Cutting Issue during Initial Movement

I have a Crossfire Pro with a Razorweld 45.
35 amp
100 ipm
0.063 cut height
0.5 sec delay
16 ga steel

The machine pierces and cuts fine but the initial part of the cut (first inch or so) as a narrower kerf than the rest of the cut. Thisleaves a bump on all the cut edges around the lead in and lead out. The remainder of the cut has a fairly consistent kerf width.

Welcome to The Forum.

Increase your Pierce delay try again.

Speed up. At 35 amps, you should be going at least 150 IPM.

Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll give it a try.
