More Z-Axis Issues
Actually, when I think about this a bit more, I'm guessing cut charts don't exist for this machine so maybe reducing the cut height is probably the easiest thing to change. By being a bit lower, the arc might be able stretch more as it runs out of material. Just an idea.
You are correct there are no cut charts for the Harbor Freight plasma cutters. I will try your suggestions on cut height and acceleration.
I will tinker with other settings such as the G64 setting and see if I can make it better. I am also going to get my hands on a Hypertherm PowerMax 45xp later in the week. Maybe I'll get better results from it.
It does requires the Ark OK signal, be it a signal directly from the plasma cutter or from Proma/THCAD etc. regardless of whether THC is Auto/Disabled/Enabled.
Ok thanks. I had mounted my THC on my old plasma cutter because it did not have a divided signal out. I was hoping to test this out before taking the old setup apart.
If I manually jump the arc ok pin so that it stays high, everthing works as it should.
