What experience do you have with small operators having built their own tables and gantries and using Hypertherms hi-definition plasma sources?
It's my understanding that you're wasting your time if the gantry is not capable of holding very tight tolerances.
There has been discussion on several forums of late about moving up to either Hypertherms HPR or HPRXD technology.
I've sure there have been systems paired with this technology and shop built tables but I'm guessing this is rare?
I would like to be able the step up from my current G3 1650 machine to some form of HPR machine. The issue is whether I buy a complete system v. built a new more high-tolerence gantry and table using servos, etc.
Thank you Jim for your guideance.
