The plasma cutting process (also known as plasma arc cutting) is a metal cutting method that utilizes high temperatures to cut through materials. Using a jet of ionized gas, material is melted and expelled from a cut, creating precision and smooth edges (much like laser cutting).
Plasma cutting is similar to laser cutting in that its function is the same. However, there are some cut jobs for which laser cutting cannot rise to the challenge. As such, plasma cutting has unique advantages over other metal cutting processes. Some of these advantages include:
SMF Inc. strives to offer our clients the whole “metal-fabrication experience.” Rather than taking your project from one shop to the next until completion, we manage the design, construction and assembly of your entire project in-house.
