Torch only firing once per job


#1

I’m attempting to cut the “Custom Letter Logo” project, but my plasma cutter is only cutting out the first segment (the letter T). The Crossfire continues moving through the rest of the G-code (tracing the dot and the square perimeter), but the Vipercut 30 torch is only blowing air at that point (no arc).

In looking at the G-code, it looks like the first M3 command fires the torch successfully the first time:

N10 G90
N15 G70

(2D Profile2)
N20 G0 X2.1976 Y0.797
N25 M3
N30 G4 P1.

When it gets to the dot, it seems like M5 turns the arc off, but the subsequent M3 commands have no effect:

N1475 G1 X2.2755 Y0.8308
N1480 M5

N1485 G0 X2.7531 Y0.6311
N1490 M3
N1495 G4 P1.
N1500 G1 X2.7562 Y0.6637 F30.

The air pressure looks good throughout the cut (75 psi) and if I manually turn the torch on in Mach after the first shutoff, it does start firing again although I also have to manually turn it back off as well once the program is finished. (It seems to ignore the M5 commands as well at that point.)

I’m guessing this is a software issue but I’m not sure whether it’s a Mach 3 problem, a Fusion 360/G-code issue, or something else. Any suggestions on what to look at next?

Do you have the plasma cutter set to 2T or 4T?


#3

I’ve typically had it set to 2T. I tried 4T once, but then the torch remained on after cutting the T, through the traversal to the dot, and then turned off and stayed off after cutting the dot.


#4

Hi Brent,

2T is the correct setting so you should be good there. Do you have your plasma cutter wired for 240v input power?

Can you open up your torch and make sure that the electrode is tightened? Yours should have come with an electrode wrench. I’ve found that sometimes hand tightening the electrode increases the risk of it unscrewing which wall cause it to not fire.

After the T cuts out and the torch shuts off, does the air continue to flow? That would indicate the torch extinguished on its own, as opposed to being commanded to extinguish by mach 3.

Lastly, can you post your entire G code file?

Edit: One more question. Can you toggle the torch on and off by pressing F5 in Mach 3? Does that functionality work correctly?


#5

Hi Daniel,

My Vipercut 30 is plugged in to a 240v outlet.

Air was continuing to flow through the nozzle through the rest of the program although the torch always extinguished immediately at the end of the T on the 2T cuts.

I am able to toggle the torch on and off via Mach 3. This worked during the initial test, but also during the project cut when it was performing an “air only” run.

I just tried to open the torch and tighten the electrode, but that didn’t seem to work unfortunately. (I hadn’t opened it prior to this.) Open opening the torch cap, the “swirl ring” fell out and on the ground, so I wasn’t sure how it was positioned inside the cap originally.

The electrode seemed like it was already reasonably tight, but I removed it and screwed it back on again with the electrode wrench to be sure. After doing a few searched to figure out what the swirl ring was and how it went in (it’s not mentioned in the Vipercut manual aside from the part number), I just placed it around the electrode (beneath the nozzle), despite the fact that it still seemed loose around the electrode. (It seems like a spring keeps the electrode and nozzle in contact until air pressure separates the two?) I’m guessing I didn’t do this part correctly.

I screwed the cap back on and tried another run. Unfortunately it looks like something may have arced inside the torch. Prior to this run, everything looked pretty clean inside the torch (no soot marks). After this run, the swirl ring is covered in black marks along with some of the other internal components. There was a brief arc when trying to do the first pierce, but then the machine continued to run with air only until I shut it off.

I’ve attached a picture of the current state. I’m not sure if the swirl ring can be salvaged. If not, is that something that can be sourced at local supply stores? (I’m familiar with MIG and TIG torch components, but new to plasma cutting torch maintenance.)

This is just a picture of all the runs up until now. The first 3 in 2T, the last two in 4T mode, the final one manually toggling the torch after it’s first shutoff.

Hi Brent,

Your swirl ring is definitely damaged. Below is a picture of the swirl ring from our vipercut 30. This swirl ring is the factory original and probably has close to 1000 pierces on it.

I’m not certain what is causing that type of defect, but i have forwarded this thread to Razorweld tech support and am awaiting a response. With your permission, I can give them your phone number and they can work with you directly if that’s preferred.

Replacement swirl rings can be purchased here: https://store.langmuirsystems.com/collections/consumables/products/razorweld-consumables-swirl-ring

You should be able to find it at your local weld supply story. It’s a standard S45 torch consumable.


#7

Thanks for the part number. I’ll try to track down a local supplier tomorrow to speed things up and order one if I can’t find one.

You can pass my contact info along to Razorweld and I’ll work with them on the torch issue.


#8

From Razorweld tech support:

“We read the thread and determined that there was most likely excess water in the line which is what most likely caused the internal arching. Which is what we believe caused the damage to the swirl ring. Our first step troubleshooting would be to get a fresh set of consumables to test if replacing the consumables can solve the issue. Since the machine fires when manually engaged we are confident that this should solve the consistent firing issue if it is a machine or torch based issue.“


#9

The compressed air line should be pretty dry. I’m running the air from the compressor, through a Speedaire refrigerated air dryer and then a Motor Guard M-26 filter before it reaches the plasma cutter.

I did notice air air leak coming from inside the plasma cutter and decided to try to track that down as well before the last run. (The compressor kept coming on every few minutes when the machine was connected to the air line but off.) It turned out the internal coalescing filter bowl wasn’t screwed on very tightly and was leaking air, so I tightened that until the leak mostly stopped (there’s still a small leak through the bottom of the filter/unit).

The bowl/filter also appeared to be completely dry (the plasma cuttered has only been started a few times now).

I’ll try a new swirl ring as soon as I can, but are there any other precautions I should take the next time I install one? I’m not sure how else water could enter the line.


#10

Sounds like you have a really good setup there for keeping your air dry. I’m going to provide your contact info to tech support so they can work with you directly. Thankfully they offer a great warranty if it were to come to that.


#11

Air compressor is not big enough


#12

The compressor has a small tank, but it’s rated for 6 cfm @90 psi. It seems like it’s keeping up fine during these small cuts since the pressure never dips below 75 psi on the plasma cutter meter (although the compressor does continue to run most of the time once it kicks in).


#13

Some plasma cutters have a low air pressure shut off to prevent damage to the torch. The air pressure may be dropping too low during cutting.


#14

I was concerned that insufficient air pressure/flow could be the problem, but like I said the pressure on the regulator dial seems pretty solid and I can turn the torch arc on and off via the button in Mach 3 even when the G code isn’t controlling it correctly.

If there’s another way to check for satisfactory pressure, I can look into that too one the torch is operational again. I’ll also try doing some manual tests (I’ve used shared/shop plasma cutters before, but I’ve never used this one by hand).


Torch fires then dosent
#15

@langmuir-daniel I picked up a new swirl ring today and replaced it along with the nozzle and electrode. Seems like the torch is working well again (the edges look great).

Unfortunately, I’m having same problem with the torch not firing after the first shutoff.

I checked the air gauges on the plasma cutter and compressor and they both seemed solid (solid 75 psi on the cutter, tank pressure never dropped below ~95-100 psi. I also noticed that if I let the program run to the very end, the air stays on throughout the entire run, shutting off shortly after the end of the program (despite not cutting throughout).

This time I also tried uninstalling Mach 3 and re-installing it from scratch following the instructions in the video just in case I missed a step the first time around. (It seems like some of the settings from the previous installation persisted though since I didn’t have to select the motion controller or agree to/dismiss the EULA this time.) I did look at the Mach 3 on screen settings and G-code that I could see in the video and both of those seemed correct in my installation. I am wondering whether I could have accidentally toggled a setting that would make it behave this way.

One other thing that I tried today was pausing the program execution and setting the next line to run right after the torch turned off successfully during the previous run (for example, the line right after the T stops cutting). When running this way, I can get the remaining segments to cut out. For example, if the cutting sequence is:

T -> dot -> border

and the Crossfire does an air-only run on the dot and border, if I pause and restart from the line right after the T the Crossfire will move to the pierce location for the dot, cut it, turn off and then do a dry run on the border. If I pause and start from the end of the dot, the border completes and the torch shuts off successfully at the end of the program.

I’m not sure whether any of this is helpful for debugging possible software or firmware/controller issues, but I’m running out of ideas for things to test.

Including an image of the cut done in segments. Also attaching the full G-code since that was requested earlier.

Ok, sent a message to Razorweld support and they said it might be an issue with the torch. Sounds like they’re sending a replacement, so I’ll give another update after that.


#17

Your G4 p1.0 Should be P0.1 I don’t know if that’s gonna make a difference or not. what font is the t i’d like to reprogram it


#18

Just curious since I have no experience, but have you tried running anything other than the t. that you have been running? Any other g-code operation?


#19

is the G4 P(X) is this the pierce delay? I have not received my table yet but viewing my G code I had G4 P0.5 I assumed that to be the 0.5 Pierce delay. from the Crossfire Assembly Manual instructions.

  1. Change the ‘Pierce delay’ value to 0.5 seconds. The pierce delay value controls how long the motion will pause after the torch fires so that the plasma jet has a chance to fully pierce the material. The value you select will depend on your plasma cutter.

Yes, I think “G4 P1.” is the pierce delay. From observation, it’s definitely higher than necessary (I set it to 1 second in Fusion), but I read a suggested range of 0.5 - 1 seconds somewhere and went with the higher end of the range. I’ll go ahead and try changing it to a lower number since it seems like the 1 second delay generates a malformed decimal number. (It does seem to pause for 1 second on those lines whether or not the torch is arcing though.)

I haven’t tried anything other than the T yet, but I’ll also give that a try. I assume anything with a single arc firing would work fine.

And @rkartman45 I don’t have a font for the T. I just downloaded the sample DXF file from the Langmuir Systems website and scaled it down for these test cuts. Perhaps they could tell us the font name (it looks like they may have also used it in the “Garden Art Sign.”

Thanks for the suggestions everyone.
