With Bystronic’s help, MKW is getting started in laser cutting. The Austrian family-owned enterprise invested in highly modern machinery for sheet metal processing. For laser cutting, they chose a ByStar Fiber with the automation solution ByTrans Cross.
Higher speed and an expanded cutting spectrum. The ByStar Fiber from Bystronic is being enhanced with a 12 kilowatt laser and the new "BeamShaper" function. In addition, a newly designed cutting head ensures consistent cutting quality up to a sheet thickness of 30 millimeters.
With the “TiltPrevention” assistant function, Bystronic is increasing process reliability in the field of laser cutting. The intelligent function enables users to create cutting sequences that minimize the risk of creating protruding parts in the sheet. This reduces the disruption of cutting processes and downtime caused by cutting head collisions.
What opportunities is the vision of the smart factory opening up for sheet metal processing companies? What role will machine tools and software play? And how is Bystronic supporting users on their path towards the smart factory? Bystronic CTO Dr. Christoph Rüttimann answers these questions in an interview with the German trade magazine Industrie Anzeiger.
