*** CAUTION ***
Do not heat, cut or weld tanks, drums or containers
until the proper steps have been taken to insure that
such procedures will not cause flammable or toxic
vapours from substance inside. These can cause
an explosion even though the vessel has been
“cleaned”.Vent hollow castings or containers before
heating, cutting or welding. They may explode.

2. GENERAL DESCRIPTION & SAFEGUARDS
The plasma cutting unit generates constant current and has been designed to cut
metals. The cutting process is carried out through the melting of the metal caused by
high temperature created by the electric arc between the torch electrode and the base
metal. The molten material is removed by a high-speed jet of ionized gas (compressed
air is the type of gas used).
This cutting machine is manufactured with advanced inverter technology. With highquality component MOSFET and PWM technology, the inverter converts DC voltage,
which is rectified from input AC voltage, to high 100KHz frequency AC voltage; as a
consequence, the voltage is transformed and rectified. This results in a small size main
transformer and light weight in the inverter plasma cutter.
EMC
Before installing the plasma cutting unit, carry out an inspection of the surrounding are,
observing the
following guidelines:
1
Make sure that there are no other power supply cables, control line, telephone
leads or other equipment near the unit.
2
Make sure that there are no radio receivers or television appliances.
3
Make sure there are no computers or other control systems.
4
Make sure that there is no-one with a pacemaker or hearing aid in the area
around the unit.
5
Check the immunity of any other equipment operating in the same environment
In certain cases additional protective measures may be required.
Interference can be reduced in the following ways:
(5a) If there is interference in the power supply line, an E.M.C filter should be inserted
between the main and the unit.
(5b) The output cables of the unit should be shortened; these should be kept close
together and stretched along the ground.
(5c) All the panels of the unit should be correctly closed after carrying out maintenance.
Our plasma cutting units are supplied with the following devices.
1
Thermal protection devices which are installed at the points most subject to high
temperatures such as the power transformers and the rectifying units. A yellow light on
the front panel lights up when the thermal protection device intervenes.
2
Electric shock protection device which prevents the operator from coming into
contact with the live parts of the torch (such as the electrode) This consists in a safety
device built into the body of the torch which breaks the main power circuit when the end
part of the torch is removed to replace the electrode or the tip.
CAUTION:
A Pneumatic protection device which prevents damage to the torch due to operation
with little or no air supply is not supplied on this machine. Therefore great care must be
taken to ensure that the machine is always used with the correct clean dry air pressure
at 4.8 bar 90/lt per min.

NTRODUCTION
NOTE:
Your plasma cutting unit is fitted with sophisticated safeguards which
block functioning and therefore the cutting operations until all the safety conditions are
present. The plasma cutting technique requires dangerously high voltage for pilot arc
starting and during cutting, therefore the following safety rules must be observed with
great care:
INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
In order for the unit to function correctly, it must be installed properly.
Follow the procedure given below for correct installation:
1 Read the safety rules given in this manual carefully.
2 Check on receiving the unit that there are no defective parts or parts damaged
during transportation.
3 Attach air regulator as show in diagram Regulator Installation.
4 Set your unit up in an area which is adequately ventilated and make sure that
the air vents are not obstructed.
5 Prevent the fan from introducing dust or deposits into the machine.
6 Connect the power supply cable to a socket located as near as possible to the work
area, so that the unit can be switched off quickly in case of emergency.
7 Your machine has a 15 AMP plug fitted, before use check that the green/yellow
earth is connected to the earth pin socket of fitted plug.
8 Make sure that the mains supply switch and any fuses have a value which is the
same or 20% above the maximum current absorbed by the unit.
All fuses should be the slow-blow type.
9 Any extensions of power supply cable should have the same cross-section as
the power supply cable. The extension leads, however , should only be used when
absolutely necessary. It is important to note that any extension of mains cables or
torch cables will possibly affect the cutting performance of this cutting equipment,
due to the fact that the resistance of the cable will reduce voltage input, which is
determined by the length of the cable. The supplied length of main cables and torch
cables is recommended.
10 Fasten the earth clamp to the piece to be cut, making sure that the piece to be cut
and metal bench (if any) have been connected to earth by means of a cable with
adequate cross-section. If the surface of the piece to be cut is painted, rusty or
covered with insulating material, clean the surface so that satisfactory contact
between the piece and the earth clamp can be obtained.
11 Make sure that the torch has been assembled with the correct components and
that the cutting tip is suitable for the cutting current.
12 Connect air to regulator and adjust regulator to deliver 4.8 bar 90 ltr/min
13 Switch the unit on using the main switch located on the front panel.
14 Contact the copper tip of the torch to the work piece, press the button of the torch
until the arc-starting and raise the cutting torch about 1mm above the work piece,
and perform the cutting operation.
15 Once cutting is over, release the torch button to put out the arc. A period of
post-flow time 45 to 75 seconds (required for torch cooling) will follow. Do not
disconnect air until this cooling period has been completed. Failure to do this will
result in torch head damage.

INSTALLATION & OPERATION
UNI FLAME AUTOLIFT
CAUTION:
Do not point the torch jet at foreign bodies
CAUTION:
Avoid unnecessary lighting of the pilot arc to prevent excessive consumption of the
electrode and nozzle.
CAUTION:
During cutting the speed of the torch movement should be in accordance with the thickness of the piece to be cut. Excessive speed causes a return of incandescent towards
the torch which shortens the life of the parts of the torch most subject to wear and tear.
The build-up of scale on the nozzle should be removed as soon as possible.

OPERATION
Of the torch
CAUTION:
Before inspecting or changing the parts of the torch, disconnect the power supply to
the unit. Special tools are not required to replace torch parts. Simply unscrew the shield
cup and all the components of the torch can easily be replaced.
CAUTION:
Unscrew the sheild cup only after the cooling air flow has stooped
(the in observance of this precaution may damage the torch body)
1 Check the condition of the Electrode, Cutting tip and the Shield cup.
A worn electrode has a central 1.5-2mm deep crater.
New Electrode

Worn Electrode
Make sure that the hole in the cutting tip is not too wide or deformed.
An excessively wide or deformed hole may cause problems for the cutting arc.
Check whether the holes in the protective ring are clean. Blocked holes or a
damaged ring may damage the torch due to overheating.
Check the condition of the torch sheath, making sure it has no parts which are worn
or cut or signs of electrical discharge. Replace worn or damaged parts immediately.
Of the unit:
Maintenance can only be carried out on the unit if the person in charge of this
operation has the necessary technical qualifivations, knowledge and the correct tools,
If this is not the case, contact your nearest service centre.
1 Inspect the unit every 3 - 4 months (depending on how often the unit is used) and
use compressed air to remove any dust deposits, This must be carried out by a qualified service agent.
CAUTION:
Only use dry compressed air for cleaning.
Do not point jet of air at the electronic circuits.
2
Check the air filter regularly. Any condensate must be drained off immediately when
the compressed air supply is removed. To simplify this operation,
the plasma cutter should be disconnected from the compressed air supply unit
whenever it is left unused for more than 1 week.
