Fibernomics is an all-encompassing economic principle and the key to a competitive advantage in today’s sheet metal fabricating environment. As with most economic principles, there is a basic premise, or formula, that defines the principle: Lower Operating Costs + Faster Processing = Greater Profit & Earnings Potential Fibernomics begins with the  [ 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 ]

Differentiation is the key to creating new opportunities in manufacturing and sheet metal fabricating. As competition remains fierce, the only way to stand out is to do things differently, better, and more efficiently than anyone else. One way to ensure differentiation is to have equipment that can process larger and  [ Read More ]

Press brakes have a specific bending length and a specific tonnage that are suited for the range of parts that each company processes. Companies normally utilize press brakes that can process a diverse range of materials to maintain flexibility in their production scheduling. Usually this means having a ten or  [ Read More ]

The addition of a Fiber laser into the sheet metal fabrication process is going to create a re-alignment of the status quo. You now have a tool that can produce substantially more parts per hour, so naturally all of the supporting systems will feel the effects. Optimizing the front-end order  [ 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 ]
