Tube fabricators use a variety of methods—sawing, lathe cutting, rotary cutting, supported shear cutting, dual-blade shear cutting, and laser cutting—to cut tubing from mill lengths into shorter pieces for use in final fabrication. No single method is optimal for cutting the broad range of tubular materials and tubular shapes produced by this industry.
The OPTIPLEX NEXUS 3015 CO2 laser-cutting system is simply innovative. It combines high performance with a compact and flexible design, ideal for fabrication job shops looking to expand into laser-cutting services.
