A computer plasma cutter can cut metals in various thicknesses. It does this by means of a plasma gun, also named plasma torch. It involves an electric arc that creates a stream of plasma, by super heating an inert gas under high pressure, and as it rushes out of the nozzle, it forms a strong hot cutter as it were, that can pierce through the metal by the expedient of melting it. Apart from this, the high-speed plasma scatters the molten metal, while it cuts.A computer plasma cutter is extremely effective on both thin as well as thick cross-sections of metals. If you are using a hand held cutter, you can cut a slab of metal up to 2” thick, while a computer controlled plasma cutter can cut through a 6” slab of metal with the greatest ease.
CNC Plasma Cutters
CNC Plasma Cutters, being computer-controlled, are extremely efficient as well as automatic. They cut the following metals effortlessly:
- Titanium plate
- Stainless steel
- Carbon fiber
- Aluminum sheet
- Iron sheet
- Galvanized sheet, and just about any material that you can think of.
A computer plasma cutter is equipped with a robotic cutting table. It is actually a very pretty piece of equipment, offering the following useful features:
- Precise motion in any direction, due to the variable speeds and precise gears involved
- accurate cutting at variable speeds by means of rigid and lightweight parts
- Flexible height adjustments, ensuring sufficient clearance for the hot tip, that needs no human intervention
The computerized plasma cutter is a versatile and efficient device that can cut through any metal sheet or block with a thickness of up to 6 inches.
Computer plasma cutters are programmed by software, to create maximum yields from sheets of material. The CNC technology outdates manual cutting methods, to cut materials in an accurate as well as recurring process that never differs or commits a mistake, and needs no a coffee break.
