Looking For A Platemarker Set Up

Postby Thumper » Thu Dec 18, 2014 5:42 pm

Does anyone have a plate marker set up for a plasmacam table? Or better yet would anyone be willing to build me a set up? I'll pay whatever it's worth to ya meaning I'll pay your shop rates for you to do it plus the equipment needed. I figure it'll be cheaper to pay to have it done by someone that's done it before verses my screw ups trying to get it right :) lol I've never even seen one set up so I'm clueless as to how to go about it... Have cash or I'm sure I could come up with some type of shop equipment as trade bait.. Or I have thousands of cut files I'll share plus cash for the materials used. I'd like to try one out on the small table leaving the large table for cutting. Holla :) lol

You can pay a lot for a prefab because the parts cost a lot. Or you can shop ebay and save some serious cash. An air slide, an air scribe and a bracket off your plasma table is all it takes.

I have$100 in my scribe setup, the commercial kits cost up to$2800 .not sure what software your table runs or what post processors you have.

Silly question: What is a Plate Marker? :?
(1) Samson 510 CNC plasma table - Used as a plasma cutter
(1) Samson 510 CNC plasma table - Used as a router table
(1) PlasmaCam DH2 4x4 CNC table - Plasma and router, etc. (Portable!)

That's not Plasmacam's. Someone just put it on theirs. I'm surprised it works considering. The carriage will lift up when the torch is driven into the metal. I called Plasmacam and they said they were discussing making one but if they do it will be a while. And if they do, yes they'd want a bunch of money just like everything else they sell. I personally am not sure how long the Plasmacam would hold up to routers or scribes so don't use it for that.
