The high-performance Bystronic SSC cutting head excels with maximum precision in both thin and thick sheets and profiles.Click image to enlargeBystronic’s new 15kW fiber for Bystar Fiber 3015 and 4020 improves speed, precision and flexibility for sheet metal processors.

Thanks to the new laser output of 15kW, the ByStar Fiber cuts steel, aluminum, and stainless steel with a thickness from 20 gauge up to 1.500 inch, and brass and copper up to .750 inch with high precision.

The technological leap from conventional 3kW and 12KW systems to the new 15kW level is tremendous and this increased power and range of materials enables sheet metal processing companies to further expand their production capabilities.

On average the cutting speed is increased by up to 50 per cent (when cutting with nitrogen) compared to a 10kW laser source. The 15kW laser output now also enables extended applications in stainless steel and aluminum up to 1.5 inch thick and thus offers maximum flexibility for customer orders.

The high-performance Bystronic SSC cutting head excels with maximum precision in both thin and thick sheets and profiles. The variable telescoping cutting head automatically adjusts the focal length and spot size, and the focal position is set automatically for each material.

Its BeamShaper function ensures smooth cutting edges and high operational reliability across the entire range of carbon steel materials. This function can be selected as an option when purchasing a new 15kW ByStar Fiber or added later as an upgrade. With the BeamShaper, the beam profile is adapted for cutting thicker materials providing for smooth cutting edges and increased speeds in carbon steels from .750 to 1.125 inch.

Its ByVision Cutting control interface has a 21.5-inch touch screen and making operating the machine is as simple as using a smartphone.
