tilt overtravel aks

Tilt overtravel – where a plasma cutting machine’s bevel head goes beyond 45.7 degrees – is a fairly common issue that, fortunately, is easy to correct.

Tilt overtravel rarely occurs when a machine is running a program. Usually, it happens during a new installation or between uses.
