Bystronic

Bystronic will present its expanded ByStar Fiber laser cutting system with a rotary axis for tube processing. The new function enables users to switch between flatbed laser cutting and tube processing in just a few simple steps.

The standard version of the tube processing upgrade enables tubes with a circumscribed circle diameter of between 30mm and 315mm, and a variety of lengths to be processed. When purchasing a new ByStar Fiber, it can be now be equipped with an integrated rotary axis.

The standard scope of delivery also includes the tube cutting software module. This module is an expansion for the BySoft 7 programming software. It allows users to design parts for tube processing, input existing CAD files, and edit them. Thanks to the intuitive software design, cutting plans for tubes can be created in no time at all.

In order to support fast set-up times for tube processing, Bystronic has integrated an assistant function into the ByVision cutting user interface. This assistant guides the machine operator through the set-up of tube processing jobs. Every set-up and operating step is visualised on the ByStar Fiber’s touch screen.
