The Tube Laser gives designers freedom to easily put any cutout shape into pipe and tubing. Besides eliminating the old drill and saw, this new technology allows for error proof constructing techniques that speed production and reduce cost.
Tolerances on our old saw were +/- 1/16", and cut angles were +/- 2 degrees. The tube laser cuts to a true positional accuracy of +/- 0.005". This increased accuracy dramatically reduces fit up time at assembly.
Design in New Ways
No longer are you limited to straight cuts or circular holes. Designers can now use the tube laser to cut any shape they can imagine. The possibilities are endless. Examples and pictures of parts designed for the tube laser are listed below.
Huge Cutting Envelope
Shapes that fit inside a 10" diameter circle up to 30' long can be processed on this massive machine.
We serve a wide variety of industries including: automotive, waste water treatment, pressure piping, structural steel, conveyor components, food service, material handling, power generation, and agricultural.
Adding locating geometry to parts cut on the tube laser allows designers to error-proof downstream assembly. Additionally, the parts are mated together at the precise location required, with an accuracy of +/- 0.010".

The tube laser allows very precise fit up of various shapes and at any angle. The cost is very minimal, especially when compared to the labor involved in manual coping and fit up operations. You can change the shape of the mating surfaces without purchasing any tooling, unlike traditional coping machines.
