What Is Plasma Cutting?

Plasma cutters work by sending an electric arc through a constricted opening to form plasma – a fourth state of matter that is distinct from solid, liquid and gas. Plasma is a superheated matter, and harnessing it with a plasma cutter provides an efficient and cost-effective technology to cut through metal.

What Are The Advantages Of Plasma Cutting?

Plasma cutting provides fast, accurate, smooth, intricate and detailed cuts. The cut edges 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.
  • The variety of metals plasma cutting can handle includes carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper alloys and more.
  • Plasma cutting is a more cost-efficient process than some other cutting options.
  • Plasma can cut through any conductive metal, regardless of its surface.

What Are The Disadvantages Of Plasma Cutting?

Plasma cutting requires considerable precautions and produces more fumes than many other cutting methods. The process is extremely loud and requires hearing protection. In order to avoid burns, operators must exercise extreme care and wear protective clothing to protect them from sparks or particles of superheated metal. Safety is very important to us, and our workers are well-trained professionals.
