Re: Silicone boot for Water bed machines now on sale

Absolutely you will find it cheaper but you will still have to modify it to get it to work. So post up where it is cheaper, go buy one, copy the modification of it, and copy the idea of it. But don't forget where you saw it first. We are working with the mfg to produce these with our logo, thick nec...

Re: I want to get better quality cuts where do I start?

You can loosen up tracking tolerances BUT the way it is set up right now is very accurate at the expense of dross on the details. So the top side will look very accurate and the bottom will have some dross to chip off. Or you loosen up tracking tolerances and the top wont be as crisp but there will ...

Re: I want to get better quality cuts where do I start?

I think what your experiencing is the actual slow down in the corners or tolerance tracking giving you a little more slag on details. You will get some slag on details that is part of cutting with plasma. On holes you should he using approximately half speed. And it gets more dramatic the smaller th...

Re: thermal dynamics 100xl

We have integrated many high frequency with 100% success. What you want to do is make sure the position of controllers and cable are far away and not crossing over any torch lead or work clamp coming from your plasma. You also want to make sure you have proper shielding over those cables and all com...

Re: Finecut Woes

I have an LDR 4x4 with water table, PM65, 2 Stage Dewalt 5 hp 80 gallon compressor with dry air. I can not remember what CanDCNC system, but I believe it is the most recent. Table is only 3 1/2 months old. How do you know the air is dry? A water separator does not cut it with fine cut. You can actu...

That was the predecessor to the Star Lab. It had 10.5" of clearance under the gantry. We have 8.25 on the Star Lab series. The Star Lab frames got beefier (4x4 boxed steel with 5/8" thick 5x8 feet) and the gantry is all steel now and the motor sizes changed (more power). That machine with ...

Re: Tip Slag Finecut nozzles

I agree.

Re: Why has nobody made TM rails?

Longer screws will wobble giving you much slower speeds. That might be one of the reasons they bailed on the small tables as a growth machine. Take your flashcut hardware and strap it onto a bigger table built for performance from a company rather than from a shear profit standpoint.

You can and it will act as a stop if ohmic fails. There is a blue cable that you use for linking the FT-01 to the table I/O. G31 is a faster sequence (Probe reacts faster than G28.1)

Re: Tip Slag Finecut nozzles

Moisture is one of the biggest reason you get dives. You can watch your dives on video and watch the actual water come through and change the coloring of the plasma beam. This will raise tip volts and the torch will dive. If you are not using a dryer system that actually works you will see this issu...
