400,000 holes! Beat on ArcDroid!

So what happens if you use your ArcDroid 8-10 hours a day 6 days a week for 4 months? Blowing holes all day every day!
This one came back to us from an industrial customer in South Carolina.
Turns out it just needed a good cleaning and a new fuse!

That’s very impresive, considering the ArcDroid is only rated for hobby/light industrial! I’m waiting on mine to arrive. Can’t wait!

Actually this a weird misconception, we have never stated that the ArcDroid is “rated” for any particular usage. People just make assumptions and draw their own conclusions

I can however say that ArcDroid was designed to meet ANSI/RIA R15.06:2012, NFPA 79:2021 standards for industrial equipment.

Sorry, if my reply is misleading…With all the research I’ve done, I swear I read it somewhere (obviously as corrected not straight from ArcDroid). Is that a safety and electrical standard?
Thanks…

Designing to an industry wide standard was an intelligent choice. Thanks Andrew

Now that is a cool story to share more info about. Anything to support the durability of this machine is warranted since it is still so new to the market.

It says in the FAQ under “Why didn’t you make it bigger”, something like to cover 98% of cuts for home use. Perhaps that’s where the misconception comes from. Might be worth adjusting that wording as this sort of longevity is beyond home use! Very impressive.

Is that 2 amp glass fuse ? I actually stock those for our Thymatron machines we sell lol yes!!!

Just wanted to stop in and say that I just bought this machine for the company and its still working like new. solid built machine with great tech support! The owner of the company I bought it from told me the story on it and how impressed he was. I’m really excited to have one now. I looked at getting an arcdroid a while back but decided to go with a 5x10 table for the shop. I bought this to so I can take it in the field with me.
