When talking about automation in the manufacturing process some people talk about material handling, but this is not the only process to consider. Automating the materials With today’s high-speed laser cutting technology, the automation cycle time is critical to ensure that the material handling system will not pace the laser.  [ Read More ]

Speed and Consistency is the hallmark of today’s fiber laser cutting machinery and their capacity to process a vast amount of sheet metal on a daily basis. In order to maintain this consistent pace of production it is critical to have some form of material automation. While operators can be  [ Read More ]

When talking about automation in the manufacturing process often people talk about material handling, but this is not the only process to consider as I have learned from my customers. Automating the front-end processes (those that involve order entry, scheduling, material planning and inventory, engineering and programming) is critical to maintaining  [ Read More ]

When considering material automation for laser cutting systems, there are different levels of material handling that can be implemented to provide varying degrees of efficiency. The base level of automating the process is a system to load raw material with no automated part or skeleton removal. The drawback to this  [ Read More ]

The “push” demand is created by the Fiber laser as it produces up to four times more parts than a conventional CO2 laser, depending on power levels, directly impacting press brake and other downstream capacities. At this point it does not make sense to have stacks of cut parts at  [ Read More ]

Satisfying the Production Capabilities of Today’s Fiber Laser Cutting Machines The economic principle behind Fibernomics is Lower Operating Costs + Faster Processing = Greater Profit and Earnings Potential. But Fibernomics isn’t just the economic advantage of owning a Fiber laser; it’s the overall economic advantage that is created when all  [ Read More ]

The economic principle behind Fibernomics is Lower Operating Costs + Faster Processing = Greater Profit and Earnings Potential. But Fibernomics isn’t just the economic advantage of owning a fiber laser, it’s the overall economic advantage that is created when all of the pull and push demands are satisfied to meet  [ Read More ]

During the recent Fabtech show in Atlanta I had the opportunity to speak with many people visiting the Bystronic booth. While many were very interested in seeing our BySprint Fiber with new 6kW fiber, I noticed there was considerable interest in our software offerings. When I asked people about the  [ Read More ]

I recently asked one of my customers what was the biggest contributing factor to his cost per part? He very quickly said; “that’s an easy answer, it’s the cost of the material itself. More than 50% of the cost per part is directly related to the material cost and even  [ Read More ]

“Time is money and I can’t afford to waste either one” is a common comment amongst business owners. Having the right software and equipment is critical to maintaining the efficiencies and productivity of a business. From the time an order is received until the time it is delivered, it is  [ Read More ]
