The company says there are numerous benefits for the larger format. For instance, material usage can be maximised when using larger sheet, as more parts can be nested with greater efficiency, meaning there is less material wastage. Bystronic’s BySoft 7 process software supports users with nesting procedures.
A further advantage is that more parts can be produced per cutting cycle before the next sheet is loaded, so productivity is raised. In addition, the variety of applications is increased, as larger single components may be cut without having to interrupt the machine in-cycle to reposition the sheet.
