cnc pipe plasma cutter
« on: October 09, 2013, 05:33:53 PM »
Hi

I'm currently designing a cnc plasma cutter for cutting and profiling pipe.

This cnc will essentially be a 2-axis machine (y and a-axes) with torch height control via a linear drive in the z-axis.

The A-xis will be chuck driven, and as a result, pipe surface speed will change with pipe diameter.

I found a wrapper function for control speeds on the a-axis, but was just wondering if anything had been specifically written for a 2 axis plasma pipe cutter.

I'm pretty new to the programming side of things, I have a pretty good idea of how to go about the mechanical side, but am hoping to learn more about the software side

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Regards

Ben Jansen
