Bystronic is now producing its BySmart Fiber laser cutting system in the 4020 format, with a capability of up to 6kW laser power and the option to add compatible automation solutions. With the larger format, users can now process sheet metal of up to 4×2 metres on the BySmart Fiber. This increases the productivity of the machine because cut parts can be nested more efficiently on large-format sheet metal and raw material waste is reduced. The larger machine format offers an ideal opportunity to rise above the competition when vying for cutting orders.
Depending on the production spectrum and customer wishes, the BySmart Fiber 4020 is available for selection with varying laser power levels of 3, 4, and 6kW. With the 6kW power level, users increase their cutting speed to the maximum. For example, up to 60 percent in thin 3mm stainless steel compared to a fibre laser power of 4kW. It boasts an even bigger performance advantage over 6kW CO2 lasers. Here, the BySmart Fiber with 6kW goes through thin 3mm stainless steel two-and-a-half times faster. In doing so, the parts output is increased up to 250 percent, depending on material and sheet thickness.
For an expanded application spectrum reaching into high material thicknesses, Bystronic offers the Power Cut Fiber function in the BySmart Fiber’s basic package starting with a laser power of 6kW. Thus, users achieve particularly fine cutting quality in material thicknesses of up to 30mm. This opens up additional possibilities for cutting orders in thick material, in which the visual appearance of cut parts plays an important role.
Bystronic is also opening the BySmart Fiber 4020 for connection to versatile automation solutions—enabling users to increase the utilisation of the laser cutting system to the maximum and reduce time-consuming material handling. Both lead to cutting orders being carried out faster and at a lower cost.
The loading and unloading solutions ByTrans Cross 4020, BySort, ByTrans 4020, ByTrans Extended 4020, and Byloader 4020 are available for selection. But automation solutions from other providers can also be connected. The Bystronic systems fully or partially automate organisation of material flow depending on the order situation, and additionally offer sufficient free space around the laser cutting system for manually processing smaller orders at any time.
