UKF Stainless purchase a state of the art Lasertube LT5

08 May 2017

UKF stainless Ltd​ – suppliers of high quality stainless steel tubing are excited to announce their purchase of a state of the art Lasertube LT5 – offering an even more specialist cutting service.

This purchase represents the culmination of 12 months of research and development within a variety of market places both new and existing to UKF. Highly acclaimed within the industry the machine – equipped with a fibre laser generator – is made by BLM Adige in Italy. The project, partly funded by the ERDF offers state of the art precision opportunities for UKF’s customers.

LT5 with its low operating costs, extreme ease of use and high reliability, is specially designed for cutting tubes with small and medium thickness – and can cut a wide variety of materials with high productivity and quality level, from steels and alloys to copper and brass.
LT5 will leave conventional equipment lagging behind allowing UKF Stainless Ltd to manufacture and add more value to parts that currently cannot be achieved.


The addition of the Lasertube LT5 will enhance their current suite of machines and allow UKF to offer customers a ‘one stop shop’ solution for users of stainless steel tube and sections. Diameters from 12mm to 120mm can be accommodated by this new Laser machine – with the added bonus of a clean and spatter free product throughout thanks to its use of a unique accessory protecting the internal diameter of the tube.


LT5 provides extreme efficiency – the multiple benefits of which are passed straight on to customers. Conceptual thinking in the design stage of components using a dedicated CAD/CAM package ARTUBE provides the opportunity to exploit all the machine functions during the design stage, and to obtain very accurate costings. The use of the laser can eliminate the need for additional operations such as welding, delivering more cost-effective parts which are even cosmetically enhanced.

UKF Stainless Ltd offering the best in productivity and performance for efficient handling of tubes to the industry worldwide.
