Okay so now I have a brand new hypertherm 45xp, an 80 gallon compressor rated at 14 CFM at 90 PSI and dry air going through a desiccant and oil filter. I have new consumables. My THC is hooked up using the wiring kit from Langmuir.
I dont think my THC is the issue i think it is me but i am not certain since i am so new to this.
Problem that I consistently have (ONLY when the THC is on) is that the torch will be fine working on a cut as expected and the THC will raise the torch through the roof if it had its way. This random torch climbing has cost me a few large peice. I can make the same cuts NO PROBLEM on same files with no THC and works great.
Now i do know if paths get to close and the arc goes off the metal a little it can cuase issues like this. Or if the lead ins are too short ect. My torch raised up on the last peice on a straigt cut with no other cuts near by, no edges near by and it was a long straigt cut and during the middle of it the torch just randomly raised. I give up on the THC for know until someome can tell me what i am doing wrong or Langmuir makes some updates to the software.
See the vide and still shot.
1:30 on the video is when the torch climbs and you can see the type of line i am cutting

I really want to use the THC but not that bad.
