EZ Vision Automated CNC MIll


Hardinge is proud to offer The Bridgeport EZ Vision Automated CNC Mill. EZ Vision is a 2 or 3 axis control that comes factory-fit (not retrofit) with power feeds on the Series I Standard Mill. The control is easier to operate than a conventional CNC, and far more productive than manual machining. The 2D contouring capability lets you machine angles and radii without a rotary table. It offers tremendous time-savings on repetitive work like bolt hole circles. Batches, and "one-off" jobs go faster and setup time on repeat batches is greatly reduced. A 3rd axis option is available to further enhance the machine's productivity.

The EZ Vision CNC Mill greatly increases your milling productivity by allowing you to easily switch from manual to automatic operation at your discretion. With its powerful canned milling and drilling cycles, as well as a graphics preview feature, the EZ Vision allows operators to easily verify the machining program before running the part. It can even memorize machining moves as you make them, letting you machine the first part manually and then "teaching" the machine to automatically run the remaining parts.
