Bystronic has introduced the ByStar Fiber with a stronger 12-kW fiber laser enabling use of the BeamShaper option, which is designed to ensure consistent cutting quality on varied materials up to 1.125" in thickness. With the stronger laser, the machine's cutting speeds increase by as much as 20% when laser cutting with nitrogen, compared to the previously available 10-kW laser source, thereby increasing productivity with sheet metal ranging from 0.125" to 1.125". 

A slimmer design for the new cutting head decreases the possibility of contact with cut features during the cutting process. With fewer components, the new design also decreases maintenance and operating costs because the integrated technology is better protected from contamination. Optimal cooling features promote consistent cutting performance during long cutting operations at high power.

The BeamShaper function is said to improve cutting quality with steel sheet metal as thick as 1.125". This option can be selected with the purchase of a new ByStar Fiber or retrofitted at a later date. BeamShaper enables adjustment of the laser beam profile to cut greater sheet thicknesses and variable sheet metal qualities.
