BLM Group USA’s CM602 automatic CNC sawing machine can handle tube and bar up to 4” in diameter depending on the material, and can achieve blade speeds up to 5,000 rpm. According to the company, it is ideal for cutting short and medium length steel, copper, brass and aluminum tubes, as well as solid bars and custom profiles.  

With the sawing machine the operator is assisted with instructions via icons on a touchscreen panel. By entering the tube shape, material thickness, the cut length and the material type, the machine selects the appropriate blade from its library, calculates the stroke, the cutting head feed rate, the blade speed, and then monitors the chip load to prevent the blade from being over-loaded and developing damaging excessive heat, the company says.

The material is loaded into the cutting area by a servomotor carriage, providing repeatable positioning and accuracy of the cut lengths, the company says.  At the end of the cut, during the return movement of the head, the bar is retracted to enable its detachment from the blade which preserves the material’s end finish and increases the saw blade’s lifetime. 

The cutting head is positioned at 45 degrees to the tube surface. According to the company, its linear movement across the tube provides a uniform load on the blade resulting in reduced noise and less scrap.
