Required countermeasures when using FineCut cartridges with certain THCs

When using mechanized FineCut cartridges (part no. 428926) on an XY table equipped with a torch height control you may experience premature cartridge failure when using a THC with stall force or a fault code when using a THC with ohmic sensing. On tables using stall force, we recommend turning down the force setting when cutting thin plate. On tables using ohmic sensing, we recommend the use of a 45-amp mechanized cartridge (part no. 428925) instead of a FineCut cartridge. Hypertherm is working on a revised FineCut cartridge design to address this issue but until its release in the coming months, this is the recommended solution.
