Q ) When SteelTailor portable CNC cutting machines is in oxygas cutting process when lose fire (heating) press Stop for machine to stop then press  Backward (or  Forward) in order to continue cutting then when press  Start for cutting, the machine start immediately without repeating the heating and oxygene discharge process  in order to piercing and the height sensing control donot work (we have to up/down torch by manual ).

(A) once the Flame has been cut or the pause key (RED key) has been pressed you have to press either CUTOXY or PIERCE keys to start cutting again.

Q)     When cut a program with many figures then when the cutting process starts ,but the portable CNC cutting machine has to run the test mode.
A). In the AUTO mode you can set the TEST run, once the test run is selected the portable CNC cutter will make the X and Y axis movements according to the shape. The Flame or Plasma cutting will not be started.
In AUTO mode press “X” key in the keypad to activate or deactivate the TEST run function.

Q:The price of SteelTailor THC is more than 1000 dollors,and other supplier’s only 3-400 dollors,Why so much different?

A:SteelTailor  Arc voltage sensing THC is specially designed for SteelTailor CNC cutting machines.

After so many years of rigorous testing and constantly updated matches by SteelTailor,The quality is very high.The function is multiple .On this basis we have developed arc voltage and capacity THC .It is an THC both for Flame and Plasma automatic sensing.The THC of SteelTailor is is competitive price and more better than THC valued 3-400dollors.

Q)  The CNC controller is showing STOP warning in the controller AUTO mode.
