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

SOURCE: Plasma cutter is burning through electrodes

Try turning down the juice. Tungsten is very durable, but is prone to melt also at excessive torch output.

SOURCE: can i plug my miller spectrum 1000 plasma cutter

no you idiot! the plug is different & even if you could somehow, its half the power output. Your plasma welders for the matter, have whats called a duty cycle, which plays into effect.... electrical load level....ect.
HOWEVER-- you can plg ito the same outlet as your stove, washer & dryer plugs. DON'T BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN, The wife will kill you!

How do I wire the plug to a Lotos plasma cutter for 220 volt ?


There are three wires on the machine, RED BLUE and YELLOW GREEN. In a standard US 220 VAC connection there is red, black and white. RED is connected to red, BLUE is connected to black and YELLOW GREEN is connected to white.

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.

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.

I'm interested in buying a used Pro Cut 80 that on the inside of welder says 460/ 580 volt ? connection. Can this welder be converted to 240 volts? What if its connected to 240 volts. Will it work? Thanks


I doubt it. You will need the model number to determine for sure. There are two models that are listed for 460/580 with no mention of other voltages. Get the exact model number and you can download a manual at: http://www.mylincolnelectric.com/Catalog/lecooperatorsmanualsearch.aspx

How do u change from 110 to 220 volts. Do u just


There should be a wiring diagram label on the inside cover that tells you where to connect the leads for 220 volt operation. I assume you do not have the manual, so you can also call 1-800-332-3281 for Hobart assistance and a manual.

Just purchased this and need to know what the blue wire is, the brown is and the green is. (from China of course). 'Thanks, RSTAR CT520 PLasma cutter/tig/arc welder 3 in one


If those are the power input, then the green is the grounding wire (safety ground).

If the unit is 220/240 volt, then the blue AND brown are the hot wires.
Neutral would not be used in this case.

If the unit is 120 volt, then the blue is the hot and the brown is the neutral, but your unit probably requires the 240 volt. Check the owners manual and label on the unit.

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.
