Re: Powermax 65/85/105 family

Not long ago this year in Australia there was a Powermax 85 in a flood and was underwater for a day or so. The owner dried it out and is now using it successfully again. The owner posted some pictures of 1/2" MS cuts and It seems to be cutting perfect, just like new. Amazing! I bought a Therma...

Re: Thermal Dynamics 60i

Looks like there is a optional voltage card setup.(AUTOMATION INTERFACE (A-SERIES ONLY) From what I seen in the manual, there is a arc good signal, contactor inside the machine, and says it's a option for basic cnc. (Never seen the machine in person, so just going by net info..) Problem is, they are...

Re: Powermax 65/85/105 family

Actually the post was about the load voltage the torch runs at, and duty-cycle of the 45 was going to be affected quite a bit.. Did that change or what?

Re: Powermax 65/85/105 family

I remember when it was posted that using a 45XP torch on a 45 would cause the world to fall off it's axis.. :lol:

I would sell your old 45 machine torch to recoup some of your cash, and go with the xp torch.. Although the 45 XP power supply is just excellent on every level.

Re: Connecting Longevity 42i

One thing about most good 50 amp circuits. You can pull more then you think out of them. Anyway using 60 amp consumables on up to .500 you will not have any issues at all.. Order some 70 amp nozzles if you need to cut somewhat thicker, and it will keep your amp draw down a bit too.. Cut quality is g...

Re: Anyone use a TD Cutmaster 82 for CNC?

Duty-cycle is not lower..151 is probably similar at 100% duty-cycle rating.Yes the 151 has more power, but the 82 should cut about the same as a Hypertherm 65 .. I owned all three, and a 42, 52/A-120,101 also.. if it's snapping off on .250, something is really wrong with it .3/8 would still be in th...

Re: Connecting Longevity 42i

Main thing you have part # to go by, and factory consumables. Thermals are hard enough to get quality cuts out of, but sticking with factory parts is the first step..It's 14 year old torch design,and will have a narrower working range then some later designs. (works well) Least you are not stuck wit...

Ebay is best. Consumable costs can be about 4 time cheaper then any other place for original equipment.

Re: Connecting Longevity 42i

If you don't turn the power up on the 152 it would be similar to running your 40 amp machine. Fix the thermal. You can get a lot of work done using 50/55 amp, and 60 amp tips.. They also make 70 amp tips that do a great job. Not too bad on power input cutting .500 or so. With shielded machine consum...

Re: Help finding oem consumables

If you look at the machine torch, it shows the same setup. Don't think drag only tip Just need to find one and give it a go.. One thing is a tip might not be perfect for standoff cutting, but sure beats changing a torch out.. Nothing to loose, and everything to gain..

Re: Thermal Dynamic Cutmaster 82 with Proma 150 THC?

If you only just want full arc voltage, torch contactor,and arc good, then no on the interface. It's all on the main board. J-10 pins for the Arc good, and trigger. It's in your Manual. If you need divided arc voltage, then you will need the 9-8311 interface kit. Simple as that...( Page A=7 ) pins 1...

Re: 45xp or 65 xp

Makes sense, and like I said before, I was not worried about the duty-cycle of the machine. I personally like to know the fan works. The older Miller passport had a fan that would cycle on and off quite a bit when using on 120 volt input.. Kind of nice to just to work the machine to the fan cycle.. ...

I was not worried about the duty-cycle, but was supersized just how warm the air was blowing out of the machine..I was cutting with my A-60 comparing the two.(Similar duty-cyle to the 65 I had) cool air coming out of it on the same cuts. I know heat when I feel it , and had probably had about 100 + ...

Re: 45xp or 65 xp

Here is one difference between the 45XP, and 65 machines.. Cutting 3/4 by hand with the 45xp, the fan came on and ran quite a while.. Not that long of cut either.. The 65 would of never turned the fan on unless pushing it for a much longer time.. The air was pretty warm coming out of the 45XP too. L...

Re: Victor thermal dynamics A60 questions

There is going to be help in the torch for Thermal-dynamics machines. Thermacut has some torches coming out with there patented consumables. Great stuff.. It will be a game changer for the victor machines,and maybe it will light a fire under Victor to do something with their consumables.(maybe)

Re: Any idea why I am getting angled cuts?

I tried a P-80 panasonic machine torch with the smallest 1.1mm nozzle. (supposedly for 40amp) That is the only other torch I can find made for pilot arc cutters. Really made no discernible difference. . Maybe, but there still are other excellent torches.. :lol: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Thermal-Dynam...

You really should put three phase in the shop, and go for a water-cooled setup. Then you will gain cut quality on .500 and above. Otherwise you are still playing with toys..The 45XP is newer tech,does thing the larger machines are not capable of. Save the $2000.00 and by a machine O/2 torch if you w...
