The usage of fiber laser in manufacturing of truck trailers is a major trend in the truck trailer manufacturing industry. It is proven that usage of fiber laser doubles the productivity of trailer manufacturer's metal cutting process. The advantage truck trailer manufacturers have by using fiber laser is that they can have a higher extent of in-house control over trailer production and save the expense of putting work out to sheet metal subcontractors. Another advantage is that they can optimize the processes of prototyping and design processes and bring new products to market faster. Yet another advantage of the fiber laser is that machining is much faster, while being cost-effective. Trailer manufacturer Indespension, at it’s factory in Bolton, Lancashire, England, replaced it’s ageing CO2 laser-powered machine with a with a Bystronic ByStar Fiber 6520 fiber laser profiling center, after which their productivity doubled.
