We have a member that has reached out to the committee, and with supervision we’re going to experiment with cutting Titanium on our plasma.
This will involve cleaning the drawer of the unit first to mitigate fire risk, setting the system up for Nitrogen versus Air as a gas, and determining cut speed for the titanium sheets used.
Titanium requires committee approval before cutting, and this is the first time on this machine. If you’re considering ever using titanium it would be a good learning experience for all. Tonight we’re just doing test cuts and figuring out settings.
I’m going to get there around 7 to look at what’s on hand/cleaning etc, however we likely will need to make a hardware store run for a hose fitting for the nitrogen setup so might not cut until around 8 or so if we do.
For those interested I’ll go over caveats to cutting titanium with plasma, our shop precautions for the purpose, etc.
