Square & Rectangle Cuts off Fiber Optic Tube Laser

This 2-1/2″ square tube and 1″ x 2″ rectangle tube was cut with our fiber optic tube laser. Cuts, copes, holes and slots can be cut in pieces like these in seconds.

Coped nested railing aluminum pieces from tube laser

These 2″ O.D. aluminum pieces were coped and nested to specifically fit together after being cut. This application is perfect when traditional cope connectors would have to be used to connect two pieces of pipe or tube together, such as handrail components.
