With the ByStar Fiber, Bystronic presented a world premiere in the field of fiber laser cutting.
At the Blechexpo 2015 trade fair Bystronic unveiled two innovations: the new ByStar Fiber laser cutting system and a technology project for the automation of bending.
Big crowds prevailed at the Bystronic exhibition booth at Blechexpo in Stuttgart. "We were able to welcome more than twice as many visitors to our booth than in previous years. In addition, this year, many visitors had a noticeably more international background," says Oliver Friz, Managing Director of Bystronic Germany.
Bystronic surprised the visitors to Blechexpo with two brand new innovations: a world premiere in the field of fiber laser cutting and an automation solution for bending. With the ByStar Fiber, Bystronic presented a high-end all-rounder for fiber laser cutting. A dynamic powerhouse that enables users to cut thin and thick sheet metal without compromises. With the Xpert 150 press brake, which was equipped with a tool changing system, Bystronic provided an insight into future bending automation solutions. This system is one of several technology projects with which Bystronic will support its customers in the future.
Another topic on Bystronic's exhibition booth was "Industry 4.0". The users' interest in networked process steps is growing. "Many of our customers are thinking about how Industry 4.0 can change their production processes in the future," Oliver Friz explains. With PartID, the Observer, ByOptimizer, and the Plant Manager in BySoft 7, Bystronic already offers various solutions in order to sustainably optimize manufacturing steps in the sheet metal processing business. In addition to the development of further solutions, proximity to the customer is also an important factor. "With our specialists in the fields of cutting, bending, software, and services, we provide our customers with comprehensive advice and look for the best solution for them," Oliver Friz says.
