Torchmate 4X8 CNC Plasma Table

These photos show the Torchmate 2 4'X8' CNC plasma table. The fist image is from slightly above and shows the overall table layout. The next two images show the table in operation. The CAD/CAM software allows for precise designs with kerf compensation to keep parts within a few thousandths of an inch.

Plasma is not LASER, so the precision does not get much better than a few thousandths. Thin metals can accumulate dross along the botton of the cut. Also, small protrusions into the cut path tend to get very hot due to prolonged exposure to the arc. This prolonged exposure can cause noticeable ablation. It's great for art and welding projects but not so good for making watches.
