Bystronic's ByStar Fiber10kW machine with a rotary axisClick image to enlarge

Bystronic has introduced an integrated rotary axis for its ByStar Fiber laser cutting machine, giving it tube processing capabilities.

The operator simply inserts the tubes that are to be processed through a hatch on the side of the machine housing or directly through the sliding door on the long side of the machine. Thanks to the sliding door on the long side of the cutting area, ByStar Fiber users always have unlimited access to the parts that are to be processed. This facilitates both the set-up for tube processing jobs and the fast unloading of the completed cut parts.

The standard version of the new tube processing upgrade enables tubes with a diameter of between 1.25 and 12.5 in. and a variety of lengths to be processed. The standard scope of delivery also includes the tube cutting software module. This module is an expansion for the BySoft 7 programming software. It allows users to design parts for tube processing, input existing CAD files, and edit them. Thanks to the intuitive software design, cutting plans for tubes are created in no time at all.

To process longer tubes, Bystronic offers a mobile upgrade, the rotary axis box. Easily attached to the ByStar Fiber, the rotary axis box enables tubes up to a length of 10 feet to be fed in through the hatch on the side of the machine housing for processing.

The rotary axis box enables the precise positioning of long tubes and provides reliable shielding against laser radiation. When not in use, the rotary axis box can detach by the machine operator in just a few simple steps. When laser cutting tubes up to 20 feet in length, users can expand the rotary axis box with an additional extension box. Upon request, Bystronic offers this extension box as an upgrade.
