SmartCycle Technology increases cutting productivity through total CNC and plasma system integration. ESAB's Vision T5 CNC, Smart Voltage Height Control, m3 Plasma® system and Columbus® nesting software work seamlessly together to create a highly automated system that enhances plasma cutting efficiency and reduces cycle time.
Faster Cycle Time, Higher Productivity
SmartCycle Technology eliminates unproductive time and motion. By avoiding initial height sensing where possible and eliminating a full torch retract after every cut, overall cutting time can be dramatically reduced. As a result, productivity gains can be significant, especially when nesting smaller parts with multiple holes.
SmartCycle Technology offers:
- Easy operation because all cutting tools are controlled through the Vision CNC. Tight integration makes operation easier, and allows the CNC to automate more of the system.
- Reduced cycle time brings higher productivity without tedious modifications to parts and nests.
- Automatic optimization without operator or programmer intervention. The Columbus software automatically optimizes the program codes. The Vision T5 CNC, Smart Voltage Height Control and m3 Plasma® system work hand-in-hand to produce the highest quality parts in the shortest time possible.
SmartCycle is a completely integrated system technology exclusive to ESAB. As the technology leader in machine and process automation and the only total system supplier, ESAB is uniquely qualified to integrate the entire plasma cutting process.
