Tactical CNC

Postby 43fabguy » Fri Aug 12, 2016 4:41 pm

Any one out here got any opinions on Tactical

I Recently purchased one 5x8 water table with a hypertherm 125 able to cut up to 1" mild steel
This is my first plasma table and it cuts amazing but I feel there are certain features that should be waaaayyyyy different



any opinions would be greatly appreciated

What features would you change? They look like decent tables. I'm interested in them since the company is located in St. Louis, MO, and I only live 20 minutes away. Do you know if the tables are manufactured in St. Louis, or are their headquarters just here, and the tables are built somewhere else? I would like to buy a table from someone local.

The tables are built by a major industrial cnc manufacturer. Tactical is a sales branch that sells and supports the machines. They are great machines.....and fit into the light industrial market....a bit above the entry level cnc table market. Heavier construction, complete fume control, great cnc control system and integrated height control....as well as a good software package. Jim

I was thinking either them or EZCut.

it seems it is incapable ( I assume due to design of the software ) to just cut a line
it is only designed to cut objects

I have tried over and over to make just a cut from point a to point be
say like I only want to cut a sheet in half or some drawing just has a fine line in it such as a wrinkle in a dogs fur

We recently purchased a 5x10 Downdraft table from Tactical and I have to say that the software seems to be more trouble than it is worth! Unfortunately the software that they provide is the only one that is capable of controlling the machine.

I am using Autodesk Fusion360 to draw all of my parts and then exporting the DXF files to the Tactical software when we are ready to cut.
