I have 80 psi at the plasma cutter, running through a HF refrigerated air dryer/filter - although this is what I suspect is the issue. The confusing part to me is this doesn’t happen every time, but when it does it goes bad quickly. I’m new to plasma cutting, and truly at a loss on this one.
In your torch height controlling you have the option of either it using smart voltage where in the first few milliseconds of cut it figures out what the voltage should be and automatically sets it.
Or there is the option to just write in a nominal voltage in that menu the big advantage is is that it doesn’t need the time to figure out the smart voltage on small cuts. So on a very short small cut you make up that little bit of time by the machine not having the sense smart voltage.
definitely check out your consumable pack that could just throw everything off.
