A patent-pending technology exclusive to BLM GROUP, the unit simplifies the processing time required for mating an insert with a tubular component.
LT7 lasertube comes with a new thread insert unit, which automatically installs thread inserts into laser cut/drilled holes using press fitting. A simple and widely relied upon joining technique, press fitting relies upon force and friction to hold two components together. A patent-pending technology exclusive to BLM GROUP, this inserter unit simplifies and shortens the processing time required for mating an insert with a tubular component.
The thread insert is an ideal solution for thin wall tubes, which are not sufficient for standard threads, and an ideal partner with the bevel tube laser cutter LT7. The system is capable of handling threaded hexagonal inserts from M4 to M12 with automatic checks to ensure proper insertion.
Post-laser cutting, the time to install inserts is only nine to 11 seconds/insert.
