Essay

'ByVention 3015' is the world's smallest laser cutting system machine for standard-sized sheet metal. It is based on an innovative and economically advantageous concept of material flow and processing. The individual components of which the machine consists melt into a compact unit, but remain clearly readable to the outward eye. The additive structure of the system not only facilitates access to all cutting and working areas; it is also an advantage for purposes of container transport. Particular attention has been devoted to safety aspects in the design of the machine.

Comment by the nominators:
'
ByVention 3015' is a convincing example of pragmatic and efficient design in machine engineering. Features deserving emphasis are the logical arrangement of the functional units and the user-friendliness of the system.
