  • Not all plasma consumables are created equally

    plasma consumables

     

    Hypertherm posted an educational blog called “consumable bargains? Not so much” in which they dive into the differences between quality hypertherm consumables and bargain consumables, we have summarized the blog below but you can read the full article here: https://www.hypertherm.com/en-US/learn/spark-the-blog/consumable-bargains-not-so-much/

    With today’s technology, plasma systems can produce extremely accurate parts with little or no post production processes. Yet, a plasma system is only as good as its consumables, and the purchase of knock-off consumables can make your systems performance suffer. People often don’t think about the engineering and precision that comes into the manufacturing of plasma consumables. They are more than just a piece of copper machined in a certain shape, as hypertherm consumables contain a lot of hidden technologies and are machined to extremely high tolerances to deliver the cut quality and life expectancy people have come to expect.

  • Increasing Productivity with Plasma Cutting

    There are many options when cutting metal for parts. The original solution of using a saw is nice but rather noisy, messy, costly, in terms of consumables, and therefore outdated.

    A stalwart of the small shop or home hobbyist is the oxy-fuel rig. Although still used when cutting steel over two inches thick, this method is not practical for a modern shop.

    Plasma, laser and waterjet solutions are the most modern metal-cutting methods. These methods were all developed in the 1960s and have their fair share of proponents and detract- ors. Laser and waterjet cutting has always been associated with mechanical CNC cutting. Plasma has been comfortable with both handheld and mechanical cutting solutions.
