Extra-large format laser cutting system
- June 20, 2018
Bystronic is expanding its BySprint Fiber laser cutting system with the 12020 extra-large format.
This increases laser cutting productivity and the diversity of cutting applications.
With the 12020 format, the machine can be equipped with the Fiber 3000, 4000, or 6000 laser sources, depending on the user’s requirements.
With the new extra-large format, users can process metal sheets up to a length of 12 metres (39 ft) using the BySprint Fiber. This increases the machine's productivity, because large metal sheets allow the cut parts to be nested more efficiently. It also significantly reduces undesirable raw material remnants. offcuts. In addition, large parts as long as 39 feet can be processed without repositioning. Bystronic BySoft 7 process software supports the user in this process with intelligent nesting algorithms.
The new extra-large format also increases the variety of cutting applications on the BySprint Fiber. If required, large-format metal sheets allow large parts to be cut in addition to diverse small parts, without requiring the machine to interrupt the laser cutting process. This provides a competitive advantage that laser cutting systems in the common standard formats cannot offer.
In addition to cutting applications with extra-large metal sheets, the 12020 format also enables smaller sheets to be processed by lining them up on the BySprint Fiber’s long cutting table. Users can simply prepare sufficient raw material in order to subsequently allow the fiber laser cutting system to cut the sheets consecutively without interrupting the cutting process for a longer period of time.
Beside the 12020 format Bystronic also offers the BySprint Fiber in the formats 8020, 6520, 4020 and 3015.
