torchmate post-flow

Post by bwright » Tue Mar 30, 2021 2:05 pm

does any one know how to change the post flow on their torchmate? I have water tabkle and the post flow is way to long after it stops cutting. It makes a huge mess. Any tips would be appreciated.

This may be controlled by your plasma cutter, and not the Torchmate software. Perhaps check your plasma cutter users manual for information on adjusting post flow time.

After a cut when my torch comes back and splashes up I just jog it real quick over existing sheet. If there is nothing there I put a piece under it to minimize splashing up.

That works okay if you always have your zero in the same place.
