Novi, Michigan – BLM GROUP USA will host its biennial Open House, “INTUBE” at its new 75,000ft2 facility in Novi, Michigan, from May 8 to 17. During this event, the company will showcase a wide range of innovative metal fabrication solutions for lasertube and flat sheet cutting, tube and wire bending, endforming, end-machining, and cold sawing.
The theme of the INTUBE Open House is “Future is Calling,” which reflects the company’s forward-thinking focus on the concepts of Industry 4.0 — greater efficiencies and leaner processes to help customers build their business.
The latest solution, LT7 — a new generation of lasertube — will be introduced for the first time in North America. Using over 25 years of experience in lasertube development, BLM GROUP designed the LT7 to increase productivity and improve accuracy through innovations in tube management and fixturing.
Visitors will see practical examples of automation of lasertube and bender loading and unloading. These automation cell demonstrations occur between BLM GROUP machines and secondary operations and will show how simple integrations can radically improve productivity and reduce labor costs.
Applications specialists will demonstrate BLM GROUP’s proprietary software suite — “BLMelements” — which is a single management point for designing, programming, and planning tube and sheet fabrication production. The software also allows for remote machine monitoring, collects operating statistics and receives real-time notifications of events that may require attention.
Each attendee’s visit to INTUBE 2018 will be personalized according to their individual schedules and technology interests. In addition to providing a custom technology experience, BLM GROUP will offer meals and assist with overnight accommodations during the event.
