lasers continue to expand to higher power thresholds, one of the key
performance factors is the ability to harness the speed benefits from the
higher laser power through improved machine performance capabilities. At the
core of the improved machine performance is the ability of the motion system to
respond without compromises to the speed requirements from the higher laser
power, and the ability of the motion system to maintain its accuracy and
rigidity even with changes in direction while cutting at high speeds. To
facilitate speed, the ByStar Fiber laser cutting machine employs a linear drive motion system for
both X and Y axes that removes any mechanical limitations from the drive system.
Innovative Cutting Bridge Design
One of the keys to achieving exceptional acceleration dynamics is reducing weight while increasing rigidity. Bystronic’s innovative triangle cutting bridge on the new ByStar Fiber provides both. The triangle cutting bridge design enables the ByStar Fiber to take full advantage of the increased speeds generated by the high fiber laser powers and the linear drives, while maintaining axis rigidity during accelerations. The triangle shape enables a 40% increase in acceleration over square profile designs, a 60% increase in torsional rigidity and a 25% reduction in overall profile weight.
Additional innovations include a large front side access door that allows the operators full access to the cutting table from the side and the Detection Eye edge detection camera system that accurately finds the edges of the sheet within seconds.
The Bystronic ByVision Cutting control interface with full 22” HD touch screen intuitively guides the operators through the operation process, and since its touch screen interface is like modern smart phones and tablet interfaces, it enables operators to quickly and intuitively learn the control interface.
The Cutting Head
Harnessing the full laser power and focusing it accurately on to the work piece for each material type is the function of one of the most important elements of a Fiber laser cutting system, the cutting head. The Bystronic engineered cutting head not only has the capability to automatically focus for each material type and thickness, but also regulates the cutting beam diameter. Regulating the size of the focused beam enables the thinner materials to be cut with a narrow beam and the thicker materials to be cut with a wider beam, improving speeds and overall edge finish.
The ByStar Fiber laser cutting machine is available with either Fiber 3000, Fiber 4000, Fiber 6000, Fiber 8000 or Fiber 10000 laser source. (Shown: Fiber 6000 laser source)
The triangle cutting bridge design enables the ByStar Fiber to take full advantage of the increased speeds generated by the high fiber laser powers.
With Power Cut fabricators can realize thick part material cutting up to 1.180-in. stainless and aluminum. (available with 6kW - 10kW laser power source)

About Fiber laser technology
Fiber lasers are the newest development in laser cutting. They use a monolithic fiber-to-fiber design that eliminates the need for optics, laser gases and gas turbines found in traditional CO2 lasers. They are significantly more efficient than CO2 lasers, generating twice as much power from half of the electrical input power.
The economic benefit of the Fiber laser includes utilizing processing speeds that are two to five times faster than CO2 laser while using only half of the operating cost.
