Sheet metal contractor Accurate Laser Cutting (Oldbury, West Midlands, England) has announced a £700,000 (over $886,000) investment in the UK's first 10kW fiber laser. With its phenomenal processing speeds and newly improved processing capabilities, the 10kW Bystronic ByStar cutting system sets a new benchmark in laser cutting and represents Accurate's second major investment in a Bystronic fiber laser in 18 months.

The high-performance equipment is capable of cutting aluminum and stainless steel up to 30mm thick, mild steel up to 25mm, 15mm brass, and 12mm copper. It can also clean-cut mild steel up to 15mm thick, which is beneficial to customers who require an oxidation-free edge on their parts.

This latest investment completely replaces Accurate's CO2 cutting equipment at its manufacturing premises, where the laser cutting facility is now fully equipped with two state-of-the-art Bystronic fiber lasers—one 6kW BySprint 4 × 2m system and their latest investment, the 10kW ByStar 3 × 1.5m system.
