NTK FabWorks table setup with drain tank and Hypertherm wiring explained

3 & 4 on the CPC port.

3 is the furthest to the left on the top row and 4 is the furthest to the right on the second row (when facing it mounted in the CPC socket).

I found the cable on allicdata

The words “switch battery life” are interpreted as on and off. It also refers to an electronic component that can open a circuit, interrupt a current, or cause it to flow to other circuits. The most common switch is an electromechanical device that operates, with one or several electronic contacts. The “closed” contact indicates that the electronic contact is conducting, allowing current to flow; the “open” of the switch indicates that the electronic contact is not conducting to form an open circuit, and no current is allowed to flow.

Great post, two questions:

  1. Do the 75° and 15° torches use the same consumables?

  2. Does the 45xp package that comes with the 75° and Machine Torch only remove your step of moving the pin in the torch handle?


  1. Yes. Pretty much all the duramax torches use the same consumables, only the nozzles change. With nozzle changes, comes shield cup changes. Gouging and marking tips all interchange as well.

  2. Yes. Because it’s actually the machine torch, there’s no trigger.

Ok thanks for the quick response. Hypertherm’s literature that noted the 15º use toward gouging had me worried that It may use different consumables.
