Willits, CA—METALfx is pleased to announce the acquisition of a new Bystronics, BySmart 6K Fiber Optic 3015, a state-of-the-art fiber laser that cuts up to 5 times faster than a standard CO2. Fiber cutting is widely recognized as the fastest technology to cut stainless, aluminum, copper and brass, the most common metals cut by METALfx. The BySmart 3015 is also highly efficient, operating at half the cost of a standard laser. “Acquiring a fiber optic laser has always been integral to our growth plan,” said Henry Moss, President of METALfx. “Customers are asking for shorter lead times and more capacity-this acquisition helps both.” He added, “Getting the fiber laser is a real game-changer for us.” Stay tuned for another announcement, arriving in April will be a ByTower + ByTrans Cross which will automate loading and unloading of parts. Located in Willits, CA, METALfx is a rising Northern California fabricator of precision metal chassis, control boxes, frames and other custom enclosures for major OEM’s.
