Issue with z axis on plasma table
« on: November 05, 2021, 03:03:16 PM »
Good day, having issues with z axis as I start a cut program I zero torch tip when it just touches plate, program is set to pierce at 4 and cut at 3mm. Start program torch moves to position and makes 1st cut, torch raises and moves to next position as it lowers, issue is torch will drop an extra 4 mm or around that each time it raises and lowers. So on 2nd cut the torch is touching the plate. Makes cut raises and moves to position and will now really push hard on the plate.
I did a test yesterday and started with torch high enough I could fit my finger between torch and plate and by the time it was doing final cut was just touching the plate.
Curious if this is a problem with mach3 or in sheet-cam. My thoughts are mach3, any help would be amazing
