The competitively priced BySmart Fiber can be supplied with a laser source of 2, 3, 4, or 6kW and optional automated material handling solutions to allow the full potential of the machine to be utilised. Available in UK and Ireland through subsidiary Bystronic UK, Coventry, the new machine platform achieves same rapid, top quality cutting for which the Swiss manufacturer’s fibre laser equipment is well-known. The 6kW source enables users to achieve the maximum increase in cutting speed, for example by up to 70% compared to a 4kW fibre laser when cutting 3mm stainless steel. The advantage is even more pronounced in comparison to a 6kW CO₂ laser, as productivity is trebled. Fibre lasers are able to process a wide range of materials from steel and stainless steel to aluminium, copper and brass with operating costs and maintenance requirements that are relatively low. For manufacturers whose applications lie in the thin to medium sheet thickness range, it means faster cutting, lower costs, and higher profit per part. Additionally, Bystronic offers its Power Cut Fiber function to extend the range of applications to thicker sheet, delivering high quality cuts in material up to 30mm. T...
