Gaining the edge in today’s competitive market requires intelligence derived from data and the ability to act upon information to improve processes and machine performance. If two companies have the same equipment, what then becomes their competitive differentiation? It first starts with the people they employ, their skill level and  [ Read More ]

Hiring CNC Machine Operators is Challenging Is your company having a hard time filling CNC machine operator positions? How ‘smart’ is the CNC control software on your current machines? Are your machines over 10 years old? Are they complicated to operate because they are using older technology that requires specialized  [ Read More ]

Over the past few years, progress for most of the computer and machine system hardware available on the market today has been defined by modest incremental leaps in technology. Software advances, on the other hand, have been marked by larger technological leaps. Software applications or “Apps” as they are often  [ Read More ]

In this age of digital information it is prudent to utilize the data that is generated by machinery to monitor fabricating and manufacturing processes in real-time and then analyze the collected data to determine opportunities for improvement. In order to stay profitable and consistent in the manufacturing environment, real-time measures  [ 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 ]

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 ]
