Bystronic’s (Hoffman Estates, IL) ByStar Fiber Laser can now be equipped with an integrated rotary axis for tube processing. The standard version of the new tube processing upgrade enables tubes with a diameter of between 1.25 inches (3.175 cm) and 12.5 inches (31.75 cm) to be processed.
To process tubes, the operator inserts the material through a hatch on the side of the machine housing or directly through the sliding door on the long side of the machine. The product also includes the Tube Cutting software module, which is an expansion of the BySoft CAM programming software. It allows users to design parts for tube processing, input existing CAD files, and edit them.
In order to process longer tubes, Bystronic offers a mobile upgrade, the rotary axis box, which enables up to a length of 10 feet (3.05 m) to be fed in through the hatch on the side of the machine housing for processing. The rotary axis box enables the precise positioning of long tubes and provides reliable shielding against laser radiation. When it is not in use, the rotary axis box may be detached from the machine.
