In order for the latest super-versatile jet PC-24 of the Pilatus family to take off, over 10,000 different individual parts have to be assembled at the competence center for structure assembly operations. A customized storage system from Bystronic helps to master this logistical challenge in an efficient manner.
Germany’s first electric car factory sets new standards
The world’s largest car manufacturer is getting ready for the future. Over the next few years, Volkswagen will make a radical transition to e-mobility, and the Volkswagen plant in Zwickau, Germany, will play a key role in this process. With the ID.3 model, the blueprint for the new generation of electric cars is being created here. The bending experts from Bystronic are also on board.
The energy transition can only be achieved by improving efficiency
How energy is generated is the subject of extensive debate. But how it is used is hardly ever discussed. Yet efficiency measures are indispensable in achieving the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies. The German efficiency researcher Alexander Sauer knows how industry can make its contribution.
Sheet metal processing: When automation pays off
The German trade magazine “MaschinenMarkt” put this question to industry experts and asked them about the criteria, materials, opportunities, and limits of automation. What is their advice to the industry? The magazine interviewed specialists from a number of suppliers. Thomas Dörig, Head of Solution Center, was given the opportunity to present Bystronic’s point of view.
Shaping innovative technologies from the outset
Automation and industrial image processing are two fields of strategic importance for Bystronic. The combination of the two technologies is crucial for the optimization of the manufacturing processes of sheet metal processing companies. With its investment in the startup LIP Automation, Bystronic is positioning itself to play an active role in shaping key technologies of the future.
An ecosystem for the sheet metal processing industry
The future belongs to networked manufacturing. For Bystronic, however, the frequently quoted smart factory is just the beginning. The goal is to create an ecosystem that networks sheet metal processing companies with customers, suppliers, and shipping companies. The benefit for everyone involved: greater transparency and efficiency along the entire supply chain.
Out of isolation, into the network
Industrial companies traditionally develop innovations on their own. However, more openness is needed to take advantage of the opportunities offered by digitization. Together with partners, Bystronic develops networked solutions for sheet metal processors. Because only those who look beyond the horizon can realize the vision of the Smart Factory.
A partnership that generates innovations
The strategic partnership with IPG Photonics is strengthening Bystronic’s innovative capacity: Together, these two technology pioneers are developing the next generation of fiber lasers.
Bystronic achieves major milestone with first U.S. assembled BySmart Fiber laser cutting machine
Bystronic achieves a major milestone in the USA as the 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 providing locally assembled machinery to reduce overall lead time, installation time, and import costs.
Step-by-step approach to becoming a digital champion
Medium-sized sheet metal processing companies are resolutely tackling digitalization. But what can be optimized? How best to automate? And what should be networked? These questions can only be answered through expertise and experience. The roadmap for the future has to be developed within the framework of a cooperative partnership. Bystronic helps its customers to make profitable use of the opportunities presented by new technologies.
A focus on technology: Bystronic launches the digital magazine Naratek
New technologies offer a wealth of fabric for stories. The focus of the digital magazine Naratek is on telling these stories in an unexpected and visually rich manner. The initiator of the bilingual platform, the Swiss industrial company Bystronic, made a conscious decision to remain in the background.
Flexible bending automation: more powerful than ever
For a long time, automation on demand did not exist for sheet processing. Bystronic opened the door for it, and with the Mobile Bending Cell 80 is bringing a compact and powerful bending solution to the market that enables both automated and manual bending.
