How Is Plasma Cutting Different From Laser Cutting?

Plasma cutting is also known as plasma arc cutting. It works by sending an electric arc through a constricted opening to form plasma. It’s a fast, efficient and cost-effective technology that makes precise cuts through metal. It can handle thicker metals than a laser cutter.

Why Choose Plasma Cutting?

Plasma cutting provides fast, accurate, smooth, intricate and detailed cuts that often require no additional finishing work, saving you time and money. It’s the best option for many jobs. Other advantages include:

  • Plasma cutting can handle sheets of metal up to 1.5 inches thick. This is thicker than lasers can reliably handle.
  • Aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, copper alloys and lend themselves well to plasma cutting.
  • Compared to other cutting options, plasma cutting is more cost-effective.
  • Plasma cutters can slice through any conductive metal.

Does Plasma Cutting Have A Downside?

Plasma cutting is not quite as precise as laser cutting, and it produces more fumes than many other cutting methods.
