Laser Cutting of Tubes

Laser Cutting of Tubes

Automatic cutting of tubes and other long-size material

We employ different types of laser machines for cutting tubes, fixed or movable cutting head.

Cutting with a movable head (3D cutting) offers the possibility to work products previously not tailored to laser cutting. For instance welding chamfers can be cut without subsequent treatment being required. Similarly countersunk holes can be cut simultaneously. Supreme fit is achieved for mating parts with curved surfaces.

 

The difference between ordinary tube cutting and
3D cutting with movable cutting head

A small tube must go aslant through a larger tube.


In ordinary tube cutting (fixed head), section surfaces go perpendicularly against the tube's longitudinal direction, and tubes are then fitted this way.


In 3D cutting (movable head), section surfaces can be angled towards the tube's longitudinal direction in order to get a perfect fit between the tubes.


We have large production capacity

We have been gathering experience and knowledge about laser cutting of tubes for several years. We have several machines with different characteristics, and the machinery is continuously expanded. At present, we have 17 tube cutting machines.

Our machinery is continuously updated, so contact us even if your details do not fit the stated dimensions.


Tenoning

Once the details have been laser cut, the parts can be prepared with matching tenons and holes. These tenons and holes provide a perfect fit prior to welding. No measurement of the parts is required.

Tenoning facilitates the assembly and joining of the parts. You get a perfectly assembled product.

Tenoning also helps you avoid expensive welding rigs. A welding rig is a high cost in product development.

Laser cutting of tubes with fixed cutting head

This is the traditional manner to laser cut tubes, i.e. the cutting head is fixed and always directed towards the centre of the pipe.

Section surfaces in HF HRS sections are perpendicular to the even surfaces. Cutting of indentations and cutting products with great precision and speed This is a superior production method when it comes to both small and large batches.

Capacity

  • Maximum material length for cutting: 6500 mm
  • Maximum dimension: Ø 140 mm or 120 x 120 mm
  • Minimum dimension: Ø 10 mm or 10 x 10 mm
  • Maximum product thickness: 8 mm
  • Maximum weight: 97.5 kg or 15 kg/m

Fibre-Optic Laser Cutting

Weland can now also offer fibre-optic laser cutting of tubes.

Fibre lasers are a compact, effective and reliable method that has long been used within several other business areas.

It is now also possible to use the technique for metalworking, which provides a number of advantages compared to traditional laser techniques:

  • Green Tech – Up to 80 per cent lower energy consumption results in more environmentally friendly production.
  • New materials – Fibre lasers can cut highly reflective materials such as stainless steel, aluminium, brass and copper, which the market is now demanding.


Laser cutting of tubes with moveable cutting head

Automatic cutting with movable cutting head (3D cutting) enables production of components where the use of laser cutting has not been possible before. For example, welding chamfers are cut without any need for finishing. Likewise, countersinks can be cut at the same time as holes are made.

It is possible to cut "edge-to-edge "tube joints with arched surfaces with great precision. The fit is just superb when surfaces are fitted to each other.

Angled connections and tubes in different dimensions can also be cut.

Large capacity with automatic feed of materials, even in coarse dimensions.

Capacity

  • Maximum material length for cutting: 12,200 mm
  • Maximum dimension: Ø 267 mm or 270 x 270 mm
  • Minimum dimension: Ø 10 mm or 10 x 10 mm
  • Maximum product thickness: 15 mm
  • Maximum weight 871 kg or 72.5 kg/m

JUMBO Tube Laser

Cutting heavy gauge profiles with movable cutting head

We are the first company in Sweden to offer 3D “Jumbo cutting”. This is opening up entirely new production opportunities in the heavy-duty segment for the steel construction industry.

This unique machine offers the same precision and speed as our normal laser machines for cutting tubes.

The “Jumbo” is located in a new, purpose-built part of our factory, which is tailor-made for loading and unloading long and heavy profiles.

In addition to round and square profiles, which can also cut in oval, semi-oval and elliptical profiles, as well as rolled steel beams. Certain other profiles can also be cut.

Unique opportunities for the construction sector!

Capacity

  • Maximum material length for cutting: 18,000 mm
  • Maximum dimension: Ø 508 mm, 400 x 400 mm or 500 x 300 mm
  • Minimum dimension: Ø 80 mm or 80 x 80 mm
  • Maximum product thickness*: 16 mm (black steel) or 12 mm (stainless steel)
  • Minimum product thickness: 2 mm
  • Maximum weight: 3600 kg or 200 kg/m

* incl. 3D cutting.
