ESAB SMARTBEVEL™ TECHNOLOGY OFFERS A COMPLETE INTEGRATED SOLUTION FOR EASIER AUTOMATED PLASMA BEVELING

4 December 2017

ESAB Welding & Cutting has released SmartBevel™ Technology for easier automated plasma programming and accurate bevel cutting with minimal operator intervention. SmartBevel includes beveling data and geometric compensations necessary to cut V, X, Y, and K bevels on mild steel from 6- to 50-mm thick. Unlike competitive systems, SmartBevel integrates all bevel compensations into the CNC to simplify bevel programming and enable operators to quickly and easily fine tune the program at the machine.

Many plasma beveling systems are under utilised because of programming issues. SmartBevel seamlessly integrates plasma, CNC, software, height control, bevel head and gantry functions so users can take full advantage of their plasma system and maximise productivity.

Most beveling systems require programmers to compensate for torch angle, torch height, kerf width and cutting speed in the part program or nest. As a result, operators are prevented from making any necessary adjustments required to produce accurate parts. To make adjustments, the operator must go back to the programmer and have the program or nest updated. This can waste significant time and presents an obstacle to producing quality parts.
 
SmartBevel Technology improves bevel cutting in two ways. First, SmartBevel delivers more bevel data for more bevel geometries. It offers a high level of automation for the programmer by incorporating best practice bevel cut sequences into ESAB’s Columbus III CAD/CAM programming and nesting software. Second, SmartBevel puts all bevel compensation data into the CNC, not the programming software. Therefore, the part program or nest represents the actual desired part geometry, without bevel compensations. This eliminates the need for trial-and-error programming. Instead, operators can quickly and easily make any necessary adjustments at the machine. Operators are empowered to produce accurate parts quickly and more easily than with competitive systems.

SmartBevel Technology works in conjunction with ESAB plasma bevel cutting systems equipped with a Vision™ CNC controller. To maximize bevel cutting productivity, ESAB recommends using SmartBevel with its new DMX Automated Plasma Beveller, a next-generation beveling system delivering significant performance improvement through a simple, compact design. The DMX Beveller provides high reliability, enhanced safety and ease-of-use (view DMX video). For more information, visit esab-cutting.com/smartbevel/.
