ByCut Star More efficient fiber laser cutting machine with brainpower

ByCut Star 4020 two doors title

Fast & intelligent The new ByCut Star fiber laser cutting machine

High cutting speed, an intelligent cutting process, and a new design – this is how the new ByCut Star presents itself. The fiber laser cutting machine ensures even higher quality, and with an optimized cutting process, precisely and reliably processes the following:

  • Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Stainless steel
  • Brass 
  • Copper
BySmart Fiber different material

30 kW of laser power Shift into a higher gear now

Our fiber laser cutting machine provides you with up to 30 kilowatts of laser power. With this, you can cut mild steel with sheet thicknesses between 6 mm an 15 mm twice as fast compared to cutting with 15 kW and MixGas. Starting at 20 mm, the speed more than doubles. Shorter piercing times for sheet thicknesses starting at 15 mm additionally accelerate the process. 

ByCut Star 30kW

Smart functions Power is nothing without intelligence

Give your cutting process additional drive with smart functions such as: 

  • Intelligent Cutting Process (ICP)
  • Parameter Wizard

In doing so, optimize your entire cutting process. The Parameter Wizard option determines the perfect parameters in a matter of minutes for steel between 4 and 15 mm with N2 and MixGas. This can save you valuable time and additionally accelerate your production.

High Laser Power

A high laser power increases productivity, improves cutting quality, and allows even thicker sheet metal to be machined economically. An essential component for high-power cutting is the right cutting head.

Intelligent Cutting Process

Increase your productivity: The cutting process is stable thanks to comprehensive process monitoring.

Cutting Head / Protective Glass

Precision & speed – using the Bystronic cutting head, you can machine thin and thick materials with the highest quality. The integrated changing system also allows fast maintenance of the protective glass. 

MixGas

With a mixture of nitrogen and oxygen, we combine the benefits of each cutting method. Excellent cutting quality, as with pure oxygen, combined with the high cutting speeds of pure nitrogen.

Parameter Wizard

Use the Parameter Wizard to determine the optimum cutting parameters in a matter of minutes and achieve a lower cost per unit.

NCT & KerfScan

The Nozzle Control Tool (NCT) makes it possible to center nozzles quickly and reliably, as well as monitor the nozzle state. KerfScan checks the cutting process when flame cutting steel, detects problems, and solves them. This ensures a stable process without operator interaction.

BeamShaper

The manual or automatic BeamShaper in the cutting head helps when the material quality is poor. Improves cutting quality and increases process stability when cutting medium and thick mild steel.

ByPos Fiber 

ByPos Fiber automatically sets the focus position according to the material and its thickness. The focus position is optimally matched to the process. 

Spot Control

Depending on the sheet thickness and the material, Spot Control automatically adapts the focal point to it. 

Detection Eye

More precision: Using a camera system on the cutting bridge, Detection Eye recognizes the exact position of the inserted sheet metal in a matter of seconds and supports the operator during the preparation for cutting.

Automatic Nozzle Changer

High process reliability and low preparation time – in just 15 seconds, the fiber laser changes nozzles based on the cutting plan. Less effort for more productivity. 

HMI / Cutting Plan Editor

Copy, delete, rotate, move, and add – the editor makes it possible to adapt the existing cutting plan in just a few steps. 

Machine Size

The right size for every material and application – you can get our machines in various sizes. 

HMI / Cutting Plan Editor

As easy to operate as a smartphone. The intuitive HMI makes it easier to operate the machine, thereby increasing productivity

The editor makes it possible to adapt the existing cutting plan in just a few steps. 

Preparation for N2-Generator

Stay independent of gas suppliers – for a consistent gas supply and cutting quality.

Rotary Axis

Quickly and easily switch between laser machining of sheet metal and tubes. 

Tilt Prevention

The software function prevents collisions with tipped parts and supports the automatic sorting process. The cutting plan is optimized to prevent tipping of cut parts. 

Cut Control Fiber

The integrated sensor in the Cut Control Fiber makes it possible to interrupt the cutting process in case of cutting problems. Other functions make it possible to handle the material to be cut and the machine responsibly. These include process monitoring during cutting with nitrogen, monitoring the piercing process, or recognizing the exact position of the sheet edges.

Intelligent Cutting Process

Increase your productivity: The cutting process is stable thanks to comprehensive process monitoring.

NCT & KerfScan

The Nozzle Control Tool (NCT) makes it possible to center nozzles quickly and reliably. KerfScan checks the cutting process for steel, detects problems, and solves them. This ensures a stable process without operator interaction.

MixGas

With a mixture of nitrogen and oxygen, we combine the benefits of each cutting method. Example: You improve cutting quality when cutting thicker steel.

HP Shop Air

With this function, you achieve a lower cost per part and cut sheet thicknesses of 3 mm to 40 mm with compressed air.

Preparation for N2-Generator

Stay independent of gas suppliers – for a consistent gas supply and cutting quality.

Rotary Axis

Simple laser machining of complex and simple geometries such as sheet metal and tubes.
