  • High Productivity ByBend Smart 160 Press Brake
    Faster and more precise with even more "smart" options, ByBend Smart increases flexibility and in particular the speed of bending. With numerous functions and options, this new machine offers the decisive plus in bending technology at an attractive price....

  • ByBend Smart from Bystronic offers innovative bending technology and
    numerous new "smart" functions at an affordable price. This is its recipe for success. From the very onset, Bystronic designed this press brake to offer a performance package with
    intelligent functions that enable users to produce parts of high quality and at low cost.

    Enjoy more flexibility

    One of ByBend Smart’s flexibility-enhancing features is the “Daylight and Stroke
    . This feature, which is available with the purchase of a new machine,
    extends the daylight and stroke from 18.9 to 22.9 inches. The additional 3.94 inches
    boosts the ByBend Smart’s flexibility by as much as 30 percent because this means that
    it can use taller tools, enabling users to produce parts with taller bending sides. This is
    particularly useful when bending boxes and drawers.

    Efficiency Booster and Energy Saver options

    The “Efficiency Booster” option increases not only the bending speed but also the ram
    retract speed by up to 20 percent over conventional ram retract speeds. “Energy
    option: The machine’s main drive is only active when the machine is actually in
    operation, reducing energy consumption by 40 percent

    “Fast Bend M” option

    The “Fast Bend M Safety System” option consists of a laser safety system that allows
    the upper beam to move almost all the way to the part that is being processed at rapid
    movement speed. The high-precision laser sensor allows the ByBend Smart’s control to
    reduce the upper beam’s speed from up to 7.0 inches per second (rapid movement
    speed) to 0.74 inches per second (bending speed) just before reaching the metal sheet.
    The laser safety system functions like an intelligent brake assistant that permits the
    machine to move at a higher speed for longer. This offers users a speed advantage of
    up to 30 percent.

    “Electric Lifting Aid” option

    During the bending process, the “Electric Lifting Aid” option increases material
    handling flexibility and operator ergonomics for large parts up to 220 lbs per unit. The
    control synchronizes the movement of the lifting aids with the actual bending process
    and the vertical movement of the upper beam.

    Intelligent “ByVision Bending” control for simple operation

    When it comes to bending technology, simple operation is a key factor for many users.
    Load the bending plan, set up the machine, and start bending – this is precisely what the
    ByBend Smart and the “ByVision Bending” user interface offer. ByVision Bending is
    included in ByBend Smart’s basic version. Operators launch all the bending processes
    with just a few swipes of the finger on a 22-inch touch screen. ByVision Bending has an
    extensive database that includes the parameters for all the common types of sheet
    metal and bending tools. Depending on the material thickness and bending angle, the
    user interface determines the ideal bending process and suggests suitable tools.

    “Active Hydraulic Crowning” feature

    The “Active Hydraulic Crowning” feature ensures high-precision air bending results.
    This unique function is only available in this form with press brakes from Bystronic.
    Thanks to extremely accurate pressure sensors and ByBend Smart’s control system, the
    ByVision Bending recognizes the parts' length and position as well as other material
    properties. ByVision Bending control enables the ByBend Smart to automatically ensure
    the ideal distribution of the bending force across the entire bending length without
    requiring the operator to deal with complicated details. This results in precise and
    consistent angles across the entire bending length.

    Stop by our Booth A1326 for ongoing demos of the new ByCut Smart press brake and other press brakes in the Bystronic product line.

    Sheet metal processing job shops and OEMs benefit from this with a broad application spectrum. In addition to steel, stainless steel, and aluminum, non-ferrous metals can also be processed with world-class cutting quality.

    Upgradeable with clever features

    ByCut Smart is extremely flexible. Smart features such as the Nozzle Control Tool (NCT) and KerfScan, the Parameter Wizard, and cutting with MixGas, in addition to more laser power, ensure higher cutting quality as well as increased productivity. 

    NCT & KerfScan: The NCT provides automatic nozzle centering at the beginning of a cutting plan and after collisions. As a result, manual interaction from the operator is no longer required, reducing time expenditure by up to 95%. Centering is completed within seconds, rather than minutes.

    KerfScan also serves as a monitoring function, thus increasing process reliability. Through greater autonomy, customers benefit by producing less scrap due to incorrect settings, poor material quality, or hot sheet metal, which reduces waste costs and makes production with flame cutting more cost-effective and reliable.

    All of this ensures consistently high process quality and a high degree of autonomy in lightly-manned operations plus a marked reduction in waste.

    Parameter Wizard: In only a few minutes, the Parameter Wizard determines the perfect parameters for you with N2 and MixGas for steel with thicknesses of 4 to 15 millimeters. The Parameter Wizard optimizes the entire cutting process and ensures its smooth functioning, which guarantees the customer optimal utilization and improved production time without downtime.

    MixGas: MixGas combines the benefits of O2 and N2, and is an alternative to cutting with pure nitrogen or oxygen. Cutting with MixGas massively improves cutting quality in thicker steel at increased cutting speeds. Additionally, MixGas contributes to improved cutting results with varying qualities of steel. The higher the laser power, the greater the advantage.

    More loading capacity thanks to a new shuttle table concept

    A further benefit speaks in favor of the new laser cutting machine: With the new shuttle table concept, users load their ByCut Smart up to 40 millimeters over the entire surface on one table. This means operators achieve a significantly higher maximum load on the shuttle table compared to the status quo of 30 millimeters and thus cut significantly thicker parts.

    Better access

    The new ByCut Smart has a new sharp and modern look that matches the machine's performance. Furthermore, the new design significantly increases user-friendliness. Different access door configurations provide perfect flexibility in the design. This includes front and/or side access as well as multiple windows with direct views of the cutting process. Overall, the new design offers better access to the interior space as a result.

    Completing with automation

    For many users, automatic laser cutting is a criterion that is decisive for success. Automation solutions for fiber laser cutting provide clear benefits: They increase the utilization of the laser cutting system to the maximum and also relieve operators of time-consuming material handling. Both of these lead to cutting orders being carried out faster or more economically.

    The Bystronic software and automation solutions optimally integrate ByCut Smart into your sheet metal production.

    Loading and unloading solutions can be selected in a variety of layouts and degrees of automation. The Bystronic systems organize the material flow fully and semi-automatically according to the order situation, additionally providing enough flexibility to process smaller orders manually as well.

    ByCut Smart 3015 proves itself to be robust and stable, guaranteeing low operating costs: A fast cutting process and extremely low maintenance requirements guarantee a high machine uptime and longevity, and thus more profit per part.

    Demonstrations of ByCut Smart 15kW with ByTrans Modular / BySort material handling automation will be ongoing during FABTECH - Booth A1326.
