I'm looking for feedback from anyone here that wants to chime in...especially if you're using something different than the more commonly advised. We have a Bystronic BySpeed 3015 w/ 4.4kW resonator and as per their install docs, they recommend using either copper or stainless steel (SS316) tubing for cutting and resonator gas supply. We already have 1/4" SS316 tubing in-place using SwageLok fittings for the resonator gases. However, I'm not dead set on using either for the cutting gases...is anyone here using other types of high-pressure hoses or pipes? Are flexible braided stainless steel tubes an option?
