The Fraunhofer Center for Laser Technology has introduced a high-speed laser tube mill for continuous production of small-diameter tubing. It forms and welds flat coil stock into tubing at speeds greater than 60 ft/min. It uses PRC Laser's STS 3000 fast-axial-flow CO2 laser and is suitable for use by high-volume tubing manufacturers. The company designed the laser tube mill for increased process stability, greater processing speeds and reduced downtime, and to eliminate the welding consumables associated with traditional welding mills.
