    1. Ohmic contact (Plasma) uses the front most metal component of a shielded plasma torch to locate the surface of the material being cut. This process puts very little downward pressure on the...
  5. Re: Plasma cutting process stops for no reason, then continues

    I would suggest looking carefully at the machine code used for that particular cut file. The plasma cutter amperage or choice of consumables should have no impact on the motion.....so that part does...
  6. Re: hypertherm powermax 45xp Ohmic sensor question

    First, their is no part called a tip in a Hypertherm torch. The electrode is negative output from the power supply, the nozzle is positive during pilot arc (arc start/transfer to material) and the...
  7. Re: PMX 45 Voltage issue with Price AVHC10 THC

    Sounds like a loose connection or a failing voltage divider or THC. You can verify the real output voltage with any plasma cutter by reading it with a voltmeter on the DC voltage scale, on a 300 volt...

    Re: Powermax 30

    The Powermax45XP outsells the Miller Spectrum 625, so it is competitive. The higher wattage output of the 45XP (due to higher cutting load voltage) makes it more powerful, but also makes it not able...

    The Powermax45xp is 230 volts, it is the lowest powered plasma that we recommend for cnc use. The Powermax30 is used by some people on cnc machines as long as you keep the duty cycle low and stay...

    Re: Powermax 30

    You probably could put a quick disconnect on a 30, though I have never done this.....so I cannot offer advice. Keep in mind that there is the possibility of open circuit DC voltage of around 300,...
  18. Re: Torchmate 4X4 and Hypertherm 85 amp machine tuning

    Slowing the cut speed is the worse thing you can do. For 6mm steel you should use the 45 amp shielded cutting process and follow the book specs from the operators manual exactly....generally the cuts...

    Re: HyAmp Machine torch and 65A machine

    The HyAmp torch will work fine on the 65....a bit better consumable life as it has better cooling. The torch diameter is larger, and be sure to use the Hyamp cut charts. Jim Colt Hypertherm
