Laser cutting of thick walled tubes provides cost and part quality advantages when comparted to traditional plasma or oxygen cutting. The laser performs accurate cuts needed to meet the required tolerances; without the need for grinding or other re-work. The laser cut edges are ready for welding without any additional weld prep. Laser cutting consolidates multiple operations that would normally require multiple set ups, plus additional handling and labor.

The cutting head can work perpendicularyly to the tube surface or it can cut at an angle. The tilt cutting function is useful for creating chamfers and semi-chamfers that are needed for the weld prep needed to butt weld tubes. The laser guarantees maximum accuracy and avoids the need to rework the cut edges prior to welding.

Changes of diameter, thickness or shape are all done automatically. No additional tooling or grippers are needed to switch from one shaped tube or section to another. This provides tremendous savings compared to conventional manual processes. Part quality is no longer dependent on the operators set up skill. The operator is free to focus on the cutting process and on production.
