    I have something very similar on three of mine (soon to be five).

    Your timers are likely using the power frequency as the method of timing.. Which is best since you want the same number of cycles rather than an arbitrary number of seconds... You can use either...

    I recently sold a fairly decent 40 ton air clutch machine for around $4000. These are less valuable.

    There are a few shops that can use them. Basically the machine would be in a cage with the...

    Bottles of compressed air are roughly the same cost as O2, since most of the cost of O2 tanks is the handling of the tanks. Only problem with air is that you are using about 4-5 times more, with a...

    So finally got all the parts in to do the testing. On the little 500 watt fiber laser.
    Air was bottled breathing air not from a compressor.. Pressure that worked for 22ga and 16ga was 150 PSI and...

    Funny, nearly a year later and I'm finally getting the bottle of air sometime next week to try this... I'll try to remember to post the results.

    I figure a couple bottles will let me see if it is...

    The Bodor is probably made on a cast iron frame. My Rose graphix/BEScutter machine is from what I can tell is a Senfeng machine model number SF1313FL, the frame is fabricated from thick square tube,...

    I may try removing some of the bed slats, I'm not getting much spatter at all, my concern would be that my tagging is rather small. Currently we pull the sheet, wipe both sides of the sheet to remove...

    Ok well Machine has been in my shop since December 8th of 2017. Been pretty decent, we don't make tons of parts... Well actually we have processed about 5 ton of sheet give or take a little, mostly...

    I have never built a log splitter but I did build/rebuild about 20 presses between 4 and 350 ton.. I have a 100 ton that runs on a 5hp electric motor that has a two stage pump.

    Horsepower is also...

    My comment about metric was in jest.. Honestly I can and do work in either, but I figured since I'm asking an odd question I better cast a wide net and excluding almost the entire world is not a...
  12. Anyone have info about using compressed air with fiber laser cutter?

    I was nice and included the Metric values for those poor souls still using that archaic system :stirthepot:


    I am in the process of upgrading my shop air, and I wanted to see if maybe I can...

    Well I'm not a fan of the open machines. But if you are looking for a fiber laser I'd suggest at least taking a glance at Rose graphix.. They have a 1000w 5x10 unit for $95K rather than $167K so you...

    This whole exchange should really be its own thread since the next poor soul with a chinese machine is not going to look in the Amada thread for answers..

    The reason for the 1 MM nozzle is that...

    Hey Your in Deltona.. I'm in Orange City just up the road... Also running a 500 watt chinese but we are actually getting it going pretty well. We have some of the answers puzzled out I think.. Also...

    Ended up going with a 4x4' table enclosed fiber laser from rose graphix out of south Florida, I'm in central FL so we drove down and got a demo on one of their machines before buying.. Been running...

    Well I reported my issues multiple times and I honestly think it never got past the sales rep.. The way the company was setup I really did not have access to anyone else to complain... We spent about...

    Problems I have had with four separate shops, one I used for about five years:

    Inconsistent pricing, like 300% variations on random parts month to month.. And this was on reasonably large orders...

    Looks like I'm going to go with an enclosed unit.. I went and saw a demo unit and it produced the parts well.
    I was originally going to go with a 4x8 or 5x10 table, but most of the parts I make are...
  20. What is recommended safety measures with fiber lasers around 300 - 500 watts?

    I'm looking to get a fiber laser on a roughly 4x8 table. I have a few machines picked out to get samples from. Most of the machines are open with no real guarding, I had read some comment that...
