I just started using my crossfire pro with a 45 xp about 2 months ago. since then it has been working great. I tried to cut a small sign last week and got this message. has anyone had this message before? If so, where should I start to correct it.
Ok, it tried to run. I would think for 18ga you want to run the smallest pierce delay you can, within the limits of the control box. (.4 or .5 sec)
As far as the initial question - Whenever I’m cutting multiple parts from a sheet, I want each part to be cut separately from the others. That way any warp or distortion doesn’t effect the final dimensions.
Based on this comment, you have Hypertherm and I do as well. Generally, you will need to add 0.3 to 0.5 seconds to the pierce delay recommended in the cut charts.
(Hypertherm and the Langmuir control box measures when the delay is measured differently. This is what accounts for this discrepancy.)
We really need the values you used to get a sense of whether the pierce delay is truly too short or if it might be something else. If you could supply more of you g-code file, that would have the pierce delay, cut height and pierce height that Terrance requested earlier.
I forgot tell you the work clamp is attached to the material.
I also went back and tried to cut 2 or 3 things had already cut before. They were 11 ga and 18 ga with the same result. I also went back 1 version on the software because I had updated to the newest version still the same result. I can’t believe this thing was working so good and now it won’t work at all.
After checking the swirl ring I did some more reading. I jogged the table checking for torch speed, i have no torch speed on the y axis. The instructions said to contact LS if you have no torch speed most likely to be the THC module.
Thanks for all the help.
