Laser Tube Cutting
From a simple mounting hole to an ornate architectural detail, precision is everything. Laser tube cutting makes clean cuts that meet print every time. Totten Tubes has in-house laser processing capabilities with the Mazak 3D Fabri Gear 400, Mazak Fabri Gear 200 and BLM LT8.20. The BLM LT8 20 advanced technology tube laser cutter uses a 4000-watt laser to cut steel tubes with revolutionary accuracy and speed.

6 Reasons to Choose Totten Tubes for Laser Tube Cutting
- Precision: Laser tube cutting not only eliminates human error; it relieves you of having to pay top dollar for a highly experienced worker.
- Speed: Before tools like the Mazak 3D Fabri Gear 400 II and the BLM LT8, tubes had to be processed by hand. To achieve precision, workers had to cut very slowly. As a result, processing a tube could take hours.
- Totten Tubes is excited to offer in-house laser processing of mechanical and structural tubing and pipe.
- The Mazak 3D Fabri Gear 400 II and the BLM LT8 has reduced this time to mere minutes.
- Efficiency: Laser tube cutting services deliver ready-to-assemble, turnkey parts. We can laser cut parts with a tab and a slot so that you can snap them together and weld them, without having to build a jig and a fixture to hold them in place.
- Eliminate Deburring: The precision you get with laser tube cutting isn’t just about making cuts that meet print. Our laser tube cutting tool makes clean cuts, eliminating the need for deburring.
- Free Up Capital: We invested in the Mazak 3D Fabri Gear 400 II so you don’t have to.
- Totten Tubes’ laser tube cutting services frees up capital; instead of allocating capital toward bringing this technology in-house, you can put toward other important upgrades or expenses.
