Plasma Machine

Post by kkeel » Thu Jun 15, 2017 1:42 pm

Well, I finally finished ( almost ) this Esab GXB 1000 Retro (12' x 24' water table). The machine is a 1991 with only 1100 hours ( military base ). It was fitted with (1) plasma head and (3) oxy/fuel torchs. The old control was obsoleted with no documents or wire schematics, it did have a parts book.
The retro was a Ajax Allin1DC with a DC1. Because the Allin1 is a closed loop system per say, my first choice for a THC (DTHC 4 from CandCNC)(for sale) would not work with the Allin1 setup. Sooo I had to go with a stand alone THC ( Neuron Simplicity). This setup is working very well.
