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). Using the svg format was the only way Sheetcam would break the circles into 4 arc and not be a bunch of short line segments. M...

Re: Large file - broken lines

When you import into Sheetcam the program should fix some loose end problems. Under Sheetcam Application Options and under the import tab you can set some of the tolerances. I have mine set to the following: I don't know if they are correct but they work for me Import link tol. .02 Max detail red. ....

When I opened your L file in corel x5 one of the nodes had two direction arrow on it. I have not seen that before. On drawing circles try using the the ellipse tool and under the Property Bar choose the open curve option and set the number of degrees to 360. You will only have one node but don't wor...

Re: Exhaust Fan Motors and dust

Just a note about squirrel cage fan - Don't use them. They are designed for clean air and when used in dirty air the blade quickly fill up and then the capacity goes to nil. Backward inclined blades with the motor outside the dirty air stream would be my recommendation. Your exhaust design is very i...

I'm not familiar with Mach but I would think it doesn't has those abilities. It might change cut speed and other other parameters. in the mean time I would definitely change the settings on the front of the machine. You might post your question under the Mach forum.

Re: Working with HVAC company

Sounds like you might be setting up your new competition. Even a one man shop needs a table to be successful. It won't take them long to figure out that it would be beneficial for them to be doing it themselves - especially if they can't get the parts when they need them.
