New Enhanced features include:

Virtual Fence™ is an industry first, a dual zone machine safety proximity sensor that will automatically slow and then pause the machine if anyone or anything gets too close. It then re-starts the cut job exactly where it left off, protecting the welfare of staff and assuring uninterrupted production, without the restrictions of e-stops, pressure mats, and light guards.


ViZeo™ is Blackman & White’s revolutionary registration mark recognition technology that allows for fast graphic and file reading and faster cutting, with exceptional accuracy. Boasting the one-pass registration mark scanning system no longer will cut speeds be restricted by ‘one at a time’ reg dot or low-resolution error-prone reg reading. ViZeo™ reads all the dots in high resolution from the moving gantry, so preproduction cutting time is dramatically reduced.


Successful training is the key to a positive user experience.  Blackman & White offer training in advance of installations, as well as additional on-site software and operational training to ensure a smooth transition to full production especially when new to cutting automation.


Every new cutting machine PC has remote support software installed, which enables diagnostics of the machine to be inspected by engineers over the internet. Using remote support the majority of issues can be resolved; meaning downtime of the machine is kept to a minimum, therefore avoiding the need for engineer visits and prolonged disruption to production.
