Custom Tube Requirements

Custom Tube Requirements

Self-centering chucking jaws do not need to be changed, and rollers which guide tubes through the laser tube cutting machine automatically adjusting to their diameter.
Special jaws for open shape processing.

 

  • 21-foot, 24-foot, and 29.5-foot raw tube stock automated tube loading
  • 10-foot, 15-foot, 21-foot, 24-foot and 29.5-foot automated unload
  • Open shape processing including equal and unequal leg length angles, c-channels, w-shapes, and flat bars
  • Bevel cutting to +/- 45 degrees from tube surface. See attached PDF drawing for bevel cutting verses perpendicular cutting
  • Tapping, drilling and flow drilling
  • Round, oval, or custom tube holes and shapes made by utilizing either “plane” or “perpendicular” processing - See Attached PDF drawing under our Resources Tab lower on this page
  • 500-pound individual automated tube loading capacity
  • Automated and manual tube loading capability
  • Up to 27.5 pound per foot capacity
  • Seam detection technology on both inside and outside of tube
  • 6600-pound bundle capacity
  • High speed “rapid cutting” technology
  • Spatter catching to keep round tube spatter free on the inside (call to discuss limitations)
  • Nitrogen, Oxygen, Air and third gas assist gas cutting capabilities
  • CAD data exchange file formats *.STP, *.sldprt, *.sldasm, *.x_t, *.step, *.stp, *.igs or *.iges
  • 10-ton overhead crane truck bay under roof to keep your materials clean and dry and eliminate fork truck handling which can cause accidents and damage to man, materials, and machines

Applications

We can cut parts in all common materials with many common features and custom shapes.  

Some advanced design ideas include:

  • Hooks,
  • Tabs,
  • Slots,
  • Radius bend formed tubes,
  • Sharp bent tubes,
  • Folded joint, and
  • Plug-in connections for joining other tubes,
  • Shapes,
  • Flat and even press brake bent parts.

This allows part designers to have creative reign over a unique and cost-effective way to manufacture parts.

We have been tube laser cutting since 2004 and have amassed a tremendous amount of knowledge to produce some of the most complex and challenging tube cut parts in the world. Many other lesser experienced shops would either pass on or fail to correctly make these parts, all at a cost that may surprise you. 

Requirements

Since there are no “stack-up” tolerance issues when you are using conventional operations and our machines use some patented technologies to hold the tubes, parts made on our tube lasers are quite accurate. Keep in mind that we can cut almost any shape imaginable in tubing walls or tube ends. Eliminate most if not all your machining, tooling, punching, drilling, tapping and even some bending by using Ohio Laser for your tubing requirements!

Call us with either simple or your most demanding and problem parts as our engineers and operators love a challenge and do not forget to check out our videos to see our laser tube cutting equipment in action!

  • Please send us your CAD data in the following formats to allow us to expidte your tube quotes and orders. *.sldprt, *.sldasm, *.x_t, *.step, *.stp, *.igs or *.iges. Please also include a PDF drawing for other pertiant information.
