This is the photo of my 6 pieces of trellis.
A question for you guys. I am using a Hypertherm powermax 45 with powermax 30 consumables and I cut this with a set of new electrodes and nozzles. I
I cut at 108 ipm and the run time was 9 minutes x 6 trellis. 1.6mm
If my math is correct thats over 5000 inches.
The nozzle still looks good but the electrodes has some quite a bit of wear, does anybody know how many inches you are supposed to get out of these?
I suppose I am asking if this is good bad or average amount of cutting from the consumables?

did you factor in your time to travel from pierce to pierce and the length of time to sense? they way you figured that is probably not the most accurate means. i think the number of pierces is more important then cut inches. id say they are still good

Hi North Shore Fab, the software only seems to countdown when its actually cutting which probably includes the .5 second sensing as well, it doesn't countdown as its traversing between cut.
Thank you for your answer kind Sir. :-)

Cut this license plate bracket (customer supplied DXF) from 1/8" with my 1250 and "Fine Cut" consumables. I thought it turned out pretty well. The letters are about 3/4" tall... just wide enough to hide most of the pierces. The bolt hole all the way to the right is .200" diameter..

I haven't posted anything in here for a long while.

This one I just finished up on the installation this morning. I built a riser system for the washer at my powder coater. The conveyor guys will be there in a couple weeks to raise the entire conveyor system. The frames were all welded tube with a few tabs and brackets cut on the TM. The real help of the torchmate was on the stainless panels that made up the ceiling. I shear the majority of the panels to size and then burned out all the screw holes prior to brake forming. We bent them all up and then laid them in the frame which are upside down in the first picture. The rest are the whole system in place. With the holes all pre cut and the frames upside down, I was able to predrill 90% of the holes which made the installation a little less of a pain in the ass.

Thanks! Sure was.

Centered it on the square, moved to start point, cut the "Loud K" then slid the tube up, recentered on the square and moved to new start point, then cut the "K Livin' []"

new shop/home. That picture was taken from about the halfway point looking towards the back of the building. I only technically only have 1600 ft but it's not a problem if I spill out into the main area from time to time if I need to some larger layouts like this one.

holy snikeys!!!! thats fawesome. there is a shear and brake there as well? you made out like a bandit there, really looks like you need a bigger table now to help with that spill over. we are in a bidding war on some property and looks like we should come to an agreement here in the next day or so, so i have got to down size

That turned out great! I think that a lot of people don't think about cutting designs straight into tubing and pipe.

I agree. This is the reason I extended my gantry arm off the table.
I was cutting circles in the flanges of some beams to make tees that were round.
I have also used my table to strip a leg of an angle down. This was before I extended the gantry arm, so I had to pull all the slats out and shim the angle up.

Thanks! I'll work on a quick write-up and post it as a new topic so we don't clutter up this page.

Here's a custom JK vent plate we did after the customer coated it. Made it out of 1/8" aluminum so it would never corrode even if the coating came off.
