    Re: Plasma table recommendations

    I don't have any videos. I don't really do videos. But I can share a couple pics of some stuff I cut out. I haven't done much with the table in a couple months. It's also time to clean the sludge from the water table.

    The JD2 with the hypertherm cutter cuts very well. The Z height works well and the magnetic quick detach is a very nice feature. I dont think you could get a better table for the price.

The interface PC is solid state of which I haven't had a single issue with in 4 years. The gantry is a one piece weldment. The table frame is over built. The stainless water table is impressive. The machine is VERY easy to operate. I really like the user interface software. It has real time control where you can pause the operation and choose your restart point anywhere you want. This is very handy when needing to grab a drop out that tips up in the path of the torch head. It uses SheetCAM which I haven't had any issues with. As with any good cnc system there is a learning curve and you have to be vigilant in learning the details of operation. From CAD to CAM to the table operation. No JD2 doesn't provide CAD software because they make cnc equipment not design software. I use QCAD, Inkscape, and Fusion360.

    I demo'd several plasma tables. I was almost ready to pull the trigger on ArcLight(which is a good option IMO) until I toured the JD2 facility. The tech support is a cut above the rest I believe. They will help you with anything period. I have made a couple dumb mistakes on weekends. Called and left a message and they always call right back. If it was my day off I wouldn't bother but Fred is awesome.
