A factory in Bolton specialising in the production of trailers invests in a Bytronic Fibre laser replacing an old CO2 laser machine has seen productivity double. The company, Indepension part exchanged the old machine with the ByStar Fiber 6520 with a 4 kW fibre laser and a 6.5 metre x 2 metre capacity bed.
Steve Sadler, Indespension’s purchasing director said, “The acquisition of the Bystronic fibre laser helps us to deliver on these aims as well as providing a much-needed increase in production capacity. It also marks our commitment to UK manufacturing, which is an important part of our company ethos.”
The staff at Indespension were trained and entered a full production shortly after resulting in less down-time. The fibre laser compared to a CO2 laser is faster, cost effective and reduces labour intensive tasks that would otherwise cause delays in production.
