Question about Welding Tools
I am having a problem with my Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 81 plasma cutter, it is fitted with a SL100 Machine torch and bolted onto a Torchmate CNC table. The cut it makes is beveled in one direction (not like when it cuts holes were the bevel is expected). This bevel is approx 15-18 degrees. I have done everything I can think of and I am at a loss. I have:
Lecovert, cheers but no luck I have done all these things more than a dozen times. After stricpping the machine to bits and reassembling, I then then started testing by removing parts or interchanging if possible. I have found that the arc voltage controller is most likely responsible as the problem. When it is disconected from the system and I trick it into running semi-manually the bevel is reduced to about 3degrees, which may be just an alignment problem with the torch and the cut surface. I will go on to cheching the alighment and try and get a new Arc voltage controller for the Torchmate CNC side of things.

Worked on units for several years,my first thought was torch consumables,then torch itself,so here we go.make sure all the consumables are exact for the torch,make sure all parts are brand new,(all parts,that way we can elimenate that part of trouble shooting).check that the ground is tight on the unit and work peice.When you bought the new torch head did you also buy the lead to the head?If not possible that could be the problem.
