Bystronic has introduced 15-kW power for the company’s Bystar Fiber 3015 and 4020 fiber laser cutting machines. With the new 15-kW laser output, the ByStar Fiber cuts steel, aluminum and stainless steel in thicknesses from 20 gauge to 1.5 in., and brass and copper in thicknesses to 0.75 in. The boost in precision cutting power enables fabricators to expand production capabilities.

web-based platform has been introduced by coordinate measuring machine
(CMM) manufacturer LK Metrology, Inc. to help production departments
monitor and control inspection activities around the clock.
welding (RW) has evolved into an automated process known for its high
production rate for joining different metal alloys together without the
need for additional material, such as filler metals. Still, RW has its
challenges. To address the wide range of workpiece variations during RW,
shops must be able to monitor multiple process variables
simultaneously, and instantly react to counteract the effect of the
variations. This is readily achieved with properly equipped adaptive
RW-process controls. Such controls automatically adjust to the
conditions of each weld by detecting unwanted conditions.
The decision to replace or upgrade from an outdated ERP system can often be a difficult one, because employees grow comfortable with it. However, it’s probably weighing you down. With the speed at which technology is advancing, manufacturers can no longer afford to continue using outdated ERP systems. Read on to learn why a modern ERP system built for manufacturing business growth may be the most important step you take for the success of your company.
Eagle Fiber Laser, a Power-Tech brand, has released what it claims to be the world’s first 20-kW fiber laser cutting machine, able to cut 0.75-in.-thick steel at 120-160 in./min. and providing reliability for 24/7 operation.
