The Technology Twins encompass the BySprint Fiber 3015 laser cutting machine and the Xcite 80 E electric press brake.

The fiber laser, with more than three times the cutting speed in thin sheet metal compared to a C02 laser, demands equally high speed performance from bending technologies to take advantage of the increased throughput capabilities. The bending machine can bend sheet metal parts up to one eight in. (3.2 mm) thick. It offers two and a half times faster speeds and acceleration compared to conventional hydraulic press brakes, says the company.
