    Durned if I know...

    but do know that the tables are getting steadily better as is the software...

    easier to use and better built

    plus the prices have been dropping...

    across the board...

    that is a good thing for those wanting to get into CNC Plasma these days...

    really do not know much about dynatorch... but I do know that Plasmacam runs their own in house written software... because I have been running it since 2007...

    you do not need to go out and purchase any 3rd party software...like "CNC Mill"

    I have a small Torchmate 2x2 growth series machine. It was inexpensive (as far as CNC plasma tables go). My package came with full cad software and a TD cutmaster 52 plasma for around $6000.
    The growth series machines are no frills machines. They come with stepper drive motors. Mine has manual z axis.
    For the cost of the machine, it does some very good work.
    If I were to buy another Torchmate table, it would be a 4x4 non growth series gear driven servo motor machine with auto Z axis.
