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.

  • Broaching On A Lathe

    Producing a keyway, spline or similar longitudinal feature on a turned part usually necessitates an additional, time-consuming, secondary operation on a broaching or slotting machine. That means moving the part to and from a secondary operation, an extra setup, additional labor and hourly machine costs and all of the other headaches that go with secondary operations.

    Plateau honing is a process that improves cylinder wall surface finish by removing tiny peaks of torn or folded material and increasing bearing area.

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
