Bystronic has completed assembly of its first laser cutting machine at its newest facility in Hoffman Estates, Ill. The completion signifies Bystronic’s commitment to its customers and the North American market by providing locally assembled machinery to reduce overall lead time, installation time, and import costs, the company claims.
The BySMart Fiber 3015 laser cutting machine, with 8kW and 10kW fiber laser power, is the first to be locally produced.
The next generation BySmart Fiber will be shipped virtually fully assembled to most locations within North America. This process will reduce the installation time at the customer’s location by as much as 65 percent. Also, the machines will be 100 percent inspected and tested in the U.S. plant before shipment, which ensures that production will be up and running shortly after the installation is complete. Customer delivery lead times will also be reduced significantly.
The current plan is that from this fall 2020, the next generation BySmart Fiber 4020 will also be assembled at the U.S. facility.
