Plasma cutting is a process that cuts through electrically conductive materials by means of an accelerated jet of hot plasma. Typical materials cut with a plasma torch include steel, Stainless steel, aluminum, brass and copper, although other conductive metals may be cut as well. Plasma cutting is often used in fabrication shops, automotive repair and restoration, industrial construction, and salvage and scrapping operations. Due to the high speed and precision cuts combined with low cost, plasma cutting sees widespread use from large-scale industrial CNC applications down to small hobbyist shops.

The basic plasma cutting process involves creating an electrical channel of superheated, electrically ionized gas i.e. plasma from the plasma cutter itself, through the work piece to be cut, thus forming a completed electric circuit back to the plasma cutter via a grounding clamp. This is accomplished by a compressed gas (oxygen, air, inert and others depending on material being cut) which is blown through a focused nozzle at high speed toward the work piece. An electrical arc is then formed within the gas, between an electrode near or integrated into the gas nozzle and the work piece itself. The electrical arc ionizes some of the gas, thereby creating an electrically conductive channel of plasma. As electricity from the cutter torch travels down this plasma it delivers sufficient heat to melt through the work piece. At the same time, much of the high velocity plasma and compressed gas blow the hot molten metal away, thereby separating i.e. cutting through the work piece. Plasma cutting is an effective way of cutting thin and thick materials alike. Our stronger computer-controlled CNC Plasma Cutter can cut steel up to 60 mm thick. Since plasma cutters produce a very hot and very localized "cone" to cut with, they are extremely useful for cutting sheet metal in curved or angled shapes.

Advantages

Plasma cutting offers low cost since no custom tooling is needed. The process is especially cost effective for thick metal sheets. This method of cutting is usually for thicker sheets than laser. Plasma cutting is generally used to cut 2D shapes not requiring high precision or fine detail.

Applications

Example applications include: Metal Brackets, Motorcycle Parts, Auto Parts, parts for heavy machinery, aircraft components, signs, panels, material handling equipment, etc.

Materials

Plasma cutting is mostly commonly applied to stainless steel, carbon steel and spring steel.

Cost Reduction

Cost reduction options include reducing total cut length and number of holes.
