The II-VI Highyag division of II-VI, a provider of laser material processing tools, complements its portfolio with application specific consulting services
Swiss sheet metalworking machine manufacturer, Bystronic, has introduced a new online service, called ByOptimizer, that creates optimal cutting plans for accurate and cost-effective laser cutting.
Sheet processing lasers are constantly becoming faster and more powerful, but that does not guarantee profitable cutting. A large part of the profit margin when profiling sheet metal parts is determined by the efficiency with which parts are grouped, or nested on each sheet.
