We took our previous experience, and about a years worth of research and testing for us to come up with these components.   We selected these items for several reasons, including what was right for our business.  When it comes to selecting the components that are right for you and your application your components or models may be different.   No mater what you select make sure you test it on these factors.  The factors that helped ups pick our components were:

Quality - How well is is built and how long will it last.

Support -  This is critical,  Will the company that sells you this product be there for you, can you call them and talk to someone that knows what they are talking about and you can understand.  One thing we did was call these companies and pick their brains.  We had great conversations with live people that were friendly and wiling to help and answer your questions.

Price - Is it a good value, can our budget support it.   

Prior experience -  If you have something that works for you and you like it stick with it.

Testing - Try the products before you buy when ever possible. We tested nearly every plasma cutter on the market at trade shows,  nothing beats hands on comparisons.
