  • Improving plasma cut quality

    Plasma arc cutting (PAC), or plasma cutting, is a process by which a vortex of pressurized gas is ionized to heat and melt electrically conductive materials. The PAC system’s parts are configured to constrict and focus the vortex of ionized gas on an electrically conductive material so that the material can be cut with precision […]

  • An edge up on plasma cut quality

    There’s something about a high-precision plasma-cut edge. It’s shiny, almost glassy, and the cut geometry keeps getting more precise—with minimal edge rounding and washout, perfectly square or close to it. Mechanized precision plasma cutting has come a long way. Although approaches vary depending on the system, these technologies make a clean plasma-cut edge using similar […]

  • Consuming plasma consumables too quickly?

    All plasma systems—whether it’s a portable, 30-amp unit or a high-precision, automated system that can cut material up to 6 inches thick at 100 percent duty cycle—use consumables that have an expected life. In high-use environments, the cost of consumables can become considerable over time. Familiarizing yourself with what causes premature consumable wear and how […]

  • Mechanized plasma cutting for HVAC applications

    Today many HVAC shops use plasma cutters—both hand-held torches and CNC mechanized systems—to cut material for fabrication. These fabricators find that for their applications, plasma is a fast, clean, economical way for them to cut light-gauge metal. This overview of mechanized plasma technology for HVAC includes a brief review of the industry, a review of […]

  • How To Avoid The Top 10 problems in plasma cutting

    The old adage “measure twice, cut once” is as important for plasma arc cutting operators as it is for carpenters. The phrase could be reworded to “inspect twice, cut once” for the plasma industry. Careful preparation, setup, and maintenance can alleviate many costly problems which operators encounter. Strategy The following is a list of remedies […]
