U.S. Assembled Fiber Laser Cutting Machine with 8 kW/10 kW Fiber Laser

The first fully-assembled BySmart Fiber 3015 laser cutting machine at the Hoffman Estates USA facility.

"Bystronic has achieved a major milestone in the USA-the first-ever laser cutting machine assembled at its new facility in Hoffman Estates, IL, has rolled off the line," said a company spokesperson. "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."

By assembling laser cutting machines in the USA, Bystronic is further developing its presence and operations network. "Specifically, the next generation BySmart Fiber 3015 laser cutting machine, now with 8 kW and 10 kW fiber laser power, is the first machine to be locally produced in the three major market regions of the world: North America, Europe and Asia, thus strengthening Bystronic's global product availability and supply chain diversification," said the spokesperson.

The next generation BySmart Fiber will be shipped virtually fully assembled to most locations within North America. "This process will reduce the installation time at the customer's location by as much as 65%," said the spokesperson. "Also, the machines will be 100% inspected and tested in the U.S. plant before shipment, which ensures that production will be up and running shortly after the installation is complete. Customer delivery lead times will also be reduced significantly."

The current plan is that from fall 2020, the next generation BySmart Fiber 4020 will also be assembled at the U.S. facility.

The assembly area is laid out as a "lean flow" line. Using this concept, the base machine frame starts at one end of the line, is assembled in stages, and the finished machine exits at the end of the line, much in the way cars are assembled. Components and sub-assemblies are brought to the production line in a just in time fashion to complete the machine.

Bystronic will locally source machine components and sub-assemblies as economically practical. Many of the vendors are current Bystronic customers and will be using Bystronic machinery to produce parts.

The newly built Hoffman Estates facility features a Customer Experience Center and the headquarters for the Americas market region. It serves as the hub for Bystronic U.S. business operations including sales, service, training, spare parts and the refurbishing of used machinery.

Currently, Bystronic employs approximately 160 employees in the U.S., with a notable increase planned within this year and beyond as more products are added for U.S. assembly. The total area of the new building is 164,894 sq. ft. The total area for machine assembly and parts warehousing is 103,393 sq. ft, the Experience Center is 30,721 sq. ft. and the total office area is 30,780 sq. ft.

A grand opening for the new Experience Center and headquarters for the Americas is scheduled for September 16 and 17, 2020.
