PowerMax 85 Error Code

Postby steelfx » Wed May 30, 2018 10:01 pm

Hi Everyone,

Hoping someone can help me figure this out:

I'm getting the Error Code: 0-30, which is: "Consumables Stuck"

PowerMax 85 (Approx. 14 Mos. Old)
Machine Torch
Operating Air: 77 p.s.i./5.3 Bar (dry, clean), Incoming Pressure at Regulator: 135 p.s.i.
Amps: 40 (cutting 18awg MS)
Shielded/Fine-Cut

Hypertherm® Consumables_Powermax 85.jpg

Error first showed up on a set of consumables that had been cutting for 4-5 hours.
All holes in Retaining Cap and Swirl Ring are clear.

I changed out all consumables to brand new and still get the code. Also tried un-shielded and
got the same error code.
Torch pierces and cuts one line of G-Code, then "faults" on the second G23.

Tried two new, complete sets of consumables, including New Swirl Ring. No improvement.
Changed out Electrode to 'Copper Plus'. No Change/Same Error Code.

When I disassembled the old consumables, nothing looked out of the ordinary,
but I replaced all except the retaining cap, as my welding store was out of stock.
Everything looked perfectly normal, although the Swirl Ring felt a little tight at the top bevel.
Removed Torch Body from Gantry Mount & inspected inside. Didn't see anything that looked abnormal.

On G23, Torch spits a little air, but doesn't make arc. Any Ideas?

Thanks,
Bill

HI Bill
I'm not an expert but Googling G23 it seems like that is a command used for Milling, What post processor are you using?
If my memory is correct the "copper Plus" is not for fine cut use.


(G22/G23 (Safety Zone Programming) or (Stored Stroke Limit) can be set as Follows
Milling
G22 X Y Z I J K
G22 X Y Z are the coordinates of the Corner Closest to Machine Home where I J and K respectively, the farthest Coordinates. All measurement are set from the Machine Zero Position.
Once G22 is set ant attempt to penetrate this Box Area will trigger an Alarm and the Machine will Stop. The Operator will then have to Manually Move the Violating Axis Exactly Opposite of the Offending Motion.)
