PM 85 F0-30-0 T105M50 SH/K error

I've started getting the 0-30 error on my PM 85 ALL THE TIME. Seems like every few minutes I'm having to pull the consumables due to this error. After 2 years of ownership, it started abruptly. I've changed all consumables (shield, nozzle, electrode (CopperPlus and regular), swirl ring, retaining ca...

Looking for idea input on this outdoor design

Customer is wanting this sign to be at least 72" x 72". It's an outdoor sign, and future rust is a large concern for them. I'm thinking 3/16" or 1/4" AL for the backer plate, with thinner 1/8" material for the detail on front. If I can get 72" wide sheets of AL from my ...

Re: Powder Coat Gun?

My first gun was an Eastwood Dual Voltage gun. It works very well. Reading all the praise of the EZ50, I purchased one of those as well. It's been a disappointment. It can "puke" powder, but I think that's just an inherent issue in cup guns...can't really fault the EZ specifically for that...

Re: PlasmaCam RENEGES on eBay Sales

Too many people I respect are using Plasmacam and Samson, and making good money and good product. I don't necessarily feel that the Plasmacam product is the best value out there, but it's certainly capable of the job. If I owned one, though, I'd always be worried when I might find myself boxed in a ...

Anyone have tips on creating dies for a small press brake?

I have a customer who is ramping up the volume on a part I make for them. It's a wall mount bracket. It looks like this. 22-2220 - NEX - Wall Bracket - Ver2 - ready for plasma.jpg You can see how it needs to be bent in the center section. I've been doing these by hand on a box brake, and that sucks....

Fighting these codes right now. What causes wear to the swirl ring? Are there any steps that can be done to minimize the wear (aside from clean, dry, oil-free air)?

Re: Plasma table clamps?

I have several I've made, modeled on _Ogre's solution. They work great...as long as you have access to the bottom of your slats. As my table has filled up with debris, I find it's difficult to scrape out an opening on both sides for them to get under the slat.

Re: Odd issue not cutting through at edge of material

Thanks Jim. That all makes sense on the stainless, but it doesn't explain why I am now having issues on half inch mild steel. I have cut half inch mild steel in the past, with no issues whatsoever. Parts typically fall out of my half-inch just fine. Also, on the half inch parts, notice the issue is ...

Odd issue not cutting through at edge of material

Ran into an issue cutting some 3/4" stainless a couple of weeks ago. I was cutting a line, "ripping" some SS railing down to a smaller size. I made some practice cuts on a scrap piece, and kept running into an odd issue. For some reason, the plasma would leave a small uncut section at...

Dan, you really owe it to yourself to go and get a demo on a Hypertherm High Definition system say around 130 amps. We have a table manufacturer here and seeing what one of their 3mm x 1.5m $130k tables can do is an eyeopener. They can replace laser cutting for all but the finest of parts and cut u...

Guys, I'm curious what methods you use to store your cut panels/stock pieces vertically. I'm not talking sheets, but rather finished cut pieces that you have in inventory. Things for shows, needs packaged for shipment, etc. Stuff up to 3/16" thick. I was thinking of cutting slots in 3-4" P...

Re: Not cutting all the way through in certain areas

Jim suggests that increasing the cut height alone will fix it. I found the only sure-fire way to fix it was to cut at .075 as well as reduce speed 10%. A bit more dross, but much better than trying to pick cuts back up, etc.

I will tell you that I get way more pierces than I thought I was. This. I don't have a pierce counter, but when I DON'T crash out the torch head, I'm amazed at how long the consumables last in 3/16" and less materials. I cut thicker than that, but not regularly, so I don't know how long they g...
