Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut steel and other metals of different thicknesses using a plasma torch. In this process, an inert gas 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.
Plasma is an effective means of cutting thin metal. We can cut steel from 1mm to 12mm thick and 3 meters x 1.5 meters wide. Since plasma cutters produce a very hot and very localized "cone" to cut with, they are extremely useful for cutting sheet metal in curved or angled shapes.
Plasma cutting has many cutting capabilities from mild steel to industry standard Chequer plate (Durbar) ideal for cutting shapes to fit fire escape stairs etc. Our plasma cutting machine is an Auto-Cut 100 plasma system with the XT-301 torch delivers conventional production capacity of 12mm at 100% duty up to 100 amps. Material from 1mm up to 12mm may be cut when starting from the edge of the plate. The Auto-cut plasma 100 system uses Multi Gas 100% duty cycle, liquid cooled XT-301 180 degree torch with a 50mm diameter fibreglass mounting tube. This system also includes the integrated GCM-1000 gas control for easy parameter set up and precise delivery of gases it allows us to work to close tolerances. Working with your drawings or CAD files we can offer a complete solution to your profiling needs.
