How to choose your cutting machine


Do you want to cut something great and improve your efficiency with CNC cutting machine?

Are you looking for the high quality plasma/flame machine to cut your metal sheet or pipe and tube at best price?

Are you finding German or American suppliers’ offer SO HIGH?

How about a person helps you to solve all the problems and leave you to sit back and relax?

Hi, I’m Toni and working for Sean CNC Equipment co., ltd. I know you are looking for the high performance CNC cutting machine at best price, and the first problem you need to solve is to find the correct machine type suitable for your needs.

If you are looking for a machine to cut metal plate/sheet with thickness of 0.5 mm - 20 mm, then CNC plasma cutting table – SuperFast is one your best choose. (Off course SuperFast can cut metal plate/sheet more than 20 mm. 0.5 mm – 20 mm is the best range)

So things you need to consider before buying a plasma cutting machine


Essential components

Every CNC machine from the lowest cost and smallest to the largest shipyard machine must have some form of the following components.

CNC control.   The brains of the entire machine, converts cutting program into electrical signals that direct the direction and speed that the machine cuts at. Also signals the plasma cutter, height control and other peripherals how and when to operate.

Mechanical components.   Each machine has to have moving components such as a gantry (long axis), a torch carriage and a Z-axis (up and down) that manipulate and move the plasma torch to produce the cut parts desired.

Fume Control System.   Plasma cutting generates a lot of fumes and smoke. Every machine requires either a downdraft fume control or a water table control.

CAD and CAM software.   CAD -- computer assisted drawing or drafting -- lets you draw the exact parts that need to be cut. This electronic drawing of parts is then input to the CAM – computer assisted machining or manufacturing -- software, which “post processes” the drawing, adjusting the size to compensate for the kerf width of the plasma cut, adding lead-ins and lead-outs to the drawing so the plasma piercing process has minimal effect on the finished part. The CAM file is then entered directly into the CNC control, where it is converted into electrical signals that control the entire cutting process.
