How Does Plasma Cutting Work?

Imagine an electric arc and gas moving 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 that forms ionized gas. When we harness it with a plasma cutter, it easily cuts through metal.

Why Choose Plasma Cutting Over Other Methods?

Plasma cutting provides accurate and smooth cuts, and it does it quickly. Because the cut edges often require no additional finishing work, this method of cutting can save time and money, making it the best option for many jobs. Other advantages of plasma cutting include:

  • The types of metals plasma cutting can cut through include carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper alloys and others.
  • We can cut through sheets of metal up to 1.5 inches thick.
  • Plasma cutting is a more cost-efficient process than many other options.
  • Plasma cutters work on any conductive metal.

Are There Any Disadvantages To Plasma Cutting?

Plasma cutting does require precautions to be safely done, but our workers are well-trained professionals and SMF takes safety very seriously. Because the process is extremely loud, our workers wear hearing protection. In order to avoid burns, our operators exercise extreme care and wear protective clothing.
