    Default Go Torch portable CNC table

    Looks like a good CNC start table which can be taken to the jobsite.

    weldonwelding I think it's a cool machine too, seems like it's pretty straight foward machine with easy learning curve software. Good entry level machine for sure.

    looks like a mini plasmacam to me. smaller and green instead of blue. for some reason i dont trust a company that sells three different size machines under 3 different company names. i own a dynatorch table and they sell all different sizes under 1 roof.

    That machine uses Plasmacam controls and software.
    It;s small 2x2 surface size is designed to compete with the Torchmate 2x2 table. Torchmate has sold a ton of these small 2x2 machines. The GoTorch machine is superior to the Torchmate in that is uses servo motors which are superior 2 way communication motors compared to the one way communication stepper motors that the Torchmate 2x2 uses. The gotorch also comes with z axis standard. The Torchmate Z axis is an option on its 2x2.

    The dynatorch tables look nice. Now if I could just find someone close with one before I drop a chunk o change. That go torch looks decent, but 2x2 is so limiting... Good for portable work I guess. I've only used a homemade table running stepper motors. Eh, it was okay. IMO building a table is the easy part. It is interfacing all the rest of the junk that can make or break the setup.

    Hey Jim, do you know how units like the gotorch that use hand held torches trigger the plasma on and off? I have done some reading and I can't find it. Thanks.

    I'm more of a Fred Flintstone CNC machine type.

    You wire it into the trigger switch wiring inside the machine. The PC video manual has a pretty good list of machine specific directions, as well as instructions to figure out and wire just about any machine there is. It is not that hard.

    Yes....they just have a simple two wire interface that has to be spliced into the torch trigger switch circuitry. The output of the GoTorch machine closes a set of relay contacts that does the same thing as activating the trigger switch on a hand torch. The go torch also has two more wires that connect to the DC voltage output inside the plasma cutte as well.....it monitors the voltage for use with the optional torch height control functions.
