Vernon's cutting machines use a Windows-based operating system with color icons, 2D and 3D-dimensioned graphics, and network-compatible communications. The cutting software is CAD-CAM compatible with leading design software, and factory service technicians can link to field machines in real time with Internet-based software. The machines range from 2 to 5-axis models, and can cut diameters from 2-84-inches O.D. and the machines' roller beds and conveyor designs accommodate lengths up to 40 ft, with five sizes of machine beds and three computer controls available.
