Plasma Cutting

Plasma Cutting uses an inert gas that is blown at a high speed out of a nozzle; while an electric arc is formed through the gas from the nozzle; producing plasma. Plasma can be used to cut steel and a variety of other metals.

Plasma Cutting Specifications

We offer multiple kinds of plasma cutters and will help provide the best plasma cutter for your project. Plasma Cutter selection is based upon your available power source, the type of metal, and the thickness of the metal. Give us a call and we will talk with you in factoring in all that you need for your Plasma Cutting.

More Plasma Cutting Information

Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut steel and other metals of different thicknesses (or sometimes other materials) using a plasma torch. In this process, an inert gas (in some units, compressed air) is blown at high speed out of a nozzle; at the same time an electrical arc is formed through that gas from the nozzle to the surface being cut, turning some of that gas to plasma. The plasma is sufficiently hot enough to melt the metal being cut and moves sufficiently fast to blow molten metal away from the cut.

Plasma Cutting Process

The HF Contact type uses a high-frequency, high-voltage spark to ionize the air through the torch head and initiate an arc. These require the torch to be in contact with the job material when starting, and so are not suitable for applications involving computer numerical controlled (CNC) cutting.

The Pilot Arc type uses a two cycle approach to producing plasma, avoiding the need for initial contact. First, a high-voltage, low current circuit is used to initialize a very small high-intensity spark within the torch body, thereby generating a small pocket of plasma gas. This is referred to as the pilot arc.?
