With the new BySmart Fiber, Bystronic offers a concentrated fiber laser cutting system at an attractive price level. Up to 6 kilowatts of laser power and suitable automation solutions allow users to exploit the full potential of the fiber laser technology.
A competitive edge thanks to concentrated cutting technology on attractive terms. This is the idea behind the new generation of BySmart Fiber. Bystronic’s newly developed fiber laser is aimed at sheet metal processing companies that want to establish themselves on the market with a cutting system that opens up the full potential of fiber laser technology: a high parts output, a wide spectrum of applications, suitable automation solutions, and all this at an attractive price level.
With the BySmart Fiber, users step directly into fiber laser cutting technology without high investment barriers or lengthy detours. The new machine platform provides excellent cutting results thanks to state-of-the-art Bystronic technology. To achieve this, the BySmart Fiber's performance package focuses on what makes a fiber laser attractive to users: Cutting sheet metal parts as quickly as possible but also in high quality.
Depending on the production spectrum and customer requirements, the BySmart Fiber is available with laser sources of 2, 3, 4, and 6 kilowatts. The 6 kilowatt laser source enables users to achieve a maximum increase in cutting speed. For example, by up to 70 percent compared to a fiber laser with 4 kilowatts when cutting 3 millimeter stainless steel. The speed advantage is even more pronounced in comparison to a 6 kilowatt CO2 laser. Here, the 6 kilowatt BySmart Fiber is three times faster when cutting 3 millimeter stainless steel. Depending on the material and the sheet thickness, the parts output can thus be increased by up to 300 percent.
BySmart Fiber users can process a wide range of materials, from steel, stainless steel, and aluminum, right through to non-ferrous metals, such as copper and brass. This versatile material mix is complemented by comparatively low operating costs and low maintenance requirements. Hence, for users whose range of applications lies in the thin to medium sheet thickness range, this means: faster cutting, lower costs, and higher profit per part.
Bystronic is also opening up the new generation of BySmart Fiber for the integration of versatile automation solutions. Because for many users, automated laser cutting is increasingly becoming the key factor for success. Automation solutions for fiber laser cutting offer a decisive competitive advantage: they increase the capacity utilization of the laser cutting system and reduce the user’s workload with regard to the time-consuming material handling. Both these factors mean that cutting jobs are performed faster and at lower cost.
Users can choose between Bystronic’s loading and unloading solutions ByTrans Cross, BySort, ByTrans, ByTrans Extended, and Byloader. In addition, third-party automation solutions can also be integrated. Depending on the order situation, the Bystronic systems organize the material flow fully and semi-automatically while also offering sufficient space at the laser cutting system to process smaller orders manually whenever required.
