Greg Strachan from Southern Star Building/Rust Art in Western Australia purchased his PlasmaCAM CNC Plasma Cutting package from Weldclass back in March 2014.
Greg’s plasma metal art is inspirational!
“I’ve owned the PlasmaCAM for over 2 years now. Operate it part time alongside my carpentry business. When I started researching plasma cutting, it was a choice of buying second hand with no warranty or back up support. Buying the components and making myself – a lot cheaper but may not have worked.
Receiving the quote from Weldclass – it was detailed, suited to the power I had available and to what I wanted to make. Was also happy with the prompt service and back up available.
The PlasmaCAM box was delivered and I was impressed with the quality of the components and the finish. The video instructions were good and became clearer the further into the construction I got.
Was not simple to start it operating but was helped by Weldclass’s support and the PlasmaCAM website.
The included DesignEdge software can easily, accurately, draw any image and get it ready to cut. I mainly use it to import images and trace around or it can convert directly to a cut path from a good image. I use it to make farm signs, garden art, fire pits, custom made signs and freestanding metal art.
Cutting steel plate up to 5 mm (can cut up to 10mm) aluminium and stainless.
The PlasmaCAM is earning back its purchase price and I’ve made things I did not imagine I would. From a 2.4m long truck and trailer to a 20 sided light ball garden feature.”
