Safety Precautions
Safety - English
WARNING: These Safety Precautions are
for your protection. They summarize precautionary information from the references
listed in Additional Safety Information section. Before performing any installation or operating
procedures, be sure to read and follow the safety precautions listed below as well as all other manuals, material
safety data sheets, labels, etc. Failure to observe Safety
Precautions can result in injury or death.
FIRES AND EXPLOSIONS -- Heat from
flames and arcs can start fires. Hot
slag or sparks can also cause fires and
explosions. Therefore:
1. Remove all combustible materials well away from
the work area or cover the materials with a protective non-flammable covering. Combustible materials
include wood, cloth, sawdust, liquid and gas fuels,
solvents, paints and coatings, paper, etc.
2. Hot sparks or hot metal can fall through cracks or
crevices in floors or wall openings and cause a hidden smoldering fire or fires on the floor below. Make
certain that such openings are protected from hot
sparks and metal.“
3. Do not weld, cut or perform other hot work until
the work piece has been completely cleaned so that
there are no substances on the work piece which
might produce flammable or toxic vapors. Do not do
hot work on closed containers. They may explode.
4. Have fire extinguishing equipment handy for instant
use, such as a garden hose, water pail, sand bucket,
or portable fire extinguisher. Be sure you are trained
in its use.
5. Do not use equipment beyond its ratings. For example, overloaded welding cable can overheat and
create a fire hazard.
6. After completing operations, inspect the work area
to make certain there are no hot sparks or hot metal
which could cause a later fire. Use fire watchers when
necessary.
7. For additional information, refer to NFPA Standard
51B, "Fire Prevention in Use of Cutting and Welding
Processes", available from the National Fire Protection Association, Battery march Park, Quincy, MA
02269.
PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS -Some welding, cutting, and gouging
processes are noisy and require ear
protection. The arc, like the sun, emits
ultraviolet (UV) and other radiation
and can injure skin and eyes. Hot metal can cause
burns. Training in the proper use of the processes
and equipment is essential to prevent accidents.
Therefore:
1. Always wear safety glasses with side shields in any
work area, even if welding helmets, face shields, and
goggles are also required.
2. Use a face shield fitted with the correct filter and
cover plates to protect your eyes, face, neck, and
ears from sparks and rays of the arc when operating
or observing operations. Warn bystanders not to
watch the arc and not to expose themselves to the
rays of the electric-arc or hot metal.
3. Wear flameproof gauntlet type gloves, heavy longsleeve shirt, cuffless trousers, high-topped shoes,
and a welding helmet or cap for hair protection, to
protect against arc rays and hot sparks or hot metal.
A flameproof apron may also be desirable as protection against radiated heat and sparks.
4. Hot sparks or metal can lodge in rolled up sleeves,
trouser cuffs, or pockets. Sleeves and collars should
be kept buttoned, and open pockets eliminated from
the front of clothing.
5. Protect other personnel from arc rays and hot
sparks with a suitable non-flammable partition or
curtains.
6. Use goggles over safety glasses when chipping slag
or grinding. Chipped slag may be hot and can fly far.
Bystanders should also wear goggles over safety
glasses.
ELECTRICAL SHOCK -- Contact with
live electrical parts and ground can
cause severe injury or death. DO NOT
use AC welding current in damp areas,
if movement is confined, or if there is
danger of falling.
5
safety precautions
1. Be sure the power source frame (chassis) is connected to the ground system of the input power.
3. Welders should use the following procedures to
minimize exposure to EMF:
2. Connect the work piece to a good electrical
ground.
A.Route the electrode and work cables together.
Secure them with tape when possible.
3. Connect the work cable to the work piece. A poor
or missing connection can expose you or others
to a fatal shock.
B. Never coil the torch or work cable around your
body.
C.Do not place your body between the torch and
work cables. Route cables on the same side of
your body.
4. Use well-maintained equipment. Replace worn or
damaged cables.
5. Keep everything dry, including clothing, work
area, cables, torch/electrode holder, and power
source.
D.Connect the work cable to the work piece as close
as possible to the area being welded.
E. Keep welding power source and cables as far
away from your body as possible.
6. Make sure that all parts of your body are insulated
from work and from ground.
7. Do not stand directly on metal or the earth while
working in tight quarters or a damp area; stand
on dry boards or an insulating platform and wear
rubber-soled shoes.
8. Put on dry, hole-free gloves before turning on the
power.
Therefore:
9. Turn off the power before removing your gloves.
FUMES AND GASES -- Fumes and
gases, can cause discomfort or harm,
particularly in confined spaces. Do
not breathe fumes and gases. Shielding gases can cause asphyxiation.
1. Always provide adequate ventilation in the work area
by natural or mechanical means. Do not weld, cut, or
gouge on materials such as galvanized steel, stainless steel, copper, zinc, lead, beryllium, or cadmium
unless positive mechanical ventilation is provided.
Do not breathe fumes from these materials.
10. Refer to ANSI/ASC Standard Z49.1 (listed on
next page) for specific grounding recommendations. Do not mistake the work lead for a ground
cable.
2. Do not operate near degreasing and spraying operations. The heat or arc rays can react with chlorinated
hydrocarbon vapors to form phosgene, a highly
toxic gas, and other irritant gases.
ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC FIELDS
— May be dangerous. Electric current flowing through any conductor causes localized Electric and
Magnetic Fields (EMF). Welding and
cutting current creates EMF around welding cables
and welding machines. Therefore:
3. If you develop momentary eye, nose, or throat irritation while operating, this is an indication that
ventilation is not adequate. Stop work and take
necessary steps to improve ventilation in the work
area. Do not continue to operate if physical discomfort persists.
1. Welders having pacemakers should consult their
physician before welding. EMF may interfere with
some pacemakers.
4. Refer to ANSI/ASC Standard Z49.1 (see listing below)
for specific ventilation recommendations.
2. Exposure to EMF may have other health effects which
are unknown.

4. Les étincelles et les projections de métal incandescent
risquent de se loger dans les manches retroussées,
les rebords de pantalons ou les poches. Il est recommandé de garder boutonnés le col et les manches et
de porter des vêtements sans poches en avant.
5. Protégez toute personne se trouvant à proximité des
étincelles et des rayons de l'arc à l'aide d'un rideau ou
d'une cloison ininflammable.
6. Portez des lunettes étanches par dessus vos lunettes
de sécurité lors des opérations d'écaillage ou de
meulage du laitier. Les écailles de laitier incandescent
peuvent être projetées à des distances considérables.
Les personnes se trouvant à proximité doivent également porter des lunettes étanches par dessus leur
lunettes de sécurité.
CHOC ÉLECTRIQUE -- Le contact avec
des pièces électriques ou les pièces
de mise à la terre sous tension peut
causer des blessures graves ou mortelles. NE PAS utiliser un courant de
soudage c.a. dans un endroit humide, en espace
restreint ou si un danger de chute se pose.
13
sÉCURITÉ
1. Assurez-vous que le châssis de la source
d'alimentation est branché au système de mise à
la terre de l'alimentation d'entrée.
2. Branchez la pièce à traiter à une bonne mise de
terre électrique.
3. Branchez le câble de masse à la pièce à traiter et
assurez une bonne connexion afin d'éviter le risque
de choc électrique mortel.
4. Utilisez toujours un équipement correctement
entretenu. Remplacez les câbles usés ou endommagés. 5. Veillez à garder votre environnement sec, incluant
les vêtements, l'aire de travail, les câbles, le porteélectrode/torche et la source d'alimentation.
6. Assurez-vous que tout votre corps est bien isolé
de la pièce à traiter et des pièces de la mise à la
terre.
7. Si vous devez effectuer votre travail dans un espace
restreint ou humide, ne tenez vous pas directement sur le métal ou sur la terre; tenez-vous sur
des planches sèches ou une plate-forme isolée et
portez des chaussures à semelles de caoutchouc.
8. Avant de mettre l'équipement sous tension, isolez
vos mains avec des gants secs et sans trous.
9. Mettez l'équipement hors tension avant d'enlever
vos gants.
10. Consultez ANSI/ASC Standard Z49.1 (listé à
la page suivante) pour des recommandations
spécifiques concernant les procédures de mise à
la terre. Ne pas confondre le câble de masse avec
le câble de mise à la terre.
3. Les soudeurs doivent suivre les procédures suivantes
pour minimiser l'exposition aux champs électriques
et magnétiques :
A.Acheminez l'électrode et les câbles de masse
ensemble. Fixez-les à l'aide d'une bande adhésive
lorsque possible.
B. Ne jamais enrouler la torche ou le câble de masse
autour de votre corps.
C.Ne jamais vous placer entre la torche et les câbles
de masse. Acheminez tous les câbles sur le même
côté de votre corps.
D.Branchez le câble de masse à la pièce à traiter le
plus près possible de la section à souder.
E. Veillez à garder la source d'alimentation pour le
soudage et les câbles à une distance appropriée
de votre corps.
LES VAPEURS ET LES GAZ -- peuvent
causer un malaise ou des dommages
corporels, plus particulièrement
dans les espaces restreints. Ne respirez pas les vapeurs et les gaz. Le
gaz de protection risque de causer
l'asphyxie. Par conséquent :
CHAMPS ÉLECTRIQUES ET MAGNÉTIQUES — comportent un risque de
danger. Le courant électrique qui
passe dans n'importe quel conducteur produit des champs électriques
et magnétiques localisés. Le soudage et le courant de coupage créent des champs électriques
et magnétiques autour des câbles de soudage et
l'équipement. Par conséquent :
1. Un soudeur ayant un stimulateur cardiaque doit
consulter son médecin avant d'entreprendre une
opération de soudage. Les champs électriques et
magnétiques peuvent causer des ennuis pour certains stimulateurs cardiaques.
2. L'exposition à des champs électriques et magnétiques peut avoir des effets néfastes inconnus pour
la santé.
14
1. Assurez en permanence une ventilation adéquate
dans l'aire de travail en maintenant une ventilation naturelle ou à l'aide de moyens mécanique.
N'effectuez jamais de travaux de soudage, de
coupage ou de gougeage sur des matériaux tels que
l'acier galvanisé, l'acier inoxydable, le cuivre, le zinc,
le plomb, le berylliym ou le cadmium en l'absence
de moyens mécaniques de ventilation efficaces. Ne
respirez pas les vapeurs de ces matériaux.
2. N'effectuez jamais de travaux à proximité d'une
opération de dégraissage ou de pulvérisation. Lorsque la chaleur
ou le rayonnement de l'arc entre en contact avec les
vapeurs d'hydrocarbure chloré, ceci peut déclencher
la formation de phosgène ou d'autres gaz irritants,
tous extrêmement toxiques.
3. Une irritation momentanée des yeux, du nez ou de la
gorge au cours d'une opération indique que la ventilation n'est pas adéquate. Cessez votre travail afin
de prendre les mesures nécessaires pour améliorer
la ventilation dans l'aire de travail. Ne poursuivez
pas l'opération si le malaise persiste.
4. Consultez ANSI/ASC Standard Z49.1 (à la page
suivante) pour des recommandations spécifiques
concernant la ventilation.

section 3installation
3.1 General
As shipped, the power source is configured for 575 V, 60
Hz input. If using 208, 230, 380, 415, or 460 V input, the
jumper input power cables located on the auto transformer must be repositioned to the desired input voltage
for safe operation. To gain access to the autotransformer,
remove the right side panel. (See Figure 3-1.)
Proper installation can contribute materially to the satisfactory and trouble-free operation of the Precision Plasmarc System. It is suggested that each step in this section
be studied and carefully followed.
A line (wall) disconnect switch with fuses or circuit breakers should be provided at the main power panel (see Table
3-1 for fuse rating). The input power cable of the power
source may be connected directly to the disconnect
switch or a proper plug and receptacle may be purchased
from a local electrical supplier. If using plug/receptacle
combination, see Table 3-1 for recommended input
conductors for connecting receptacle to line disconnect
switch.
3.2 Equipment Required
A. Gas Supply and Hoses. Gas supply may be from a bulk
source or from a bank of manifold cylinders and regulated to supply 125 psig (8.6 bars) to the Flow Control
(Gas Flowing).
B. Work Lead. No. 4 AWG (25 mm2) cable is recommended
for connecting workpiece to power source.
C. Primary Input Cable. See Section 3.4.
The following procedure explains the proper installation steps for connecting primary electrical power to the
power source. (See Figure 3-1.)
3.3 Location
Adequate ventilation is necessary to provide proper
cooling of the power source. Minimize the amount of
dirt, dust, and excessive heat to which the equipment is
exposed. There should be at least 2 feet (0.6m) of clearance between the power source and wall or any other
obstruction to allow freedom of air movement through
the power source.
A. Remove right side panel.
B. Ensure input power cable is disconnected from all electrical sources.
Table 3-1. Recommended Sizes For
Input Conductors and Line Fuses
Installing or placing any type of filtering device will restrict
the volume of intake air, thereby subjecting the power
source internal components to overheating. Use of any
type of filter device voids the warranty.
Input Requirements
3.4 Primary Electrical Input Connections (Figure 3-1)
ELECTRIC SHOCK CAN KILL! Precautionary measures
should be taken to provide maximum protection
against electrical shock. Be sure that all power is off
by opening the line (wall) disconnect switch and by

F. Torch Mounting Options.
1.
The torch is normally mounted by the sleeve.
2.
For more precise mounting, the torch can be
mounted by the 1.812" (46 mm) dia collar shown
(see Figure 3-10). This insulated collar and its shoulder are machined relative to the nozzle retainer
thread on the torch body and is held concentric
to the cutting nozzle within a total indicator reading of 0.010 inches (0.25 mm) or the nozzle bore
is within 0.005 inches of any point on the 1.812
dia.
NOTE
When mounting, be sure not to cover the small vent hole
in the side of the sleeve. This hole prevents coolant from
building inside the sleeve should a leak occur in a service
line.

Alt.
Due to the high electrical conductivity, use of tap water or
commercial antifreeze must NOT be used for torch cooling. A specially formulated torch coolant, P/N 156F05 (1
gallon (3.8 l) container) is available and recommended for
torch cooling. The coolant also provides freeze protection
down to -34° C.

CUTTING QUALITY
5.1 cut angle
Cut squareness is always a concern when using nitrogen
gas. The cut angle is referred to as either being positive
or negative (Figure 5-1). With a positive cut angle, the
top dimension of the part is slightly less than the bottom
dimension. With a negative cut angle, the top dimension
is slightly greater than the bottom dimension. The cut
angle is controlled by standoff (arc voltage), cutting speed,
and cutting amperage. If the cutting speed and amperage
are correct and the part has an excessive positive angle,
the standoff is too high. Begin lowering the arc voltage
in increments of 5 volts, observing cut squareness. There
will always be slight top edge rounding of the part when
using nitrogen.
The optimum torch height is just before the part begins to
develop a negative cut angle. To expand upon the other
two variables, if the torch standoff is correct, too fast of a
cutting speed will result in a positive cut angle; too slow of
a travel speed will result in a negative cut angle. Too high
or too low of current also produces a positive cut angle.
Oxygen plasma will also produce the same positive or
negative cut angle as nitrogen. The cut angle is controlled
by the torch standoff (arc voltage) cutting speed, and cutting amperage. The major difference is the sharp top edge
of the part. The positive angle changes but the sharp top
edge remains. If speeds and currents are correct, lower
the arc voltage in increments of 5 volts until the cut angle
begins to go negative or the cut face is under cut. At this
point, increase voltage until positive angle reappears. This
is the optimum cut squareness for these conditions.

ARC VOLTAGE/STANDOFF
Standoff and arc voltage are proportional.
The higher the torch above the plate (standoff), the higher the operating voltage and vice
versa.

LAG LINES
These lines appear on the cut surface. They
are used to determine if your
process parameters are correct.
Figure 5-2. Cut Quality
If it has an excessive bevel or rounded top edge, it may
be the standoff (arc voltage) is set too high (Figure 5-3).
Lower the voltage until the excessive bevel or rounded
top edge disappears. On material thickness 1/4 inch (6
mm) and greater, a standoff too close may result in a negative cut angle (Figure 5-5).
5.2 voltage and cut quality.
Standoff (arc voltage) has a direct influence on cut
quality
and squareness. It is recommended that prior to cutting, all cutting parameters are set to the manufacturer's suggested conditions. A sample cut should be
made fol-lowed by a close examination of the part.

5.4 Dross formation.
Top dross usually appears as splatter near the top edge of
the kerf. This is a result of torch standoff (arc voltage) set
too high or a cutting speed set too fast. Use the parameter charts for recommended speed. The most common
problem is torch standoff or arc voltage control. Simply
lower the voltage settings in increments of 5 volts until
the top dross disappears. If an arc voltage control is not
being used, simply lower the torch manually until the top
dross disappears (Figure 5-7).
The correct cutting arc voltage also has an influence on
dross formation. If the arc voltage is set too high, the cut
angle becomes positive. In addition, dross forms on the
bottom edge of the part. This occurs because we are now
trying to cut the part with the feather tip of the plasma
arc. This dross is usually very tenacious and requires chipping and grinding for removal. Too low of a cutting voltage results in an undercutting of the parts or negative cut
angle. Dross formation usually occurs but in most cases
removes easily (Figure 5-6)

5.5summary.
Arc voltage is not an independent variable. It is dependent upon cutting amperage, nozzle size, torch standoff,
cut gas flow rate and cutting speed. An increase in arc
voltage can result from a decrease in cutting speed, an
increase in cutting amperage, a decrease in nozzle size,
an increase in gas flow, an increase in cut water flow or an
increase in torch standoff. Assuming that all of the variables are set to the manufacturer's settings, torch standoff
becomes the most influential variable to the process.
Good and accurate height control is a necessity in producing excellent cut quality.

MAINTENANCE
6.1 General
G. With all input power disconnected, and with proper
eye and face protection on, blow out the inside of the
power source, the flow control, and the junction box
using low-pressure dry compressed air.
If this equipment does not operate properly, stop work
immediately and investigate the cause of the malfunction.
Maintenance work must be performed by an experienced
person, and electrical work by a trained electrician. Do
NOT permit untrained persons to inspect, clean, or repair
this equipment. Use only recommended replacement
parts.
6.3 Torch Consumable Parts
Make sure power switch on the Power Source is in OFF
position before working on the torch.
Spare parts kit P/N37609 is available for maintaining the
PT-24 torch. For contents and recommended uses, see
Figure 6-1 and Process Data Sheets.
Be sure that the wall disconnect switch or wall circuit
breaker is open before attempting any inspection or
work inside of the Power Source, the junction box, the
flow control box or the PT-24 torch.
6.4 gas pressure switch
6.2 Inspection and Cleaning
The pressure switches are factory set to provide precise
control of the cooling gas and plasma gas pressure. The
two switches are located in the junction box. The pressure
adjustment wheels on the pressure switches should not
be touched. Consult your ESAB representative if you have
determined that the pressure switches are not functioning
properly.
Frequent inspection and cleaning of the Precision Plasmarc System is recommended for safety and proper
operation. Some suggestions for inspecting and cleaning
are as follows:
A. Check work cable to workpiece connection.
6.5pt-24 torch description
B. Check safety earth ground at workpiece and at power
source chassis.
See Table 2-6 for overall size and general configuration.
C. Check heat shield on torch. It should be replaced if
damaged.
A. Mounting. The torch can be mounted by the sleeve
or by the 1.812 inches (46 mm) dia machined surface
shown (see Figure 3-10). This insulated surface and its
shoulder are machined relative to the nozzle retainer
thread on the torch body and is held concentric to the
cutting nozzle within a total indicator reading of 0.010
inches (0.25 mm) or the nozzle bore is within 0.005
inches of any point on the 1.812 dia. When mounting
be sure not to cover the small vent hole in the side of
the sleeve. This hole prevents coolant from building
inside the sleeve should a leak occur in a service line.
D. Check the torch electrode and cutting nozzle for wear
on a daily basis. Remove spatter, resharpen point, or
replace if necessary.
E. Make sure cable and hoses are not damaged or
kinked.
F. Make sure all plugs, fittings, and ground connections
are tight.
B. Service Lines. Both the 4.5 and 17 ft (1.4 m and 5.2 m)
long lines are shielded and connect to the junction box
by a friction fit grounded connection.
Water or oil occasionally accumulates in compressed
air lines. Be sure to direct the first blast of air away
from the equipment to avoid damage to the junction
box or flow control box.
C. Water Cooling. Coolant enters the torch through the
power cable (-), circulates through the torch body and
the electrode, crosses over to the nozzle (+) section of
the torch body through nonconductive bypass tubes,
travels back through the body and circulates between
the nozzle retainer and the nozzle, then back through the
torch body to the junction box via the pilot arc cable.
69
section 6
MAINTENANCE
D. Be especially careful not to get dirt or foreign matter in
the check valve fittings where the plasma cut and start
gases are attached. If however dirt or other foreign matter gets into the check valves, they can be dismantled,
then cleaned and replaced.
D. Plasma Cut and Start Gas. These gases enter the torch
through connections that house check valves within
the torch body. The valves acting in conjunction with
solenoid valves control the back and forth switching of
start and cut gases. See Figure 6-2 for further explanation of this system.
E. Shield Gas. Shield preflow, cut shield and postflow
enter the torch through one connection, pass through
the torch body, through the shield gas diffuser and then
out of the orifice in the shield cap that surrounds the
plasma jet.
F.
The seat, ball and spring must not be damaged when
handling. Also, Do NOT substitute any other spring or
ball. If they are dropped, lost, or damaged they must
be replaced with genuine ESAB replacement parts.
Changes, substitutions or damaged parts will affect
set pressures and cause poor starting and piercing.
Power and Pilot Arc Lines. Coolant IN to the torch is
through the power cable (-). Coolant OUT from the torch
is through the pilot arc (+) line.
6.6 TORCH MAINTENANCE
6.7 PT-24 CONSUMABLE REMOVAL,
INSPECTION AND INSTALLATION
Make sure power switch on the console is in the OFF
position and primary input power is disconnected.
Make sure power switch on the console is in the OFF
position and primary input power is disconnected.
A. Always check the three O-rings on the torch body before
each day's operation and replace if any damage or wear
is noted. Apply a thin coat of silicone grease to O-rings
before assembling to torch. The O-ring P/N 638797
inside the torch body that seals the nozzle is especially
critical. Because of its location, damage or wear is not
readily apparent. Replacing this ring on a daily basis is
recommended. Be careful not to scratch or damage the
inside surface of the torch. A toothpick works well for
removing the O-ring. The ring can be replaced without
removing the water baffle P/N 21725, if however the
baffle is to be removed, always use a 3/16 inch (5 mm)
hex wrench or nut driver.
B. Water leaks, moisture, or coolant dripping from the vent
hole in the sleeve indicates service line damage. If service
lines have to be replaced always use two wrenches to
avoid twisting the metal tubes.
NOTE
When changing consumables, if the nozzle retainer/diffuser seems especially stubborn and difficult to remove,
the console is probably still on. With the console on, the
pump will be running and coolant pressure behind the
retainer will prevent it from turning freely. Check the
console before making further attempts to remove the
nut. Notice also that a small amount of coolant will be lost
each time consumables are removed. This is normal and
eventually the coolant will have to be replaced. Check the
coolant before each operation.
A. Removal and Inspection
C. The torch sleeve P/N 21757 is threaded onto the torch
body. If the sleeve is too tight to be readily removed by
hand, use a large adjustable wrench on the flats located
on the body or lightly tighten these flats in a vise. With
the body secured in this manner, the use of two hands
on the sleeve may break the sleeve free, if not, use a
strap wrench. Always check service line connections
for leaks before replacing the sleeve.

1.
Unscrew the shield cup retainer. The cup may
come free with the retainer or stay on the torch.
If on the torch, pluck it free with your thumbnail.
Inspect the cup for damage around the orifice,
if the edge of the orifice is damaged, it must be
replaced. Straight cuts cannot be produced if this
orifice is distorted.
2.
The shield cup insulator is sandwiched between
the insulator shield retainer and the nozzle retainer/diffuser and may stay attached to nozzle
retainer because of the very close fit-up between
these members.

MAINTENANCE
B. Installation
Unscrew the nozzle retainer/diffuser. Inspect for
any damage especially where the retainer contacts
the nozzle. The innerface between the retainer
and the nozzle creates a metal to metal seal for the
coolant. Any damage to this sealing surface will
cause a leak and poor cutting will result. Replace
as necessary, do not attempt to repair. Check the
small gas passages for blockages. Clear blockages
with an air stream.
1.
Electrode - Apply a thin film of silicone grease to
the O-ring, just enough to produce a shiny surface,
thread the electrode in place and snug tight with
the tool provided. Do NOT overtighten.
2.
The nozzle is removed with the aid of the tool
provided. Place the slot around the groove in the
nozzle and pull the nozzle free.
Nozzle & Swirl Baffle - Place the swirl baffle into
the nozzle being careful not to get grease in the
small gas passages. Push this assembly into the
torch.
3.
Remove the swirl baffle from the nozzle. If the
baffle remains in the torch, it will come free with
the removal of the electrode. Check the small gas
passages for blockage. Clear blockages with an air
stream, if blockages cannot be cleared, replace the
baffle. Do NOT insert anything in these holes in
an effort to clear them. Distortion of these holes
will impair cutting performance.
Nozzle Retainer/Diffuser - To prevent leakage
between the nozzle and nozzle retainer, moisten
the corner of a clean, dry, lint-free cloth with a very
small smount of Krytox grease P/N 73585064.
Wipe the inner surface of the nozzle retainer that
comes in contact with the nozzle. Use care to apply a very thin film to ensure a proper seal. Thread
the nozzle retainer onto torch and hand tighten.
4.
Shield Cup Insulator - Push the shield cup insulator
on the nozzle retainer.
Unscrew the electrode with the aid of the tool
provided.

TROUBLESHOOTING
7.1 Troubleshooting
7.2 PROCESS TROUBLESHOOTING
A.
Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).
The PLC is located in the Precision Plasma Power
Source. It is a device capable of providing predefined
outputs depending on state of the inputs. The precise
conditions are programmed and permanently stored
in the PLC. The PLC is visible through the plexiglass
window on the left side panel of the power source.
The PLC will provide predefined outputs in response
to input signals from external devices. This exchange
of signals can be confirmed by observing the LEDs
on the top of the PLC while troubleshooting. These
indications are useful in isolating a system failure to
the most likely device.
The LEDs are divided into two groups; Input (0-15) and
Output (0-11). Input LEDs light when the corresponding signal is detected by the PLC. Output LEDs light
when the PLC issues a signal to an external device.
LEDs are highly reliable indicators. It is not likely that
one will "burn out". However, if the technician is not
confident that the LEDs are working, the presence of
a signal can be confirmed by using a meter and taking
a measurement on the appropriate pin. Refer to the
schematic and wiring diagrams.
The signal exchange between the PLC and external
devices are both time and condition dependent. If a
required signal is not received in the proper sequence,
the PLC will discontinue the process and generate a
fault signal to the CNC.
ELECTRIC SHOCK CAN KILL! Be sure that all primary
power to the machine has been externally disconnected. Open the line (wall) disconnect switch or circuit
breaker before attempting inspection or work inside
the power source.
Capacitors can store high voltages even when power
is disconnected or unit is deenergized. Ensure power
supply capacitors are grounded prior to performing
maintenance.

7.3 troubleshooting procedures
Check the problem against the symptoms in the following troubleshooting guide. The remedy may be quite
simple. If the cause cannot be quickly located, shut off
the input power, open up the appropriate component,
and perform a simple visual inspection of all the components and wiring. Check for secure terminal connections,
loose or burned wiring or components, bulged or leaking
capacitors, or any other sign of damage or discoloration.
Voltages in plasma cutting equipment are high
enough to cause serious injury or possibly death. Be
particularly careful around equipment when the covers are removed.
NOTE
The cause of control malfunctions can be found by
referring to the sequence of operations (Figure 7-1) and
electrical schematic diagram (Figure 7-2, 7-3, 7-5 and 7-8)
and checking the various components. A volt-ohmmeter
will be necessary for some of these checks.
Before checking voltages in the circuit, disconnect the
power from the high frequency generator to avoid damaging your voltmeter.
Table 7-2. Troubleshooting Guide
PROBLEM
Reduced consumable
(electrode) life
POSSIBLE CAUSE
ACTION
Skeleton cutting
Cutting skeletons to facilitate their removal from
the table can adversely affect electrode life by:
1. Causing the torch to run off the work.
2. Continuous Pilot Arc edge starts.
3.
Greatly increasing the frequency of starts
This is mainly a problem for O2 cutting
and can be alleviated by choosing a path
with a minimum number of starts.
4. Increased likelihood that the plate will
spring up against the nozzle causing a
double arc. This can be mitigated by
careful operator attention and by
increasing standoff and reducing cutting
speeds.
See crashing/diving in Item 2 below.
Height control problems
Increase piercing standoff.
Piercing standoff too low
Starting on edges with continuous pilot arc
75
Position torch more carefully or use a waster plate
to start on.
section 7
TROUBLESHOOTING
Table 7-2. Troubleshooting Guide
PROBLEM
Reduced nozzle life
POSSIBLE CAUSE
ACTION
Diving is usually caused by a change in arc voltage when an automatic height control is in use.
Diving can damage the nozzle. Usually the voltage change is the result of a change of direction
or speed to negotiate a corner or as a result of
plate falling away from the arc. These problems
can be dealt with by disabling the height control
in such situations and by extinguishing the arc
earlier when finishing the cut on falling plate.
Contacting work
diving
Diving may also be caused by a problem with
the height control or the signals fed to it.
The nozzle may sometimes be damaged if the
torch hits a flipped up part. This is difficult to
avoid entirely but careful part programming can
minimize the problem.
Work flipping
This refers to crashes or nozzle damage caused
by the front end of the torch catching on top
spatter after a pierce. Hold the torch at a high
standoff or start with a longer lead-in to avoid
this problem.
Catching on piece
Reduce speed to prevent rooster tailing during
cut. Reduce speed around corners if rooster tailing occurs only coming out of corners.
Excessive speed
Same as for electrode above.
Process factors
Increases delay time.
Inadequate initial delay.
Pierce not complete before starting
Poor cut quality
Gas selection
O2 carbon steel - best cut quality minimal dross.
N2/Air -Stainless steel best cut quality when used
with CH4 or H-35 alternate gas.
N2/Aluminum - best cut quality when using CH4
alternate gas.
Verify and correct torch alignment (vertical).
Torch alignment to work
Verify correct current. Refer to perimeter tables.
Incorrect current
Cutting over slats will cause some bottom dross.
If the cut runs along the slat, it can produce
other cut quality problems. The only solution is
to avoid running along the slats.
