FineCut, Low Speed Fine Cut Charts for Hypertherm 65/85

I have new cut charts for use with the FineCut consumables as well as kerf width compensation charts for the Hypertherm Powermax65/85 systems that have been developed over the last few months in Hypertherm's labs. These new charts are designed to keep cut speeds below 150 inches per minute....as compared to the original charts that had many speeds in excess of 150 ipm. These new charts include specs for steel, stainless and aluminum, in both imperial and metric versions, for materials thinner than 10 gauge.

All of the necessary settings including Pierce height, Pierce Delay, Cut Height, estimated arc voltage, and cut speeds are shown for each thickness.

I personally have not yet tried these specs.....but I have faith in the work that Hypertherm's process engineers do! These are in .pdf format, so you will have to email me for the files as I do not know how to post a .pdf document on this site.....if anyone knows how, let me know!

These will work with Duramax torch conversions on the Powermax1000, 1250 and 1650 as well.

Best regards, Jim Colt Hypertherm jim.colt@hypertherm.com

Ditto. I did it for TM when I got the .stp files for the 4x4 Growth Series table.

Everything looks great to me except.... Why does the finecut kerf and low speed fine cut kerf in this new pdf vary so much compared to the finecut kerf in my powermax 65 manual?

Im talking like half the width. In your pdf the finecut and low speed finecut are pretty close. But look at the fine cut in the powermax 65/85 book and they are so different. I dont know which to use.

All the other kerf numbers seem to match.

When speed changes, kerf changes. When height changes, kerf changes. When consumables wear, kerf changes. When air pressure changes, kerf changes. If you are using the new charts....use the kerf specs that came with them.....if you are using the old charts....use the specs in the manual.

These charts were just pried out of our process engineering groups hands today.....I have been asking for this project to be done for over a year. They are not yet released to the general public....so you will not see them yet on our web site or in any of the operators manuals. The official release is not until June.....as they are being released with some other stuff that cannot yet be discussed.....

As I said, I have not tried these specs myself....I hope to this weekend....so any feedback will be valuable. I notice that our techs indicate a couple of thicknesses that could not be cut dross free.....but dross was kept to a minimum. Results may vary.....(different batches of steel)....

Pay attention to the cut height.....it becomes even more critical at lower speeds, and I can guarantee that the specs used in our labs were pretty accurate....and the carbon and silicone content (these elements in steel cause dross) were at controlled....but normal levels in the test steel that we use.


Best regards, Jim

Jim, the help that you provide in these forums is outstanding. Part of the reason I went with the powermax 65 over the cutmaster a60.

I just got the 65 hooked up to my 2x4, but can't seem to locate any cut charts for aluminum with the fine cut consumables. Are fine cut consumables not recommended for aluminum?

Thanks,
Jesse

The original Finecut specs do not have aluminum cutting specs....the new low speed cut charts for FineCut do have specifications for aluminum. If you have not downloaded them from an earlier post...then email me directly and I can send you the file.

I'm seeing the kerfs for aluminum, but the cut chart isn't there.
