I've been talking to a 4'x4' cnc gantry-builder about the setup I want to order from them. I want to pick-up a PP50 or PP60 to run the setup. The CNC guy tells me that the PP50 or PP60 won't run well with the Toshiba electronics & controller used in the cnc gantry due to the amount of interference from the torch head. And says I'd "need to upgrade" to Gecko electronics to use either of those torches. And of course the upgrade costs like $800 (out of my budget). I think he's pulling my leg.
Any reason why the PP50 or PP60 wouldn't be a good choice? Any truth in this guy's advice? Would using the PP's high-freq ground as well as some cable shielding and/or longer torch lead (distance) do the trick?
My plan is to cut anything from 14ga sheet to 3/8" plate for mostly panels and brackets. Mostly for hobby, but plan on running some small production runs for side-income here and there.
Any advice from the pro's would be awesome!
Thank you in advance,
