Bystronic manufactures most popular CO2 metal cutting lasers, those are industrial machines that are costy and require lots of maintenance. As laser machine shows its age more parts needs to be replaced and some parts are no longer manufactured or extremely expansive. LaserCutZ has capability to design aftermarket retrofit parts to be used in various industrial machines. Our laser repair services are not just limited to fixing machines as we can fully design and build new machine from scratch. For this Bystronic capasitive sensor head we kept original metal body and designed and integrated our own electronic pcb board. Such retrofit allowed to reduce cost of part replacement and also improved quality of part as original Bystronic had manufacturing defects and was failing all the time for client.
Client in Bumbo, Brooklyn had laser head collision causing head mount to bend a bit which lead to improper cuts. Unfortunately that laser machine was made by Bodor and company likes to make all parts custom instead of using industry standard components. When we tried to get replacement parts from them they said its no longer available and they don’t even produce that machine model (even though machine was made in 2019 which is 3 years ago)
To handle laser repair we reverse engineered part and manufactured it ourselves. Luckily this is just a few hours trace and part can be milled on CNC so for LaserCutZ it was not to complex to make our own custom part especially as we build custom machines. Assembled and machined laser head L bracket looks like this (see blow)
We got parts modified and ready to install at architectural company in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Laser heads are modified to supply additional airline to the top of the lens. This modification to laser machine will allow pushing derbies away form lens tube and as result laser lens will stay clean so laser can operate longer without preemptive maintenance. If you industrial equipment need service and repairs in NYC area, please contact LaserCutZ.
