RE: BYSTRONIC

Well, most Bystronic are faster than Mazak (except HyperGear). Bystronic's machine are maintenance intensive but are better machines. I would say they require a bit more maintenance than a Mazak. We own 3 Bystars ands are very satisfied with these. And Bystronic have above average customer service.

RE: BYSTRONIC

We have had a byspeed for about 1 year and have not had any
problems since install. the machine cuts parts very fast when using rapid parameters. But this type of cutting suits 3mm & under mainly & some jobs up to 5mm. Over this thickness all lasers are I think about simular cut speed for same amount of KW's. Also rapid parameters do not suit every type of job. I think the best thing about bystronic
is the programing system is very simple to use and these options like rapid cutting , pulse cutting etc,the software flows well in production enviroment.
Consumables costs are not excessive,but most rapid cutting would been done with high N2.
Trumpf 3050 will cut sheetmetal about the same speed too.
