Plasma torch anyone ?
« on: November 29, 2015, 09:05:12 PM »
I will soon have a plasma cutter with a CNC torch for Wall-E to play with.
Cutting pipe fittings to make funky tubular structures will be a blast !

Would anyone like to share his experience with such a setting ?
In particular, I have no idea how to trigger the toch using the KRC2 controller.
I fear that the plasma cutter saleman will only have experience with conventionnal CNC tables.

Cheers,

Johannes @ Robots in Architecture

Hello,

Hmmm... I know someone in Argentina who uses KUKA|prc for that, send me an eMail and I can put you in touch.
Your robot may already have a few digital inputs and outputs that you can use to control the torch, otherwise additional IO elements are not very expensive to add. It's just important that your torch has got some interface that allows you to trigger it via a digital signal.

Best,
Johannes

Hi,

I saw your post about the plasma cutter and I'm really curious about the process. Could you please walk me through the I/O and setting up the tool part of it? Which plasma cutter would you suggest?

Best,
M
