions only and eliminating all the elements previously necessary to integrate tube processing. In an increasingly competitive market, the part cost is a fundamental aspect and it is necessary to have the right machine for each specific production process. Only in this way can costs be truly optimized”.
Main characteristics of LS7
The LS7 was designed as an entry-level product in the high-end system segment, i.e. a product with all the features and functionality of a high-end system, but at an attractive price. It has a conventional aluminium mobile gantry structure actuated by a rack and pinion system, which slides on a very strong metal structure, filled with polymer concrete to ensure high rigidity even with high accelerations up to 2G.
The cutting area has been designed to protect the bellows from the glowing sparks thrown in all directions, especially during piercing. Access is only from the short side and the entire machine remains completely enclosed for safety reasons related to the fibre laser source. The cutting process can be viewed by means of a camera, the image of which is visible on the operator console, on an additional external monitor and also remotely.
Pallet change in 9 seconds
The pallet change takes place on the long side in only 9 seconds thanks to a smart mechanical solution anticipating the simultaneous exchange of the two tables. Handling is fully electric, without pneumatic or hydraulic actuators.
LS7 is available in both 3.000 x 1.500 and 4.000 x 2.000 versions. Additional options include many loading-unloading automation solutions with one or two towers.
