Hobart 250 a keeps cutting off the flame

I really don't know anything about a plasma cutter I bought it new a few years back and it always cuts the flame off while cutting metal and it doesn't cut real good either.

If you have a bad air supply then the moisture in the air will cause the torch to cut off and the cut quality depends also on air supply,speed,metal thickness and condition of your consumables,meaning your electrode and other related parts in the torch tip.Hope this helps

Would you purchase the 400 hobart or go to 500 hobart plasma they seem to cut the same thickness on the metal chart..


It's all about duration. How much metal do you need to cut continuously. Although the 400 will cut a similar spec it won't hold out as long. So if it;s lots of short cuts the 400 is fine, if you need to cut thicker gauge for longer period go 500.

Hi,


I would recommend replacing the electrode, and maybe the tip, other that that it sounds like you aren't getting a good enough ground for it to start.

Hobart 250ci quit working


Provided Air is between 60 and 80 psi (common operating range).
Power is measured to be in range as per label or manual specs.
Replaced all consummables on the torch head.
Usually the next step is to change the Torch Head. After all else fails this is usually the problem, especially if the torch head became hot while cutting.

Plasma cutter started cutting at an angle even when held perfectly perpendicular. New consumables were put on, same amperage, same air pressure. I'm stumped!


did you put all new consumables in ,sounds like there is still old one there.make sure nozzel is put back together right.I have worked on welders and plasmas for years,the torch head is very tempermental.

Plasma cutter wont cut steady


Is your air compressor able to keep up with the continuous regulated air flow?
If positive air flow is not constant same pressure all the time
cutting will stop..>>

Also if your movements are to fast and or material to thick machine will behave that way..

Plasma cutters Question


There are a few things about plasma cutting safety that are different from general welding safety tips This short list of plasma cutter safety tips is geared toward light duty plasma cutting using compressed air not large industrial units that use gas mixtures and water cutting tables. Electric Shock Can Kill - Operating a plasma cutter completes an electric circuit between the torch and the workpiece. The workpiece and anything touching the workpiece are part of the electrical circuit. - Never touch the torch body, workpiece or the water in a water table when the plasma system is operating. Voltages & Currents - Plasma cutter output voltages are much greater than welding voltages, usually 100-200 volts. Precautionary Measures - Do not pick up the workpiece, including the waste cutoff, while you cut. Leave the workpiece in place on the workbench with the work cable attached during the cutting process. - During plasma cutting operations do not move the work clamp. Wear insulated gloves and boots, and keep your body and clothing dry. - Do not stand, sit or lie on or otherwise touch any wet surface when using the plasma cutter system. - Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats or covers big enough to prevent any physical contact with the work or ground. If you must work in or near a damp area, use extreme caution. Work Cable - Ensure metal-to-metal contact between work cable and workpiece or work table. - Work cable clamp should make contact with clean metal free of rust, dirt, painted surfaces, etc. - Do not attach work cable to the piece that will fall away when the cut is complete Plasma cutter Arc Rays Plasma cutter arc rays produce intense visible and invisible (ultraviolet and infrared) rays that can burn eyes and skin. Protective Clothing - Guantlet gloves, safety shoes and hat. - Flame-retardant clothing to cover all exposed areas. - Cuffless trousers to prevent entry of sparks and slag. - Remove combustibles, such as a butane lighter or matches, from your pockets before cutting. Noise Levels of Plasma Arc Cutting - Plasma arc cutting systems can generate noise levels in excess of 120 dB during high-amperage cutting operations. - Ear protection should be used when operating or working near plasma arc cutting operations. Toxic Fumes & Gases Plasma arc cutting can produce toxic fumes and gases that deplete oxygen and cause serious injury. - Keep the cutting area well ventilated or use an approved air-supplied respirator. - Do not cut in locations near degreasing, cleaning or spraying operations. The vapors from certain chlorinated solvents decompose to form phosgene gas when exposed to ultraviolet radiation. Pacemakers & Hearing Aids - Pacemaker and hearing aid operation can be affected by magnetic fields from high currents. Pacemaker and hearing aid wearers should consult a doctor before going near any plasma arc cutting and gouging operations Overall Plasma Safety - The plasma arc cutting process can be very safe. - By paying attention to safety standards and correctly setting up and operating the system, plasma arc cutting poses no more a threat than most welding processes.
