Anyone dealt with dyna cnc? any feed back?
Just wondering if theres any others that have bought a machine from them?. What were your thoughts on it?
I have a dyna cnc table. I have not used it that much, I started a house project and things are so busy here that I have to do all the work myself.
I'm happy with it I would have liked to have a manual with it but they are fairly new and are working on things. The coustomer service has been good they fixed problems with the machine and know what they are talking about.I like the fact that if they closed the doors tomorrow that I could still get info on my software and table. When I researched mine I found that they had some good features and seemed the best bang for the buck. I have cut steel and all the software works good and the machine works well. I have a milwakee 3.5 horse router for it (plasma/router table) that I have yet to use just got my floor poured in my shop so it should be back up running soon.
They use the electronice from cand cnc to build the tables and it works well. The THC works good and this is a feature that I liked that some other tables did'nt have. Like I said I have'nt used it that much but what I have used works good. www.pcsplasmacutting.com is another in calagary and they build lots of tables for industry and know thier stuff go to thier web sight and have a look. A 4x8 table was about 10,000.00 last spring. You could add toms THC as they use mach 3 also. I wanted a 5x10 and thiers was 24,000 and dyna's was 15,000 I think.
It was between dyna, PCS and the dynatorch system are the three I liked best dynatorch seems to have experience actually using thier machines and dyna seems to know how to built them. But dyna uses proven systems with lots of outside support so you really don't have to pay for tech. support. And you have software that thousands use. One I would stay away from is practical 'cause of all the horror stories. My 2 cents.

How The Table Is Soon.
I have a DynaCNC and it has been a great machine. Bottom line is : I make money with the table. They have great people to deal with.
First of all happy holidays and prosperous new year.
i like know some user of dynatorch in spain or Your France. to interchange opinions
I want to buy a table of 6x10 with oxyfuel and accesory of pipes.
I request me opinions about the functioning of this accessory and of the quality of court(cut) of the machine.
Another doubt is if with a few basic knowledges it is possible to make work the machine and repair it in case of breakdown, since I live far enough and is to begin problem that I have.
All the years the machine can work without giving problems and as it is the cut in unoxidizable steel they are other doubts that I have.
DynaCNC is made by:
Monroe, Washington (close to Seattle WA) USA
DynaTorch is made by:
Paducah, Kentucky (other side of the US)
Very different designs and features between the two brands.
Lost In CNC World!
I am new to the forum. I have been researching cnc machines for months. Quite frankly, I'm still lost! Thought I had it narrowed down, but after reading some posts here, I'm not so sure. I realize that as with any piece of machinery, there are going to be problems, either mechanical, electronic, software or user inexperience or a combination of all. Hopefully some of you more experienced users can help with a few questions:
We are General Contractors building rustic cabins and timber frame homes. Our specialty is making our own cabinets and we add our own touch with rustic hardware, gussets for timber joining and anything else we or our customers can think of to add a rustic look. The look of wrought iron and metal mixed with wood and rock gives a stunning finish look to most rustic projects. More and more our clients are asking for personalized signage, entrance gates, etc., which has sparked my interest in the cnc machines. We need a machine that can do both metal cutting and routing. I have heard conflicting stories on using a combo machine. It would appear that taking into consideration that when cutting metal the torch never touches the material and therefore can glide along it's tracks freely, while when routing material the spindle blade is actually being pushed through the material.
1. Will this create inaccuracies or slack in the machine as wear takes it's toll?
As most of us are, we are on a budget and can not afford two machines to perform seperate tasks at this time.
2. Metal frames vs. extruded aluminum. Obviously metal is stronger and more rigid than aluminum. Different companies build with different material. Any opinions here?
3. Some companies are offering the option of building your own frame and just buying the motors, gantry and controller/software from them. What kind of headaches are involved here? Obviously you could save money on shipping as well as material, but the drawback is that they could not test the machine on your table! It also gives the manufacturer a scapegoat in that potential problems would more than likely be blamed on your table! (Just a thought)
Any input on these issues is greatly appreciated as this will be our first experience with cnc. And also any suggestions as to which manufacturer might fit our needs best. I had pretty much narrowed it down to Dynatorch, Dynacnc, and Torchmate. Dynatorch does not offer a router configuration with their machines, but they seem to be the most knowledgeable when it comes to plasma cutting. Plus they are within a reasonable driving distance from our shop even though it would be an overnight trip.
Thanks in advance for any help!
I can understand your confusion. The first thing I will state is what a friend of mine said to me a long time ago:
"Internet Opinions are worth exactly what you paid for them, Worthless!"
If you choose to believe everything you read on the internet, this forum or others, good or bad, I have a bridge to sell you.
My suggestion is to go visit the factories, see the production lines, ask a lot of questions, maybe visit some of the customers sites, and then make your decision. See if they offer training on-site and at their place of business. It sounds like you will need training.
I do not recommend relying on the advise or opinions of people that make comments on the internet using alias names. You don't know who they are, what they have on their agenda, and their knowledge. There are a bunch of scams going on today and these people sure sound and talk a good story.
