Plasma Cutters

Plasma Cutters are tools designed to cut through electrically conductive metals with electrically heated and ionized gas. Plasma cutters can be handheld or automated through a CNC machine (Computer Numerically Controlled) for more controlled and precise cutting.

What is plasma?

Plasma is 4th state of matter containing about equal numbers of positive ions and electrons and exhibiting some properties of gas is a very good conductor of electricity. Plasma can also be described and electrically heated gas stream.

How do plasma cutters work?

Plasma Cutters generate and send an electric arc through a gas (e.g.: air, nitrogen, argon, oxygen) and elevate the gas temperature and a passing speed creating the 4th state of matter, plasma. The high-speed and superheated, electrically ionized plasma, passing via a copper nozzle cuts through electrically conductive materials.

What type of metals does plasm cut through?

Plasma cutting is an effective way of cutting both thin and thick materials even up to 6 in thick. Plasma Cutters are ideal for cutting sheet metal in curved and angled shapes. Plasma Cutters are mostly used in automotive repair, construction, salvage and scraping applications. Typical materials cut with plasma cutters include:

  • Aluminium

  • Brass

  • Copper

  • Stainless Steel
