Re: Mixing aftermarket and genuine consumables?

I had to go to the aftermarket to find a solution to a problem which TD didn't or wouldn't provide. You made a bad purchase and don't want to lose your cost. Man up and bite the bullet and charge it off to experience. Use genuine from HT and support a company that will be there to support you.

Re: Mixing aftermarket and genuine consumables?

With my TD I run factory nozzles and Chinese electrodes. Life of the electrodes is about half of the factory ones. I had such a problem with the reliability of the factory electrodes where I was lucky to have 1 out of 4 new electrodes work without hissing and spitting giving a crappy cut. Since tryi...

Re: Old plasma cutter with new torch

I had one of those which I used only compressed air. I used the torch that came with it. Could you change out the torch with a one torch I don't know and anyone from the factory will tell you not to do it.

Using finecuts without increased pierce heightt

I am looking to upgrade to a 45xp. I cut 20-16 ga. with a table that does not have the ability to pierce higher than the cut height. - An older Cybermation. The finecut data calls for a cut height of .06 and a pierce height of .09" Is anyone using finecut consumables and cutting at the same hei...

Re: Needing assistance, Thermal Dynamics Arcing from electrode to tip

The first idea I thought of was the possibility of water in the air line. Good observation of Brandx noticing the under cut on the electrode. I also have a high freq start TD machine. My experience with after market consumables hasn't been bad. After the experience of having genuine electrode and on...

Re: is there anyway i can check ?

Seems no one has answered your original question. Yes there is a way to check the power. You need a DC Ampere clamp on meter with the adequate range to check you output. With the torch cutting you will snap the meter around the torch lead to get the actual amperage of the cutting. These units are co...

Re: Fume/dust collector on torchmate

The welding/cutting fumes are very toxic. Filters like these do not remove them. They are not even visible to the naked eye. You really have to exhaust them outdoors. You seem to be young and quite bright however you only have one set of lungs. Don't screw them up.

If you are going to be bending there are other considerations. The higher tensile aluminum may crack when bending.

Corel issue: Corel does not render to dxf very good. Many think including myself the best file type to save from Corel for use in Sheetcam is a svg(scalable vector graphic).
