Vision 55 is a new network compatible numerical control system from ESAB Automation for portal cutting machines. As well as supporting all conventional computer interfaces and Ethernet or LAN network connections, it can also be connected via Bluetooth and even the internet for remote worldwide maintenance.
Running on Windows XP, Vision 55 is characterised by its simplicity of use and user friendly design, characterised by its low reflection LCD screen, eight position joystick, dynamic hand wheel and large buttons.

The design of the Vision 55's system software is separate from the control of the machine and the operation panel. This has allowed it to be equipped with a wide range of standard functions. These include plate alignment, magnifying glass, speed and repetition display, process progress, automatic gentry alignment, program rotation and scaling, user defined setting of file paths.

Its integrated cutting database allows for the implementation of fully automated production cycles with all processes controlled by Vision 55, eliminating the need for additional manual settings. A dynamic cutting speed regulator is included so that cutting results, especially on corners and tangential transitions, can be regulated and therefore compensate for different parts of the cutting process.

Alongside Vision 55, ESAB has also introduced the Vision 52 Controller operating on Windows CE 5.0 and offering a similar range of features. Full details are available from ESAB Automation Limited, Crown Way, Walworth Industrial Estate, Andover, Hampshire, SP10 5LU, Tel: 01264 332233, Fax: 01264 332074.
