How to Use VTube-LASER to Setup a SOCO Tube Bender

Remember the open house we hosted in our new manufacturing facility? Well, in between socializing, we found some time to record a demo of the VTube-LASER software working with a Faro measuring arm and a SOCO tube bender.

Using the IPC Microsoft Windows controls with the SOCO tube bender, you can connect to the measuring arms using the Supravision protocol.

Thanks to Michael Cone, creator of VTUBE software,  and Joseph Lin our SOCO tube bend programmer, for their efforts in testing the software communication, and links to make Vtube automatic bend corrections work seamlessly.
