In the world of plasma cutting, there are a lot of different features and functions. All metal fabricators have their preference and needs based on their metal fabrication shop capabilities and their previous experience cutting. One thing that must be considered when choosing the right CNC plasma cutting system for your shop is whether or not you want a water table or a downdraft table. A water table provides certain advantages over a downdraft table, such as: a water table does not require a dust collector, does not produce as much noise as a downdraft table, reduces heat, and does not produce dangerous arc flash. A water table is limited to only cutting with plasma and oxyfuel and is best for cutting mild steel. But, do not count the downdraft table out, it has its own advantages as well, including: it can cut a variety of metals, is easier to clean, and is easier to expand should the need arise. At EZCut CNC, we know that our clients have specific needs for their metal fabrication based on the typical applications with which they deal. And, we also know that those needs can change over time. When you make an investment in a CNC plasma cutting system, the last thing you want to do is quickly outgrow your investment, or have your needs change so much that you can no longer use the type of table you have purchased. It is for this reason that we focus on making our tables versatile.
EZCut CNC’s Value Components are something in which we take great pride. They are what make our systems such a great investment and show our customers that we are providing them with the best of the best. We design our CNC plasma cutters to be versatile by offering water tables, downdraft tables and also hybrid water/downdraft tables – a solution for every customer and every need. Our water-tight frames can be configured for down draft or as a water table setup. In addition to this, our tables continue to add versatility in configuration – the controller, computer stand, and X-axis cable track can be placed on either side of the table to accommodate any metal fabrication shop layout. When weighing your options, consider that making an investment in your metal fabrication shop should not be generic but should provide versatility in configuration and adaptability to your specific needs.
