When cutting in sheet metal processing, lasers are involved. These lasers generate enormous heat in the cutting area, which must be cooled. To ensure this cooling, our customer Bystronic Laser AG has created a laser cutting head specially developed for this purpose. This cutting head cannot be manufactured using conventionally machined components, or only with great difficulty.
This is where Sauber Technologies comes into play. We use additive manufacturing to create part of the laser cutting head in stainless steel, as this technology favors very complex components. This 3D metal printing is mass-produced and allows the customer just-in-time production with consistent quality.
