If you can decide which CNC plasma cutting table to get, though, Wright CNC is here to help. Check out the following specs of our CNC plasma cutting tables and decide which table size is right for you!

4x4 CNC Plasma Cutting Table

If you’re working out of your garage or have limited space to set up equipment, the 4x4 plasma table for sale from Wright CNC is the perfect size for you! It doesn’t take up too much room but still allows you to complete custom, quality work. The entire footprint of the table is 61 inches wide, 61 inches long, and 54 inches high to give you four feet of cutting space in either direction.

Each table comes with a wet-dry material support system, so you can run your plasma cutter without fear of creating too much smoke or throwing sparks everywhere. With our CNC plasma cutting tables, you’ll be able to produce projects quickly and with accurate, clean cuts.

5x5 CNC Plasma Cutting Table

The 5x5 CNC plasma cutting table is another great option for those with limited space. However, with one more foot of cutting area in either direction, you’ll have the flexibility to complete more projects in less time, as well as larger projects with the extra cutting area. This is a great option for those who anticipate their metalworking business to grow quickly. The footprint of this table is 72 inches wide, 72 inches long, and 54 inches high.

This table also comes with a wet-dry material support system for safe use in a limited space. Like all of our CNC plasma cutting tables, it also includes an automatic torch height controller that adjusts to the changing height of your material for an even, quality cut.

4x8 CNC Plasma Cutting Table

If you know you’ll be working on larger projects from the get-go, like custom auto parts or large metal signs, a great option for you is the 4x8 CNC plasma table. Materials come in 4x8 sheets, so this table allows for easier handling of materials. It also allows for heavier parts and mild steel. This is our most popular table size among customers because of its functionality. You’ll be able to set up this table in your shop or in a large garage if you have a lot of space to work. The total footprint of this table is 61 inches wide, 120 inches in length, and 54 inches tall. Make sure to measure your workspace to make sure these dimensions will work for you!

Another feature that all of our CNC plasma cutting tables have is the automatic material-height sensor. This device detects the optimal Z-axis height to cut through whatever material you’re using — there’s no more guesswork for the perfect cut height!

5x10 CNC Plasma Cutting Table

Wright CNC offers tables as large as 5x10! This table is perfect for a business that works on larger-scale projects and produces bigger parts. It’s great for sheet metal fabrication jobs, and HVAC users like this table size for creating their duct work. The 5x10 CNC plasma table has a total footprint of 72 inches wide, 144 inches long, and 54 inches high, so make sure your shop is large enough for this behemoth of a CNC plasma cutting table.

With a table this big — or any size of a table, really — it’s important that all your cables are neat and organized to minimize damage and accidents. That’s why Wright CNC has created an automated cable management system that keeps your cables out of the way of your projects and the rest of your workspace.


Your needs for a CNC plasma cutting table depend on the workspace you have available, how many projects you’re working on, and the scope of your projects. At Wright CNC, we understand that people have different methods and setups for running their metalworking business, which is why we built so many different sizes.
