DHC piercing problem....Please help.

Postby Njc » Tue Jan 31, 2017 11:18 am

I have had my DHC for a few years now and all a sudden I'm can not control the piercing time, everything else works fine. Any ideas on what it could be?

Are you running the upgraded designedge software?

If you, are there is a section in your settings, under the machine control tab that allows you to customize the pierce time:

Try adjusting the value (that is highlighted in the picture) up or down to see if it makes a difference.
If you are running the old school software (version 3.11), your settings menu will have less features to play with than mine (designedge), but if I remember correctly, even back in the old software you still adjust the piece time in the settings in a similar way to what I'm showing you. Another thing you might want to check within the same section is if the "wait for signal before moving" box is checked. I usually have this checked. If your is not checked, check it. If it is already checked, uncheck it and see if it helps.

Give plasmacams tech people a call if its still not doing what you need to do a soon as you can. They'll get you up and going in no time.

Good Luck Brother
