Swelco, the sub-contracting and sheet metal fabrication division of Altron Communications Equipment Limited, one of the leading suppliers of CCTV mounting equipment, has placed an order with Bystronic UK Limited for equipment valued in excess of £800,000. The order comprises a Byspeed 3015 laser cutting system equipped with ByTrans, the intelligent solution for loading and unloading; a rotary axis for an existing Bystar laser cutting system; and two high-specification Bystronic Beyeler Xpert press brakes.

Sixty per cent of Swelco’s work comes from external customers whilst the remaining 40 per cent is on behalf of Altron. The company uses a wide range of equipment including an existing Bystronic Bystar 4020 with 4 kW laser source as well as two lasers cutting systems supplied by another manufacturer. In order to allow Swelco to expand into new markets and to consolidate its current activities such as flame and jig cutting, the company took the decision to retrofit a rotary axis to the Bystar system with a tube processing capability up to 315 mm diameter. As  part of its expansion plans Swelco has also decided to replace the two older lasers with a Byspeed laser cutting system with automation.
