TCM-Professional

Module for tube cutting

Module for round tube cutting TCM-Professional is combined with laser cutting machines Lasercut Standart, Lasercut Master, LaserCut Professional M2 and allows for cutting tubes along the length, engraving, as well as cutting out holes of any complexity and grooves.

Unimach machinery is manufactured in St Petersburg using our own components.

TCM-Professional Features

  • Cutting operations can be carried out near the supporting steady rest which lead to high precision cutting of tubes deformed due to manufacturing
  • Bowed tube is measured before the cutting in order to compensate it
  • Zero backlash steady rests to support a workpiece
  • Machine body is optimized by anchor reinforcement
  • Shaped tube cutting at angle
  • Universal steady rest to support shaped and round tubes

Features of Unimach tube cutting modules

High performance

Laser cutting machines Unimach are optionally equipped with modules for round and rectangular tube cutting, combining processing of flat sheets and precision tube cutting. Simple and intuitive change of cutting operations leads to increased efficiency.

Intuitive control

All Unimach equipment is controlled from one workplace using one software. Simple and user-friendly interface allows for carrying out many repeated operations automatically.

The highest cutting quality

Special function of Unimach software measures the tube curve and corrects received data which leads to precision processing of workpieces with damaged geometry.

TCM-Professional configuration

  • M1 Main module for holding and rotation of rectangular and round tubes
  • M3 Manual steady rest for rectangular and round tubes
  • M4 Steady rest to support round tubes

Modules for tube cutting TCM-Professional are equipped with steady rests to support rectangular and round tubes, as well as additional module to process the tubes up to 6000 mm.

Pneumatic steady rest

Steady rest locks and unlocks rectangular and round tubes using pneumatic air which lead to quicker change of tubes and provides additional comfort.

  • Max cross-section 150х150 mm
    Max length 3000 mm
  • Max diameter 150 mm
    Max length 3000 mm
  • Max cross-section 150х150 mm
    Max length 6000 mm
  • Max diameter 150 mm
    Max length 6000 mm

Manual steady rest

Manual steady rest locks and unlocks rectangular and round tubes using a special plug wrench.

  • Max cross-section 150х150 mm
    Max length 3000 mm
  • Max cross-section 150х150 mm
    Max diameter 150 mm
    Max length 3000 mm
  • Max cross-section 150х150 mm
    Max length 6000 mm

Steady rest to support the workpiece

Steady rest supports round tubes with different diameter.

  • Max diameter 250 mm
    Max length 3000 mm

Laser head cuts the tube near the automatic steady rest which securely holds the workpiece preventing it from unwanted oscillations.

Having processed a part of tube the portal automatically holds the steady rest and moves it, providing some room for the next cutting area.

The portal quickly and efficiently moves the steady rest along the tube excluding dead spots while processing.

This solution leads to significant economy of time and expanded efficiency.
