A: No additional software or hardware is required. If you have what you need to plasma cut you have what you need to scribe. Most plasma table manufacturers already have their software ready to work with this or other optional features.
Q: Will it work with a magnetic torch breakaway?
A: It will work with magnetic breakaways unless the magnets are weak. The side loading of the torch during scribing operations is minimal and very similar to dragging your plasma nozzle across the material.
Q: Will this work with a Powermax 45?
A: Yes, we have a scriber for both the original 45 and also the 45XP.
Q: Will this work on my older Hypertherm 600, 1250, etc.?
A: If you have the Duramax torch upgrade yes it will work. If you are unsure what torch you have look at the part # on your electrodes. If your electrode part # is 220842 then it will work.
Q: Will this work with my automatic digital torch height control?
A: Automatic digital torch height controls require arc voltage to function. Since there is no arc when scribing THC is not used, should be turned off, and you will set a working height in your control software.
Q: What is the best speed to use when scribing?
A: 100ipm works well on any material but you can go as slow or as fast as you like if its getting the job done.
Q: Do you have suggested software settings when using the EasyScriber?
A:For suggested SheetCam, PlasmaCam, and Tracker CNC settings Click Here. Most other systems settings will be similar to the SheetCam settings.
Q: How can I make my scribes more defined?
A: The more you compress the tip during scribing, the more down force is applied. Setting a lower working height will accomplish this but do not compress the tip much more than 2/3 of its total compression stroke. Spring pressure can also be increased by turning in the setscrew at the top of the EasyScriber body. Techniques like hatch line fills, double lines, etc are other popular ways to increase definition.
