This is a Hobby sized Plasma/Dremel routing cutting table. 4 feet by 4 feet. It is a fully functional and an accurate Plasma cutting table.Youtube Video click here cut video IS Included?
The X axis is a single NEMA 23 stepper motor running on a steel gear track (Very Accurate)
The Y axis uses two independent NEMA 23steppers and also run on steel gear tracks.
The Z axis is is a single NEMA 23 stepper motor running on a nylon gear track
All the axis carriages run smoothly on sealed bearings and will last a very long time.
The Black box in the pictures is the PC/CNC controller we have designed. It is a complete CNC solution in one box.
It contains the following hardware.
Micro PC with Intel Atom cpu, 2 gig mem, 160- gig HD, VGA Video port. parallel port connects to CNC controller also in the box.
Software: Windows 7, Mach 3 Trial(setup and configured for use) Sheetcam Trial, With this setup you can import any DXF file and Sheetcam will generate the G-code and Mach will run the table.
PC power supply. Runs the micro PC board only.
24 VDC 6 Amp power supply. Runs the CNC controller (separate CNC power switch on front panel).
4 Axis stepper controller. rated for up to 2 AMPS per stepper. This table uses far less than 2 amps per motor.
Controller also has inputs for limit and home switches. No switches are included it is easier to just set soft limits in Mach.
PC power switch on front for PC ON/OFF and a seperate switch for 24v CNC power.
Four AXIS motor connectors. We are using X, Y, Z and A connections.
The three steppers have wires with matching and labeled end that plug into the controller.
The controller also has a connector for the torch ON/OFF relay. We use Output 1 in Mach3 for torch. A simple switch modification on your Plasma machine will enable this. Some plasma machines have terminals for this. I will assist buyer with information on how to do this.
Setup support for initial assembly.
one year limited mail in warranty on all the electronics.Whats Not Included?
The Plasma cutter machine. I use the Harbor Freight 40 amp. Must be an auto start machine not touch start.
The Dremel router in the pictures
table to mount the machine to. In the pictures you see a table built
from wood 2x4's. This was to demonstrate a low cost way to mount the
mechanics. Build one as you see fit.
The Monitor, keyboard and mouse.
The computer/controller is included but it is less expensive for you to
buy these components locally.
The MACH 3 License. MACH3 is
installed and configured for this table. It is running in DEMO mode and
will cut the test file provided. Mach is approx. $150 to license.
Water Table -- Not required but keeps the dust down. Plans available.
Every PC has a simple test file that can be cut to test your setup. We also include detailed setup information and some training videos.We use Bobcad for our machine Bobcad allows you to draw the part and create the g-code file for Mach. Bobcad costs approximately $800. You can also use free cad software like DraftSight to create the part then use Sheetcam to turn the DXF file into g-code. There are also many other softwares that you can use but we setup using Mach3 as the cutting application. Here is a PDF document explaining the software options do offer paid support for CNC engineering if you need additional assistance.(Mach, Sheetcam, Bobcad)We also have used the Low cost torch height control from candcnc.com It is not included in this sale but we have information on how to wire it into the Harbor Freight plasma machine.Shipping will be flat $100 to lower 48 states. We will ship all the components via UPS ground. (4 packages)Please feel free to ask questions and I will post answers on the sale listing.All equipment comes with a limited one year warranty. The CNC controller is sensitive to short circuits do NOT plug or unplug the motors while CNC power is on. If you happen to blow a channel we have info on how to fix yourself or you can ship to us for repair.We currently have a one week backlog in orders. We will ship within 7 days of payment via Paypal. Local pickup will avoid shipping charges. Located in Virginia Beach
