10-kW Fiber Laser Platform Provides High Output
Bystronic’s ByStar Fiber laser cutting machine with 10-kW fiber laser is being shown at FABTECH this month. The company says that the ByStar Fiber’s high machine dynamics and process reliability ensure high parts output and cutting quality with a range of materials and sheet thicknesses. Built entirely for fiber laser cutting, the ByStar 3015 Fiber laser will be shown with the ByTrans Extended automated material loading/unloading system.
Waterjet cutting has carved a legitimate niche in material fabrication. This article looks at the process with an eye toward how waterjet can work for your shop.
At first, abrasive waterjet machines were naturally at home in the fabricating shop. Today, certain models resemble a typical, fully enclosed CNC machine and they fit well in a machining job shop setting.
Machine with abrasive waterjet and control the depth of cut. For the right parts, this fledgling process may offer a compelling alternative.
