Bystronic Achieves Major Milestone With First U.S. Assembled Fiber Laser Cutting Machine
Bystronic's first-ever laser cutting machine assembled at the new facility in Hoffman Estates IL has rolled off the line. This important milestone strengthens Bystronic's commitment to its customers and to the North American market.
By: Bystronic Inc.
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%. Also, the machines will be 100% 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.
Bystronic will locally source machine components and sub-assemblies as economically practical. They have already identified suppliers for the mainframe, housing, dust tray, laser source, and other components, and orders have already been placed with these vendors. Many of these vendors are current Bystronic customers and will be using Bystronic machinery to produce the parts.
The newly built Hoffman Estates facility will include a leading-edge Customer Experience Center and the headquarters for the Americas market region. It will serve as the hub for Bystronic U.S. business operations including sales, service, training, spare parts, and the refurbishing of used machinery.
With its new Experience Center, Bystronic is now demonstrating the future of sheet metal processing to customers in the U.S. Bystronic will be displaying its entire range of sheet metal processing solutions: the latest technologies for laser cutting, integrated automation and storage solutions, flexible bending systems, tube and profile processing solutions, a software landscape that covers the entire sheet metal processing chain, smart services, and offering customized live demonstrations for customers.
