Barnshaws maximises laser cutting capacity with new Bystronic BySprint Fiber machine

We work with a lot of metal plate - our press braking capacity is one of the largest in the world

Barnshaws Plate Bending has expanded its laser cutting capacity with the installation of a new Bystronic BySprint Fiber machine. This addition means Barnshaws offers one of the largest laser cutting capacities in the UK, with the ability to process ferrous and non-ferrous metals in sheets of up to 12 x 2 m.

The BySprint Fiber laser cutting unit specified by Barnshaws operates at up to 6 kW of laser power, which enables the machine to cut stainless steel up to 30 mm thick, mild steel up to 25mm and aluminium up to 30mm. Operated via touchscreen, the fiber laser can produce twice as much power from the same amount of current compared to a CO2 laser, making it highly efficient. The 12 x 2 metre variant is the largest machine offered.

Ian Clark, Commercial Director at Barnshaws, was keen to discuss the new machine: “At Barnshaws, our machine capacity is what sets us apart from the competition. The new BySprint Fiber provides us with a winning combination of high precision and large capacity. We work with a lot of metal plate - our press braking capacity is one of the largest in the world - so adding a flexible, high-speed laser cutting machine to our shop floor greatly enhances our sheet metal services. We’re a leading provider to the construction, marine, architectural and transport sectors – so our processing speed and product quality is very important.”

Fiber laser cutting is inherently efficient, ensuring that sheet metal can now be delivered by Barnshaws on reduced lead times. Increased laser cutting capacity and reduced power usage also translates to increased cost-effectiveness, benefits which can be passed on as increased value to customers, especially on larger orders.
