Repair/clean/service a small (3/8'') plasma cutter

Plasma cutter runs but does not cut. I believe it is caused by dirty/wet air suply.
Have had this problem in the past and took it in for service then it worked fine until now. I want to learn how to clean/service this thing myself. HELP!

thanks so much,
Mark Johnson

You need to put an air dryer on the line to help stamp out this problem and possibly an automatic water trap

What kind of air compressor do you need to run a plasma cutter? (how many psi, gallons, volts... and any other info...?)


Hi:

You will need at least the following:

25 CFH at 120 PSI
30 gallon reserve tank
220 V single or 3 Phase (that depends of your voltage available at your shop/home)

For cutting: set your plasma regulator to 75 psi.
For Gouging: set your plasma regulator to 65 psi.

That's all.

Spectrum 2050 plasma cutter . Cutter blows air and stops when trigger is pulled no pilot arc or any cutting when trig is released air flows again and stop after 10 sec new tips was working the day...


Check compressed air pressure is in limits otherwise unit will cut out. Try adjusting the pressure up. also make sure the supply pressure is correct as it may not be your plasma cutter at fault.

Internal componet failure, return the machine for repair. Who did you purchase it from?

Only cuts for 3 seconds, device still on


Possibly an internal short in the torch tip... the expendable components failing in the tip will cause the sensors in the machine to register a "no cut" or "free air arc" state and kill the power to the tip to prevent damage to the unit. Replace the tip components and double check the grounds connections.

No Arc on a Cut 40 Plasma cutter


Check your consumbales to be sure they are tight in the torch head. Check your ground be sure it's good and connected to the pc you are cutting. Make sure you are running air at 65 to 70 psi as it exits the torch. Email me if you have any other questions.

Hobart 250 a keeps cutting off the flame


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

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.

Plasma cutters support


Plasma Arc cutting is an excellent choice for most cutting applications but it is particularly well suited for applications where speed and excellent cut quality are important. Because of the intense heat of the plasma arc – around 40,000° F compared to 5,700° F, with gases used with Oxy-Fuel torches – the cut is clean with little or no dross.
