Vision T5c with Stand

ESAB Cutting Systems introduces the Vision T5c Control for retrofit onto cutting gantries.  This updated version of ESAB’s Vision T5 CNC is re-packaged for quick and easy installation in place of existing Vision controls on ESAB cutting gantries.

 

Designed for ease of use and improved productivity, the Vision T5c features an ergonomic, wide-screen layout and an advanced touch-screen interface that offers twice the display area of other CNC controls, as well as unique process control features designed to simplify operation and boost productivity. The large, bright 18.5” wide-format touch-screen features an ergonomic layout with controls positioned for easy access to reduce vertical arm motion and improve operator comfort. Simple up/down toggle switches provide intuitive operation of station lifters. These are easily serviced or added in the field. Dual USB ports are positioned to prevent interference with the operator. The five-wire resistive touch display panel offers unmatched durability, reliability and performance.


The touchable, graphical user interface provides more information and feedback to the operator than typical controls. Important information is always visible, and operating steps are clear and intuitive, guiding the operator every step of the way for enhanced productivity.  The new Operating Wizard guides users with clear, step-by-step instructions, providing simple prompts with limited choices that lead from file selection to starting the cut. This allows even new operators to become productive more quickly. This unique system starts at power-up, simplifying control start-up and machine referencing, and includes steps for torch setup and positioning the machine. The built-in shape library also uses a wizard to simplify part programming of complex shapes and maximize cut quality on small holes and inner contours.


Vision T5c controls from 1 to 12 stations without additional panels and controls numerous axes for variable beveling and rotating tools. Automatic machine referencing makes machine startup quick and easy. Program parking allows cutting of rush jobs without losing your place in a nest. Remote diagnostics using a live connection between ESAB service and your control speeds up trouble-shooting or training.
 

Designed for retrofitting, with matching mounting holes and all electronics built into the operator console, the Vision T5c is quickly mounted in place of older Vision controls, including the Vision 1000, Vision 2000, and Vision PC.  Depending on the original machine’s electrical systems, the Vision T5c is capable of fully integrating all process controls for every cutting or marking tool, making operation quicker and easier for every machine. The Built-In Process Database can simplify cutting tool setup by automatically setting parameters such as cutting speed, kerf offset, and timers based on material thickness, material type and cut quality desired. The operator sees a picture and part number for the torch parts that are needed for both plasma and oxy-fuel torches. All cutting and marking tools can be controlled directly on the touch-screen.
