Really Big Tank Manufacturer uses Torchmate 3

So, here are some shots from a tank manufacturer that travels around the country building and installing holding tanks. Every sheet gets squared off and all of the vents and access doors are cut into them on a 10'x40' Torchmate 3 CNC Plasma Cutting Table. They have been a customer of ours for about 4 years. You can see where they built there own water table inside our frame. I thought you might enjoy seeing how these giant tanks are made. I hadn't thought to post up the pictures until they recently called to upgrade their plasma cutter to a Thermal Dynamics AutoCut 300. While the table can reach speeds of 1500ipm, the old cutter could not keep up. This is a good example of a situation where a high capacity plasma cutter is really going to increase production. We have changed the design of the gantry a little bit, but a 10'x40' Torchmate 3 Complete Bolt Together System like this with gearboxes and servo electronics runs about $35-40k + plasma cutter.

Do they move the machine from job site to job site, or do they cut the pieces at one location and haul them to the job site?

Please keep the pictures coming! Very cool to see stuff like this!
