Plasma Cutter Issue: Please Help

Post by PremierAutoExhaust » Mon Jan 01, 2018 1:10 pm


I'm having issues with my Hobart AirForce 40I Plasma Cutter. It works fine 70% of the time however, sometimes does not cut. The flame or arc does not cut through the aluminum and simply releases air. I purchased the plasma about two weeks ago.

I am cutting 16 Gauge Aluminum Tubing. Does anybody know what the best setting would be to cut the aluminum with? The settings start from 20-35A.

The cutting tip is new and not clogged.

Kind Regards,

Jameel Yar
