Hi guys, I’v had two crossfires so far been on here a while. Patiently waiting for the Pro to show up. Been kinda dreading the learning curve and issues. I have enough issues between my machine now and hyp 65 on a daily cutting basis (story in of itself). My question is, what is an ideal plunge rate? All my programs have tons of pierces, I’m talking almost 100 in a 1x2ft piece of material. The hyp systems as great as they are, have issues with very fast back to back pierces, thus creating misfires. I’v talked to them multiple times about this and they are well aware. So my cut times are very critical since I basically cut production. I’m hoping the THC will help with cycle time for my plasma to catch up but I don’t want to add too much time in between cuts either.
1.So question again, what is a good plunge rate?
2. were do I program in sheetcam how far up the torch goes after a cut? or is that just a default height?
I would like the torch to only travel UP a small amount when Im doing back to back circles, no point in the machine running up 3" for something like that.
3. I’m assuming in sheetcam I can adjust the THC plunge rate just like I can the feed rate.
