Tube laser technology is a game-changer in metal fabrication. It offers many advantages over traditional machining centers, directly impacting your bottom line.

Precision and Quality Tube Laser Cutting delivers high tolerances and burr-free cuts. This ensures a precise component fit without further processing and results in superior assembly quality. The overall higher part accuracy enhances structural strength without adding material weight, making parts lighter without compromising their integrity and functionality.

The Tube Laser’s flexibility in handling all order volumes—from one to thousands—with quick and user-friendly set-ups allow for easy production scaling. This will enable you to efficiently meet market demands and rapidly prototype and test new designs.     

Tube Laser Technology consolidates multiple, traditional operations such as saw cutting, drilling, milling, tapping, slotting and other processes into one, efficient, precise and consistent operation. In outsourcing your traditional tube processing to a tube laser, it enhances your product quality and lowers your cost. It optimizes your available resources, reduces waste and eliminates the need for new and costly equipment. 

Design Flexibility

Tube laser cutting elevates design sophistication, seamlessly integrating complex geometries and nuanced details with minimal cost implications. This flexibility fosters innovation and customization in product design, allowing for unique and tailored solutions that meet specific customer needs and market demands.

How Tube Laser Processing Works

Tube laser processing is a sophisticated and highly automated method that revolutionizes how tubing is cut, shaped, and finished. Here’s a look at each step of our process:

1. Material loading: The process starts with a tube loaded automatically into the machine from a bundle of raw material. Conveyors and robotic arms facilitate this step, handling a wide range of tube sizes and materials, ensuring automatic, seamless and efficient loading.

2. Speed and Cost-Efficient Tube Laser cutting boosts efficiency and reduces costs through a fully automated system by eliminating time-consuming manual setups. Automated loading, self-centering chucks and going directly from part programming to cutting reduces operational errors and expedites production. It offers the overall benefit of quick and cost-effective manufacturing solutions.

3. Programming and design input: The cutting instructions, derived from digital designs or CAD models, are input into the machine’s control system. This programming includes detailed specifications for cuts, holes, notches, and other features, allowing for complex geometries and intricate designs. Advanced software translates these designs into precise laser-cutting paths.

4. Laser cutting: The heart of the process involves a high-powered laser beam directed through optics to focus on the tube’s surface. As the laser moves along the programmed path, it cuts the material, creating clean and precise edges. The laser’s intensity, speed, and focal point are CNC controlled to achieve optimal cutting performance for different materials and thicknesses.

5. Secondary operations: Our tube laser machines are equipped with additional capabilities, such as tapping, beveling, or etching, allowing for secondary operations to be performed in the same setup. This integration further streamlines the fabrication process, reducing the need for additional machines and handling.

6. Quality control and inspection: Throughout the cutting process, integrated sensors and monitoring systems continuously check the accuracy and quality of cuts. This real-time feedback ensures that the final product meets the design specifications, minimizing waste and rework.

7. Unloading and finishing: The finished parts are automatically unloaded from the machine after the cutting and any secondary operations are complete. Depending on the requirements, parts may undergo additional finishing processes, such as cleaning and kitting, within the same system or in separate finishing stations.

This fully automated, highly precise process drastically reduces the potential for human error and ensures consistent, repeatable results across production runs. With our advanced tube laser processing, you can achieve ultra-precision and efficiency, unlocking new productivity levels and innovation.


Tube laser cutting is a versatile and cost-effective solution for a broad spectrum of metal fabrication applications. It’s gaining traction among many sectors, making precision and efficiency available to more companies and budgets than ever before.
