Some equipment and some options in models and styles of fabrication, manufacturing or steel working machines are really not all that different from model to model. One may have a slightly different feature than another, but they are all generally designed to complete the same work with the same level of efficiency. This makes buying this equipment relatively easy.
The same is not true for all of the companies you will find offering any CNC plasma table for sale. Knowing not only what you want, but what you will need in the future will be critical elements to keep in mind, but there are a handful of other considerations as well.
Fine Touch and Speed for Detailed Designs
There are some types of plasma cutting tables that are designed particularly for thick plate. These systems have a larger and heavier table, as well as a heavier gantry, the component that will move up and down the table to create the shape designed. The heavier this component is, the less detail and precision that the CNC plasma table for sale will be able to produce at higher rates of speed.
This doesn’t mean these larger plasma tables can’t provide detailed work, but the speed will be less. Understanding the balance between the two, and selected the right overall system for the typical work required will also be a central point to consider.
Design specifications of any CNC plasma table for sale can either make the table more practical to use and easy to maintain or it can make it more of a challenge to have in the shop or facility.
In all applications, a table that has a proven design, including a design that is designed to be low maintenance is critical. Issues with dust getting into the system and creating a sludge that impedes the movement of the gantry are a very big issue with some models.
Some tables have efficient one-piece types of systems that completely eliminate this issue. These systems offer superior life with less risk of downtime and repair needs, even when used in continual use types of operations.
Benefits to consider that make the table easier to operate include automatic torch height control and active torch collision protection that extends a full 360 degrees. Ease of operation, including simplified software that allows for modifications and simply one button push operations will definitely need to be considered as key factors in making your final selection.
