The BySprint Pro 3015 high speed laser-cutting system combines an efficient Bylaser 4.4-kW laser source and high machine dynamics for cost-effective, productive laser cutting, says manufacturer Bystronic. The machine’s economic efficiency largely stems from the ByLaser 4400 laser source’s use of wear-free, solid state power supplies and a magnetic bearing turbine. In addition to the efficiency of the laser source, lower electrical power consumption results from automatic switch-off of the excitation when the protective door is open or the machine is on standby.
The machine is also equipped for compressed air cutting. With a 3.75" cutting head, cut times on thin sheet metal can be reduced by 15 to 40 percent compared with a 5" counterpart. While the laser cutter is designed for processing thin sheet, the power of the laser source enables it to cut thick material as well, the company says.
