Plasma Pierce Points

Post by pdubbleyuh » Mon Jan 14, 2019 7:47 pm

I was wondering..Is it possible to have the plasma torch pierce holes in the center of a circle without having a lead in/lead out cycle? The idea would be similar to a peck cycle on a drill. Using a scribe to plot hole centers is ideal but my machine isn't that advanced yet.

Thanks!

Use the drilling operation. Most plasma posts are configured to simply pierce the center when you use a plasma tool in the drilling operation.
