Is Plasma Cutting The Same Thing As Plasma Arc Cutting?

Plasma cutting – the same thing as plasma arc cutting – works by sending an electric arc through a constricted opening to form plasma. In the hands of an experienced operator, this super-heated plasma provides an efficient and cost-effective technology capable of making precise cuts through most metals.

Why Choose Plasma Cutting Over Other Options?

There are other cutting options, besides plasma cutting, such as laser cutting and saw cutting, that are right for some jobs. Plasma cutting offers certain advantages. Plasma provides accurate, fast, detailed cuts. The cut edges may require no additional finishing work. This saves time and money, making it the best option for many jobs. Other advantages to plasma cutting include:

  • Plasma cutting can handle thicker metal than laser cutters can. Plasma can cut through sheets of metal up to 1.5 inches thick.
  • Aluminum, carbon steel, stainless steel, copper alloys and other metals are suitable for plasma cutters.
  • Plasma cutting is more cost-efficient than most other cutting options and can slice through any conductive metal.

Does Plasma Cutting Have Any Disadvantages?

Plasma cutting is not as precise as laser cutting, and it produces more fumes than many other cutting methods. It also requires more stringent safety precautions than most other methods.
