New Laser Cutting System Increases California Chassis Production and Manufacturing Capabilities

Addition of Bystronic laser cutting and automation systems addresses commitment to meeting increasing demands of high tolerance, quick turn manufacturing.

Anaheim, California - February 15, 2011 - California Chassis (Cal Chassis), a global manufacturer of telecommunications and network operations center racks, enclosures, and cabinets, today announced it has significantly increased its production and manufacturing capabilities through the addition of leading-edge Bystronic laser cutting and automation systems to its cadre of in-house fabrication equipment to meet the growing demands for high tolerance, quick turn manufacturing. This enhancement in capabilities further expands the company's engineering, electromechanical integration, prototyping, and end-to-end production services to its military/aerospace, IT, medical and telecommunications customers.

According to Cal Chassis, the addition of Bystronic's laser cutting systems is another step in the company's ongoing plan for expansion of capabilities, reflecting Cal Chassis' mission. "This state-of-the-art high-speed laser cutting enhancement represents our unwavering commitment to continuous improvement and superior performance to benefit our customers," said Cal Chassis Vice President of Sales William Doyle. "The addition of the Bystronic system reinforces our leadership as a complete manufacturing services provider, particularly by enabling us to completely address project-driven prototyping, where uncompromising precision and immediate turn around capabilities are prerequisites."

Cal Chassis has installed the BySprint Pro 3015 with a ByTrans Extended intelligent loading and unloading system. The Bystronic Bysoft program drives the BySprint Pro, permitting optimal system utilization and efficiency. This also enables Cal Chassis to generate cutting programs and manufacture a product from virtually any file format, including physical drawings. Refined nesting strategies maximize material use, increasing the customer's ROI.

BySprint Pro 3015
A unique high-speed laser cutting system for the highest operational and economic efficiency, BySprint Pro 3015 leverages a wear-free solid state and magnetic-bearing turbine 4.4 kilowatt laser source - the ByLaser 4400. Additionally, the system features high machine dynamics that perhaps make it the most efficient laser cutting system ever produced for thin sheet metal applications, addressing aluminum, stainless steel, as well as cold-rolled steel. Although the BySprint Pro has been optimized for thin sheet metal processing, thick plates can also be processed, as well as precision etching and engraving.

ByTrans is the intelligent solution for unlimited loading and unloading performance across the entire spectrum of sheet thickness. Furthermore, ByTrans ensures that all standard sheet metal formats can be processed. Loading and unloading ByTrans takes just 60 seconds. As result, the BySprint Pro 3015 never has to wait while the cut sheet is being unloaded. The short cycle time, which is independent of the thickness of material, translates into near immediate delivery times.

Bysoft is the user-friendly and high performance CAD/CAM solution for Bystronic cutting and bending systems that optimizes system utilization. The portfolio of modules includes Bypart, Bywork, Bytrace, Plant Manager Cutting and 3-Axes CAD/CAM, enabling the conversion of virtually any file format.
