How Does Plasma Cut Through Metal?

Plasma cutters work by sending an electric arc and gas through a constricted opening to form plasma. Plasma, a fourth state of matter that is distinct from solid, liquid and gas, is a superheated matter. Harnessing it with a plasma cutter makes for a fast and efficient way to cut through metal.

Why Choose Plasma Cutting?

If you need smooth, detailed and accurate cuts, a plasma cutter serves as a great choice. Because the edges of metal cut with a plasma cutter very often require no additional finishing work, it’s a method that can save you time and money. Some advantages of plasma cutting include:

  • The variety of metals plasma cutting can handle includes carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper alloys and more.
  • A plasma cutter can handle sheets of metal up to 1.5 inches thick.
  • Plasma cutting makes for a more cost-efficient process compared to many other options.
  • Plasma cutters work on any conductive metal.
