Plasma Cutting 101

Plasma cutting, or plasma arc cutting, is a fabrication process that uses superheated, ionized gas to cut metal into custom shapes and designs. The plasma torch utilizes a copper nozzle to constrict and focus the stream of plasma. The nozzle contains an electrode that creates an arc between the electrode and the material to be cut. The compressed gas stream, combined with the electrical charge running through it, creates an intense, highly accurate stream capable of quickly and easily creating precision cuts in most metals.

CNC Plasma Cutting

Manual plasma cutting is often employed for small jobs that do not require a great deal of precision. In contrast, CNC, or Computer Numerical Control, plasma cutting services is employed to cut with the great accuracy necessary for many manufacturing and critical applications. CNC plasma cutting enables the operator to enter numerical codes into the computer system to direct the machine's motion, controlling the path of the plasma torch, and allowing for repeated precision cuts.

Advantages

CNC plasma cutting offers several advantages over other cutting processes. The state-of-the-art CNC plasma cutting machines we utilize at Accurate Metals provide us with a wide cutting area and the ability to cut nearly any sheet metal. CNC plasma cutting is a highly efficient and fast process with cutting speeds of up to 10 m. per minute or higher. The combination of CNC programming and fine plasma cutting enables the precision cutting of metal components to meet exacting specifications for critical applications.
