Trumpf claims its TruLaser Tube 7000 laser tube processing machine can process tubes with a rectangular, round or oval cross-section as well as cut thin-walled or large heavy tubes and incorporate complex contours and cutouts. The company says the machine will also cut tubes and profi les up to 250mm in diameter with a wall thickness of up to 8mm. A new feature allows it to bevel cut up to 45° in mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium. The machine features stepped rollers that support and guide the tubes, and adjust automatically to the diameter of each workpiece. The FocusLine mechanism sets the laser focus and automatically adjusts it to suit the type and thickness of the material being processed.
