Plasma Cutting

There are virtually no limits to what Plasma can cut, which is why companies of all kinds and sizes are realizing greater efficiency and productivity by implementing plasma profile cutting in their operations.

Plasma cutting technology is one of the fastest growing major machine tool processes in the world due to its versatility and ease of operation.

Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut steel and other metals of different thickness using a plasma torch. In this process, an inert gas (in some units, compressed air) is blown at high speed out of a nozzle; at the same time an electrical arc is formed through that gas from the nozzle to the surface being cut, turning some of that gas to plasma. The plasma is sufficiently hot to melt the metal being cut into intricate and complex shapes directly from CAD data.
