The new high performance ByStar Fiber Laser cutting machine achieves the competitive differentiation sought by leading edge manufacturers. The  [ 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 ]

Over the last several years many technological changes have affected the sheet metal fabrication industry. Many fabricators I have spoken with are amazed at the technological leaps that have occurred. I am frequently asked: How are other fabricators getting started with adapting to these new technologies? To begin with, Fiber  [ Read More ]

If you’ve owned a CO2 laser cutting machine then you are familiar with the periodic maintenance required for optics, beam path bellows, beam and nozzle alignments, not to mention oil changes and filters for the vacuum pump. The time required to fulfill these maintenance tasks equates to a significant portion  [ Read More ]

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 ]

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 ]
