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 ]

The principle of Fibernomics includes the overall economic advantages that result from owning a high power fiber laser cutting machine. Lower Operating Costs + Faster Processing = Greater Profit & Earnings Potential Fibernomics begins with the powerful BySprint Fiber 6kW. Depending on material type and thickness, BySprint Fiber can reduce  operating costs by  [ 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 ]

Fiber lasers are a game changing technology, but you must also consider factors such as material handling automation to make full use of their productivity. As I visit sheet metal fabrication shops, I am often asked the question “can I use my existing laser automation with a new fiber laser  [ Read More ]

Contributing to Machine Availability As fiber laser cutting machines have become more prevalent, the hidden benefits of using fiber lasers have also become more evident. Maintenance tasks that that would normally consume several hours per month on a CO2 laser have disappeared from the routine maintenance of the fiber laser.  [ Read More ]

While Fiber technology has become all-the-buzz in the sheet metal fabrication industry, one topic that was recently brought to my attention was the confusion regarding Fiber lasers and what is often incorrectly described as a Fiber, the Disk laser. The technology differences between Fiber and Disk Lasers are quite vast.  [ Read More ]

Why feed rate charts do not tell the full story. New laser cutting equipment often delivers faster production capabilities. In order to evaluate these capabilities correctly, it is important to study how they apply in your production. Often engineers are tasked with finding the technical specifications for each of the  [ Read More ]

Key considerations for evaluating a good fiber laser cutting machine. There seem to be new companies offering fiber lasers nearly every month.  Among them are companies I have never heard of, along with companies from other machine tool industries that are marketing a laser machine for the very first time!  [ Read More ]
