Since the turn of the year 2011/2012, Bystronic has been offering its BySprint Fiber both with two-kilowatt laser power and now with a three-kilowatt laser source. The new Fiber 3000 laser source increases the maximum thickness of sheets to be processed from 12 to 20 millimeters with steel; from 6 to 8 millimeters for stainless steel, from 6 to 12 millimeters for aluminum; and for copper and brass to 6 millimeters. As a result of its higher power, the BySprint Fiber with the Fiber 3000 laser source is thus considerably more flexible in its application.
A further innovation with fiber laser cutting is the ByPos Fiber, on which the focus position can be automatically adjusted. This is necessary in particular when the type of material is changed between two orders. ByPos Fiber will be fitted as standard to all BySprint Fiber systems that are ordered after the new year, independent of the selected laser power. For systems that were delivered without the ByPos Fiber, a retrofit kit will be available from the third quarter of 2012.
