Plasma cutting setup and speeds (and other data).

Take this data over with you to the Hypertherm Powermax 65 Plasma cutter.  This works with the CNC and the hand torch.  I got this from the Hypertherm Powermax 65 manual (click for the actual manual).  Some of the data is not needed for the hand torch, but needs to be inputed into the CNC controller.

1. You will need to choose your setup of Shielded (for us this is Hand) or UnShielded (for us this is CNC).

2. Choose your amperage 45 or 65 (Mostly you will do 65Amps) or if you want to use FineCut.

3. Setup the torch with the desired consumables and choose your chart link below for access to the speeds, volts height pierce delay and pierce height.

4. Manage your Kerf thickness with this chart
