Plasma Build | More parts

by on Sunday, December 19th, 2010

I got some work done this week on this project. I finished up the support pieces that hold the guide rails for the gantry.

These were a trick to design and produce with the angles and the partial radius, but not real bad. Just took some planning on what needed to be machined first.

After asking some important question with the supplier of the control system I found that I need to put my gantry on a little diet. At 130 lbs. it was a little over weight to say the least. So I went back to the drawing board to see where I could save weight without compromising structural integrity. This is a small portion of what I came up with.

This is the bracket that the torch mount attaches to.
