Murphy’s Law says the cnc plasma cutting machine will break down when you need it most ( As we all know happens to often )—usually right in the middle of a big plate-cutting job. At up to €/£ 200 per hour fully burdened cutting-machine downtime gets expensive.
Many companies do not have a regular preventive-maintenance schedule for their plasma-cutting systems. After a few months of neglect, the machine will no longer perform as-designed.Mechanical parts will prematurely wear, causing rough machine motion. This may lead to out-of-tolerance parts and poor cut quality, particularly at higher cutting speeds. When machine components fail, trouble-shooting and servicing can take days.
