any idea on the feed rate that starts to give problems?
We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.

Hi All,
the company I work for sell and repair Hypertherm gear and I luv em! Don't get to
fix many of them, they don't breakdown much and usually torches, air components
and sometimes a fan when they do.

Don't have the info in front of me but they make little add-on boards for machine control,
I know they have a voltage divider in there but if memory serves also an 'arc ok' logic
signal and of course a trigger circuit to start the arc. The boards are small and so are
reasonably cheap. Not sure whether they make one for the Powermax 30 but certainly
for the larger units.

The Powermax 125 is a beast, 25mm steel at 1m/min and 40mm steel about 400 mm/min!

Without doubt Hypertherm is expensive stuff but they beat the hell out of any other machine
I've come across. I suppose I'm biased but in this case I can claim with good reason.
