  • SMART - A compact, ultrafast tube bender
    SMART, the all-electric tube bending machine provides speed, precision and reliability when processing tube with diameters up to 1 in. (28 mm). Its compact layout and integrated loading/unloading enable automated non-stop operations....

  • The SMART all-electric tube bending machine is particularly well suited for bending complicated shapes and multiple radii tubes. It can be used in a wide range of configurations; from manual to robotic loading or with a range of automated loaders designed to handle straight tubes or pre-assembled tubes with formed ends, flanges or fittings. The entire system is managed from a single point via the VGP3D software, making programming and operating simple.

    No experience needed

    All movements are managed by an electric axis. Set-up is automatic, and all position and power parameters are saved together with the part program.

    Two times more efficient

    With the SMART, the cost per part is the lowest ever. You have speed, automatic optimized cycle and loading operations, all with an extremely low investment.  

    Designed for when the going gets tough

    It makes bending radii of less than 1D with the guarantee of perfect repeatability and precision.  With the electric control of all axes, you can tackle even the most technologically demanding bends with ease.

    Perfect results from the first part

    Quickly change production, eliminate waste, trial and error for mistake-free production of every new part, right from the start. It used to take many attempts and great skill to obtain the desired bending shape. Today, with B-Tools, your tube bending machine guarantees error-free production from the first part and reliance on operator skill level.


    Automatic control features stop machine operation if a condition is detected. This means that processes are always reliable and safe. Material waste is prevented even if the process is unmanned.


    Unstoppable, reliable, robust, and systematic. All you need to do is pick up the products at the end of the day.

    Brilliant in every production context

    Standalone or connected to an automatic feeder and loader. Combine with other BLM GROUP technologies, such as end-forming machines, lasertubes, or sawing machines.

    Create your complete production process, manage it from a single control point and make it grow over time or adapt it to new uses.

  • LT7 Lasertube - Unlimited possibilities
    Built using over 25 years of laser tube cutting development experience, the LT7 is designed to improve productivity and accuracy through innovations in tube management and handling....

  • The LT7 lasertube features a 4kW fiber laser that provides a broad working range that allows for easily cutting up to 6-inch round, square and rectangular sections. Special sections and open profiles can also be processed. 


    • Work independently with the bundle loader
    • Pause the workflow to produce small batches, loading one or a few bars on the fly
    • Load special and/or open profiles without management problems.
    • Unload short or long parts, front or back, while scrap is automatically managed
    • Integrate robotic loaders or automated storage systems for continuous flow production 

    Immediate Production Changeover

    At the end of each production batch the LT7 configures itself for the next batch for quick changes in production and higher productivity, regardless of the new sections to be made — round, square, special and even open profiles. No manual adjustments are necessary. This advantage results in higher output and a lower cost per part.  

    Active Tools: Smart functions to improve your productivity

    Exclusive patented technical solutions from BLM GROUP ensure ease of use for operators, regardless of their experience. Technologies include: 

    • Active Tilt – uses focus head movement to provide fastest processing of small features 
    • Active Focus – provides error free cuts regardless of changes of material and thickness 
    • Active Marking – offers dynamic part marking for complete production traceability 
    • Active Speed – ensures higher cutting quality on the most critical jobs 
    • Active Piercing – increases piercing speed and reliability even on inconsistent material quality and thickness 
    • Active Weld - detects the internal or external weld seam and repositions the tube to ensure to the weld seam is oriented to the programmed position

    BLMelements: the software suite that creates value

    • Design of parts and frames in a three-dimensional graphical CAD/CAM environment (Artube) designed to exploit every performance margin of the lasertubes
    • Libraries of functions that speed up and simplify design on the tube
    • Accurate batch time and cost estimates for a detailed estimate (PartViewer)
    • Remote planning and real-time monitoring of work in progress (Protube)

  • ProBend - All-electric, direct-drive, press brake
    ProBend E-Series: Fully-electric press brake for simple to complex sheet metal bending....

  • The benchmark of precision bending

    ProBend press brakes are available in the patented all-electric E-Series or the hybrid H-Series version.  The ProBend E-Series is available in sizes from 44 – 276 ton models capable of handling bending lengths of 4’ – 17’.  The ProBend H-Series is available in sizes from 44 – 660 ton models capable of handling bending lengths of 4’ – 20’. 

    The innovative direct-drive design of this electric press brake has the ball screw directly connected to the torque motor, eliminating gear boxes and belts for fewer moving components. This precision Y1/Y2 press brake with positioning and repeatability of ±0.0001" is energy efficient, provides noise and maintenance-free operation, and has extremely fast approach, bending and ram return speeds.

    The E-Series comes standard with a substantial amount of stroke and open height compared to industry standard for benefitting deep box or special forming needs. Built for optimum accuracy and high speeds on all 6-axes to process, the CNC-controlled back gauge meets the demands of the most complex sheet metal applications for high-production manufacturing. 
    As compared to traditional technology, the BLM ProBend Hybrid H-Series reduces energy demand by 35% while providing greater ram speed performance with an Y1/Y2 accuracy of ±0.0004".  Additionally, it maintains a stable hydraulic fluid temperature that results in more consistent bending performance.  It can be equipped with up to a 6-Axis back gauge for processing the toughest applications. 


    Complete Process Control

    All systems come with a state-of-the-art 21.5” touchscreen console, enabling graphical or direct mode programming directly on the machine or offline. The console includes integrated views for various OLP software applications. The software automatically generates the part program from the imported CAD model and calculates the optimal bend sequence, stop positions, and tooling set-up.  A complete bending simulation, with automatic validations and checks, allows the user to verify the entire bending cycle and begin producing parts, correctly, from the start. 

    Perfect Partners 

    Packing a BLM ProBend press brake with the BLM LS5 flat sheet laser gives you the ability to streamline your offline programming process saving you both time and money.
