Tips for using machine plasma cutting torch

In the process of plasma automatic cutting controlled by CNC machine, the operator will leave the operating platform, or far away from the cutting workpiece. Because of improper operation, it often causes damage to the cutting gun. This issue will focus on how to correctly use the machine plasma cutting gun to avoid loss.
Taking the fine cutting gun as an example, the plasma can be divided into several parts. The damage of the gun head will lead to the scrapping of the whole cutting gun, and the parts on the gun head can be replaced and used again. As shown in the figure below:


1. The gas electric output and arc lead should be insulated separately;

2. There is a sealing ring at the water-cooled plasma electrode. After the electrode is assembled, the external water stains must be cleaned before the installation and use;

3. The detachable parts such as cutting nozzle are vulnerable parts, which need to be replaced immediately if they are damaged;

4. If the cutting nozzle and other parts are damaged and not replaced in time, other parts and even the cutting gun head will be scrapped;

5. The high oil-water content in the air is easy to cause damage and scrap of the cutting gun. The air must be kept dry. The recommended power of the air compressor is more than 1.5KW, and the air storage tank is not less than 50L;

6. If the cutting seam becomes larger and inclined, the color around the cutting part changes seriously, the arc light changes color, and the parts have defects, check and replace the damaged parts in time.
