New 10 Kilowatt Fiber

Posted on 24 May, 2017 at Laser Cutting

More power means thicker and faster.

Arrow Laser is proud to announce the acquisition of the very latest in laser cutting technology - introducing the Bystronic Bystar 10 Kilowatt Fiber.

Released in Europe late last year and exhibited in the recent Austech Exhibition in Melbourne in May, the 10 Kilowatt Fiber is the world’s highest power laser cutting machine available currently. This laser cutting machine can cut a wider variety of materials, faster and thicker than once ever thought possible. This machine is the only one in Australia and in fact the first in the Southern Hemisphere. It is currently being installed in our new facility in Campbellfield and will be online in late June.

The new 10 Kilowatt Fiber will broaden Arrow Laser’s capabilities as well as lowering lead times. This will be our 4th laser cutting machine and will complete the circle of versatility in terms of our laser cutting services.

Below is a list of features of our new Bystar 10 Kilowatt Fiber:

  • 10 Kilowatts of laser power – highest available
  • Lowest electricity consumption per Kilowatt – high efficiency
  • Low maintenance due to simple fibre optic power delivery – less down time
  • Linear drive motors – higher acceleration, speed and accuracy
  • Automatic nozzle changer – faster material type changes
  • High speed table transfer system – faster sheet changes
  • Integrated CCTV camera - remote viewing of cutting progress

Below is a list of materials that can be cut and their NEW maximum thicknesses:

  • Stainless Steel (grades 304, 316, 430, 2205): up to 30mm
  • Aluminium (grades 5005, 5083, 2024, 6061): up to 30mm
  • Mild Steel (grades 250, 350, Cor-ten): up to 25mm
  • Specialist steel (chrome molybdenum, manganese, spring steel, Bisalloy): up to 25mm
  • Brass: up to 15mm thick
  • Copper: up to 12mm thick

This machine truly remarkable and must be seen to be believed. It is a game changer in the laser cutting industry and is in a class of its own.
