Re: " NEW" HD Camera with TruVision and Scanything

Active cables work...Sometimes. The reason we stopped using web cams with active cables is because the connectivity was unreliable. They can't support a 30FPS frame rate reliably, which is what Scanything needs. That said, a web cam and active cable is a lot cheaper than our camera system. Our TruVi...

" NEW" HD Camera with TruVision and Scanything

Our camera system is NOT a cheap web cam. This is the same HD camera we use on our Titan machines. It is a high definition camera with zoom setting from 3.5mm - 16mm and manual focus. The system includes the camera, a pre-made video/power cable, camera power supply, USB video digitizer and a license...

Re: Drawing parts

One thing to remember with BobCAD is that unlike many programs out there, there is no grid or snap to grid. I hear that's coming though. That means if you need to draw with any degree of precision, you have to enter coordinates. There are shortcuts that assist you in that regard. In the Windows worl...

I'll also add that BobCAD V27 has a great shape library. Many of our customers have also requested shape nesting. We offer SigmaNest, NestMaster, ProNest and ShopData. The cheapest of them is NestMaster at $2200. BobCAD V27 has some nice changes that make the CAM part more user friendly and offers s...

Re: Blowouts on bottom of material . .

Depends on the controller. Some have advanced off....some don't. We get the same (long) consumable life on our Ultra-Cut with or without lead-out. Again...not so much of a lead-out that you get a lost arc condition. That WILL shorten consumable life.

Re: rapid and extreme kerf angle changes

Try running the plasma current 10-15% higher than the tip rating. This increases the arc density and helps with kerf angles on heavier plate. Worked pretty well with our A120.

Re: Blowouts on bottom of material . .

He's probably using a lead-in with overburn and no lead-out. There is a slight delay between the time motion stops and the torch shuts off. It's just enough to cause what you're seeing. A small lead out about the same as the kerf width gets the cutting jet far enough away from the edge to eliminate ...

You would dedicate one with a static IP to the controller. The other can be set up normally through DHCP or your rou...

Our system DOES NOT use CandCNC. We use Mach3, but our controller and THC are much more robust than CandCNC. Mach3 is just motion control software. CandCNC is just one of many companies that use it. There are a lot of industrial machines out there using Mach3. One of the most critical components in...

Re: Mach4?

There is no projected release date for Mach4. It's been a month away for about 2 years now. From what I hear, they are building it in modules. Each module adds functionality. Since our THC runs outside of Mach, all we require is basic motion control, so the transition to Mach4 won't be a big deal. M...

Re: Cutmaster 82 cut speeds help

If the THC isn't working, that will have some effect on the cut. Accurate torch height plays a significant role in getting a quality cut. Your cut speeds sound OK. On our A120, 3/16, 60A, I'm at 60IPM with almost no dross.

Re: Need some help

Sounds like your pin assignments in Mach3 are wrong, which would make the relay not activate. From the CPC you'll need to connect pins 3 and 4, which are torch on/off, to a relay that activates when you call M03. M03 needs to be configured properly so that when it is called it activates the correct ...

With the A120 air valve being on the torch, the torch lead is already pressurized so there is no delay. The A series machines light instantly where the manual CutMasters have a...
