ESAB releases automated plasma beveling

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products introduced SmartBevel technology for automated plasma programming and accurate bevel cutting. The technology includes beveling data and geometric compensations necessary to cut V, X, Y and K bevels on mild steel from 6 mm to 50 mm thick. The technology 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. Also, SmartBevel puts all bevel compensation data into the CNC so the part program or nest represents the actual desired part geometry without bevel compensations.
