Default Best Paint Type to Use

I am getting ready to paint an industrial table saw. I know it will get banged around from time to time, so I am wondering if acrylic enamel, urethanes, just a sealed epoxy primer, or whatever would be the best?

All will work fine if the saw will stay inside. Paint over the epoxy if it will be out in the weather. If you are going to brush paint it, sherwin williams makes a very durable alkyd industrial enamel which is a lot less money than the acrylic enamel or urethane.
