Q1. How does the Balliu tube laser cutting machine grow my business?
A1: Extend your availability without extending labour requirement or footprint from investing in another machine, like a coping robot or bandsaw but still realise the financial gains. Instead of up skilling your labour and headcount, up skill your automation that will remove man hours from your fabrication process.   Remove the concern for where am I going to put all of this added functionality? It will all stand in one spot in a single machine, which will be utilised for tasks previously done by hand or on several different machines and set ups.
Q2. What makes the Balliu tube laser cutting machine the better known choice?
A2: Less scrap, higher speeds and additional capability with material handling options. Workshops with the Balliu tube laser enjoy the flexibility in mirroring machines so one operator can work an existing flat bed laser and the Balliu tube laser machine.
Q3. How does a tube laser machine deliver efficiency and improvement?
A3: Remove processes and capability from bandsaw, beamline, drilling, coping robot whilst processing carbon, stainless and exotic materials.  Improve cost per part whilst adding value to all steel profiles, tube and pipe that can now be completed on one machine.
Q4: Will the tube laser relegate our bandsaw and other tube processing machines to the history books?
A4: Workshops will always select the one machine that has the capability to automate several functions from the one machine.  When this flexibility is available several traditional and labor intensive machines become surplus to requirements when their competitiveness is redundant.

The variety of tasks that every fabricator has traditionally relied upon manual labour to carry out can now be automated on a Balliu laser cutting machine. This can now be fully automated.

Extensive testing, proving and delivery in all aspects over a number of years in fabricators and steel service centres workshops has built a diverse specification to meet your business performance outcomes and provide the competitive edge from automating tube laser cutting.

Q1. What is the competitive & technical advantage of the laser optical beam path only having one mirror?
A1.Less power is lost in the optical path due to absorption of the mirrors so maximum power of the laser on the workpiece is supplied for optimum performance. The alignment procedure is as simple as possible. The operator can easily perform this operation in a downtime relatively short without involving the service of the manufacturer or agent.
Q2. What flexibility can BMTC provide regarding standard and customized machines including the full range of loading & unloading possibilities?
A2. The tube laser can be orientated so the controller can be facing another machine so the one operator can work two machines without walking behind the machine. The unloading and loading can be retrofitted at a later stage so your workshop can build the work to the machine before adding increased capability and flexibility.
Q3. What is the advantage of BMTC full cooperation with SIEMENS supplying 70% of the equipment for the entire chain of movement including CNC / Drive / Cables / Drive Motors and hardware?
A3. BMTC does not bill clients if direct intervention for service is undertaken with Siemens. A full cooperation and total intervention by allowing Siemens technicians access to provide service with guaranteed response times.

Your business requires growth week on week, year on year. SMS are here to partner with you and your strategic team to understand the alternatives available to you.

Ensuring correct selection of any new asset is crucial, with both efficient use of capital and relevance of the automation process. SMS will work with you to apply the necessary metrics that will highlight what improvements can be made as well as how to achieve them.

Auditable, deliverable, measurable and evidence based metrics will be provided so that your strategic team can calculate the ROI, capacity increase and man hours reduced from a tube laser cutting machine. The SMS Flexibility Study will evaluate your current position and on going strategy, we will then assess any gaps to successfully deliver to your business and your clients.

Q1. Why is it possible that BMTC has the lowest cost to replace or maintain the laser optical path?
A1.Only two (1) flat mirror to replace during maintenance of the optical path.  No complex optical system with telescope mirror or adaptive mirror.
Q2. How can a tube laser cutting save time with fit up and welding?
A2. The tube laser can laser mark the tube at once or every 90 degrees so two parts fit up quickly and accurately so capacity and schedules are improved.
Q3. As BMTC also can provide a combination flatbed laser and tube laser machine from a flexibility point of view is my business better to invest in a combination machine compared to a dedicated tube laser cutting machine?
A3. If your workshop doesn’t already have a flat bed laser then the combination machine is a suitable machine if your workshop requires more flatbed cutting than tube cutting.  When the % of cutting is weighted towards tube laser cutting a dedicated machine with material handling automation will provide a lower cost per part, faster ROI.  There are also the commercial opportunities of selling excess capacity to the market from a dedicated tube laser cutting machine compared to a hybrid machine with a one part in one part out cutting philosophy that will not be competitive against a dedicated tube laser cutting machine.
