5x10 table with C andcnc controls torch cable length

Post by sls7474 » Fri May 22, 2015 6:23 pm

I am building a 5x10 table with a Powermax 65 and machine torch. I was going to order a 25' cable is that the correct torch lead?

Depends on where you plan on putting the plasma at the table. If you use an overhead suspension arm and place it in the middle of either side 25 ft is plenty

It is a precision plasma hd gantry kit. the plasma will be located underneath the table. I ordered a 25' torch but can probably change it by tomorrow am if I need to.

Unless you have a protected cabinet under your table with airflow you might want to rethink putting it under a live table or water tray

If you can isolate the box from any water and the plasma cutter you can use 25 foot leads for everything and a 10 for the short motor side. Even our 6x12 can use 25 foot leads. Once you get bigger than that a 50 footer is needed.

We park ours on a roller cart about 1/3 to 1/2 the way down one of the long sides and run the torch cables overhead and separate from the other cables
