    CNC Plasma Charge

    I am considering adding CNC plasma capabilities to my shop and was wondering what to budget for cut time charge per hour. Any suggestions?

    per hour of what? Actual table time? That is brief compared to materal handling, de-slag, layout, artwork generation. Pick the wrong software tools and most of you profit will vanish in the "programming" end of the equation.

    I worry less about time, and price my stuff by material and square foot numbers. That way someone can send me a design or drawing (or even call me on the phone) and I can quickly calculate a price. Much easier then if I try to figure out how many man hours might be involved. You can do it that way since there is only one process: Cutting shapes from flat material.
