Tube lasers, obviously, are limited to cutting one stick of tube (or angle or channel) at a time. How does that stack up to saw cutting bundles of tube when comparing labor time? The answer may be surprising. Bundle cutting is very efficient, but it has draw backs. Here are a few the bundle cutting […]

The answer is, again, a resounding YES! Just like Tube and Angle, Channel can be sliced, diced, notched, mitered, slotted, hole-patterned and cut with obscure shapes. These type of cuts, because of the Tube Laser’s ability to rotate the channel, combined with a 5-Axis beam head, can happen in the web or on the legs […]
