What to look for in a plasma cutting machine

Postby T99448877 » Mon Jun 29, 2015 8:36 pm

I read in last month's paper that when choosing a plasma cutting machine the operator should give preference to the following seven key characteristics :-
-Thickness of metal items you wish to cut
-Choose maximum cutting speed
-Portability
-Presence of a CNC software
-Efficiency to withstand dust and smoke
-Servo over steeper Motor
-The machine design
Do you think there is anything other vital thing that they might have left out from this list?

Thanks for sharing that information. You can never imagine how useful it is for me. ;) If you don't mind please elaborate more on what you mean by the last two points. I didn't get them clearly. Thanks in advance.

There exists two types of machine motors available for CNC machines Spritz; the servo motor and the steeper motor. You need to check which one of the two is most suitable for the kind of work you will be engaging the machine in.
