Laser cutting software Vision is an optional software program offered by BITO that is designed to work with Proel laser cutters. Combined with a video camera, this program gives a laser cutter the added capability of cutting complex and detailed shapes at high speeds. It works with the LaserBridge machine and galvanometric laser-cutting equip- ment such as the Spartacus. Although the LaserBridge machine can contour cut most objects, it gets its direc- tion from the accompanying digitizing and laser cutting software. The capability of a laser bridge machine can be expanded by adding a peripheral bridge roller or bridge board along with a camera and Vision software. It can then cut, etch or engrave jobs that are not appliqué-related.
