Powermax600 with non upgraded hand torch

Postby Twisted 1 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 5:39 pm

I have a Powermax600 with the original hand torch and have not upgraded to the new one yet. I was wondering which consumables I should be using for machine cutting with the PlasmaCam DHC. Also was wondering if anyone has a cut chart for it. Only one I have found is for a machine torch. Thanks in advance

The hand torch and machine torch use the same consumables. Follow the machine torch cut charts for the correct consumables , cut speeds, etc. When you put a hand torch on a machine....it becomes a machine torch! Jim Colt Hypertherm

Thanks for the quick reply Jim. I have been using the unshielded consumables because I am having a hard time getting the shielded ones. Is this ok or is it time for me to upgrade my machine to the 45xp.

I have been using the unshielded consumables and would like to switch to the finecuts. Can anyone tell me if they are good to use on 10ga. Also what would be a good start point for cut height and pierce time. Thanks
