Plasma Cutting

• METAL IS CUT BY SENDING AN ELECTRICAL CURRENT THROUGH FORCED GASES AT VERY HIGH SPEEDS AND HIGH TEMPERATURES.
• FIRST INTRODUCED IN THE LATE 50'S
• HI DEFINITION PLASMA INTRODUCED IN THE EARLY 90'S
• DIFFERENCE IN HOW THE PROCESS IS PERFORMED: PLASMA SYSTEMS WERE VERY BASIC AND HARDWIRED. NEWER HI-DEF PLASMA SYSTEMS
  ARE MORE PC BASED ON ALLOWS MORE CONTROL OVER TEMPERATURES, GAS FLOW, ETC…
• PLASMA TEMPERATURES CAN REACH 40,000 DEGREES FH.


ADVANTAGES:

• CAN CUT THICKER PLATE THAN LASERS
  (UP TO 6" EDGE START AND 3" THICK PRODUCTION PIERCING)
• BETTER EDGE QUALITY THAN FLAME CUTTING
• MORE ACCURATE PARTS USING CNC CONTROLS

DISADVANTAGES:
• MODERATE EDGE QUALITY
• CAN HAVE KERF ON THICKER MATERIALS
