Plasma cutting service FAQ’s

Here are some commonly FAQ’s that will help you know exactly how can we help you when asking for a plasma cutting service.

What is plasma in plasma cutting?

Plasma cutting is a process that cuts through electrically conductive material through an accelerated jet of hot plasma. Typical materials cut with a plasma torch include steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and copper, although other conductive metals may be cut as well.

Does plasma cutting work on hardened steel?

Plasma cut edges can be quite hard even in low carbon steel. If the material tolerates the heat (600 to 1000F°) and is allowed to cool in the air, it can be done. This will draw the edge temper to machinability. Higher carbon steels and pre-heat treated alloys may require some research though.

How accurate is plasma cutting?

Plasma cutting will produce outstanding results, 95% of the time to be precise, just mind that limitation is a possibility but as long as you are not trying to cut watch parts with it, you will be fine.

Does plasma cutters cut aluminum?

Yes, it does, since it does not rely on oxidation to work, plasma cutting goes through stainless, mild steel, aluminum, and any other conductive material.

How thin can plasma cutter cut?

From 1.5in (hand-held torches) to 6in (computer-controlled torches).
