Here's the first parts cut with my new Longevity 60i, 3/16" steel at 60 ipm. More to come in a day or two. After troubleshooting to adapt my table to the high frequency start I'm now happy with the performance of the machine. Cuts really clean and way faster that my old plasma.

Looks great, I like my force cut too. I had a Lincoln ProCut and was worried that I had been spoiled with a big name machine, and that this machine would not cut it. I'm glad I switched. I need to put my Fred Flintsone table back together so I can show the low bucks pattern tracer at work;)

i'm building a tube front bumper for a 96 ranger. those parts are the frame extension that goes to the main tube. i'll have more pics tonight hopefully. i'm also gonna see how mad the machine gets at me when i throw some 1 inch on the table. i'm gonna cut a couple press plates.:twisted:

One inch is major work I'll be watching for the update. Make sure that your power supply lines are short and up to the task since any voltage drop on the garage wiring will force the machine to use additional current (making extra heat) to get the power level you want. I run 6 gauge mains for 50 Amps loads. This is supposed to support 65 Amps with copper, but with a 50 foot length of wire I will get some drop(not that you will lose much, but why lose any). For a 70 Amp load, I'm not wired properly. Good luck. I'm going to test cut some 5/8 this weekend as all I have cut so far is 1/8 inch.

All my wires are 6 guage. I set the program at 7 ipm and it was cutting great then I got to the first radius and it started blowing back, slowed the speed down to 5 ipm and it started blowing though again, got to another turn and had to lower speed again to 2, then the rest of the part I sped up to 7 ipm on straight aways and slowed to 2 ipm on the curves. I'm gonna run the program again to cut through the corners that didn't cut through then ill see how straight the cut was. Ran out of time today.

I have not had time to push my plasma cutter yet, but I am amazed at what you can do with your 60I. I can't wait to get a CNC table working as my hand is not so steady.

Great videos and the power of the 60PI is clearly demonstrated. Very clean cuts for the most part considering the 1" material.
Thanks for sharing.
