Hydram Sheet Metalwork provides a tube laser cutting service employing two dedicated tube cutting laser machines from BLM. Hydram bought its first CNC tube laser machine in 2006 and a second in 2013 as its laser cut tube business became established. Tube laser cutting services are just one provided by this large precision sheet metal fabrication company.
Laser cutting tube is a highly productive and flexible method of metal tube processing which is now finding applications in all industries. Laser tube cutting machines are designed both to cut hole profiles and end profiles (mitres or cod mouths) on round, square, oval, triangular and other special section metal tubes. Accurate laser profiling of highly complex shapes within the tube is possible.
Tube laser cutting eliminates all traditional marking out, sawing, drilling, deburring and shaping operations carried out with conventional tube processing. Traditional fixed costs of punches, clamps, tools and jigs are also eliminated.
The tube laser machines are CNC controlled and programmed offline by 3D CADCAM software. With full automatic loading of tube raw material lengths up to 8.5 metres, automatic processing and automatic offload, the process is highly productive.
Hydram manufactures metal components ranging from brackets and tubular pieces to fully painted and assembled fabrications such as chairs, benches and tables. Finished metal fabrications manufactured by Hydram can be found in furniture from corporate offices, high street shops, schools and leisure complexes.
Hydram works closely with associate companies within the Dynamic Metals Group accessing knowledge and expertise across a wide range of industrial sectors. Dynamic is a privately-owned business with its main headquarters in Michigan USA, comprising of a group of companies based in the US mid-west and the UK, having an established reputation specialising in the supply of precision metal components for the aerospace, defence, automotive and rail sectors.
