Plasma torch height control, ??
« on: December 11, 2009, 06:55:08 PM »
  I'm building a 4x8 plasma table, got it running with a regular z axis but no torch height control yet.  Does anyone have a schematic for a THC and connections to a Hypertherm 600 ?

 I'm running mach 3 with a C10 bob , Larken Viper95 servo drives and Keling 34 motors and 500 line encoders. It runs really smooth with Mach . One question, can rapid accelleration be set separately from contouring acceleration , or is it fixed.

you may want to read this http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,10339.0.html and there are others. Also a ton of info on cnczone. Look also at section 12.2 in "Using Mach2 Mill" in the docs downloads.

Cheers
