Re: Delusional Designs CNC Support

So keep up the S**T , seen it all before from the CNC plasma companies that trash others, to make others think they worth buying their Junk.. Generally go tits up soon., but not before it leave a bunch of people holding the b...

Re: Piercing 3/8" thick plate

Depend on your machine,Software, and consumables used also.. The size/shape of hole matters.. I don't have 105 amps or a Hypertherm for one thing, and I would probably stop at .750 with a smaller machine anyway.. Meaning you might gain 1/8 over what your max cut is.. In my case, 5/8 now.. Everybody...

Re: Delusional Designs CNC Support

The part, that you can't cut smooth with a plasmacam.. I think there are many examples here, that proves otherwise.. I don't see any cuts being made on his table to show that it's even rigid enough to get good cuts. None. Making a big deal about running a table remote is just plain silly.. You going...

Re: Delusional Designs CNC Support

Instead of running a machine around without cutting anything. Draw/cut, and produce two parts to compare too. Use it a few years, and compare again.. Otherwise total sales job on a POS table (IMO)Because you run your mouth in a sales vid, does not make it true. He was comparing his table, not a qual...

Re: Piercing 3/8" thick plate

That is the purpose on thicker materiel. To Minimize the damage from a pierce. Really only found on high-end plasma software, and cutters. Although like I said, Esab has specs for their air plasma to do the exact same thing.. If you watch close this is what I am talking about. So Tom, how would I th...

Re: Delusional Designs CNC Support

I looked at their table. Is anyone weird about having a belt driven system? I don't know that I would trust it. And replacing it and getting it lined back up again just seems like a big pain? I had belts on my shapeoko3..worked well for that but they do stretch and had to be re-adjusted. Plus it wa...

Re: Piercing 3/8" thick plate

kkroger, what controller and thc software/setup do you use? It's a pity you can't use a slower feed rate with wiggle pierce, it shakes the hell out of mine when I tried it. It's not recommended by Hypertherm anyway.. I have been trying to get Les to make a program to raise the torch after firing th...

Re: What low amp/non book setting do you use for thin material?

I was talking you guys are making 30 amp nozzles for the 30 XP. Are those a step backwards too? I only ask because I had great results using the 20/30 amp consumables in my 30 amp Esab 400 (PT39 torch),and the Esab 1600 with the PT-37 machine torch. Worked great (IMO) Shielded/Unshielded..

Re: What low amp/non book setting do you use for thin material?

It's kind of funny Hypertherm offers a standard 30 amp nozzle for the 30XP, Just not for a 45XP. I know it's not for a machine torch, but looks like they seem to get the lower amp nozzles to work there. :)

Re: Ohmic Sensor vs. Floating Head

Most floating heads are not really designed all the well for thin metal. If you take the time to get it right, Like zero drag, and carefully matching the spring torch weight,it's excellent. Long lightweight springs, and very high quality low drag rails, are the key success.You can't lump them all in...

Re: Piercing 3/8" thick plate

This has me curious. If you pre-pierce and then go back to cut starting at the pierce point won't the torch just start and flame out as it doesn't find any material? No, because it's just like edge starting, and will pick up the edge, and move real quickly. Holes that are plasma punched will have a...

Thanks guys, yes im using sheetcam. I am somewhat familiar with the drilling operation for piercing holes, I did a dry run once and it seems to work well. This is a drill operation for the start of your Lead-in on any shape, not just drilling holes..I found using my Victor, solves all those .060 cu...

Re: One simple setup...

Use what works for you.. get some time with it, and upgrade down the road.. I love my Dotco, so I think you just got a bunk one.. I am going to go with the mini die grinder like the Nitto. Probably a knock off,just to see if that's all I need.

Cool.. There are a few of those out there too.. I could send you a cup, and tip for something to pattern it off of..They have a shielded cup too. 9-8237.. It could give you some options on how you build it.. Half the people use exposed, and the other half use shielded. Most will have a Unshielded cu...

I know most people prefer a ohmic sensor for setting the cut height, but I never really had a problem using a spring to control the weight of the torch.. I changed to a longer spring when I changed out my rail for my floating head just last week.. it works better then ever, and very thin metal has n...
