  • What is high-precision plasma cutting, exactly?

    We all know the old sales joke: You can have it good, fast, or cheap, so pick two. High-precision plasma We all know the old sales joke: You can have it good, fast, or cheap, so pick two. High-precision plasma cutting used to be that way, too, only the options were cut speed, quality, and […]

  • A guide to mechanized plasma cutting

    For many self-employed fabricators, the beginning of their entrepreneurial journey began with a welding power source. Welding skills travel, and an enterprising person can put them to work in pursuit of starting a business. That trend doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in the “welders, […]

  • The High-Definition Revolution in Plasma Cutting

    HPR800 thick metal cut

    Article featured in FabShop Magazine and written by Jim Colt of Hyperthem High-definition plasma cutting has been available for almost 20 years. Its original development relied on new technology that could improve conventional plasma cut quality in terms of edge squareness (especially on thinner materials) and cut-part accuracy, while maintaining respectable consumable life and operating […]

  • Plasma Torch Parts

    Plasma cutting is a process in which electrically conductive gas is harnessed and controlled. A torch holds consumable parts, which constrict and control the ionized gas stream or plasma arc for cutting most common metals that conduct electricity. The following is a list of the different plasma torch parts and their function:

  • Open Air vs. Underwater Plasma Cutting

    At CMTS this past October, we showcased out 3000 Series CNC Plasma with a water table. Questions we received throughout the show were: Why do you have a water table? Why are you not cutting under the water? And why do some plasma systems have open-air tables with a fume extractor? The question of whether to use open air vs. underwater plasma cutting depends on a number of factors.  Are you concerned about smoke and noise in your factory when cutting?  Do you require True Hole Cutting or fine cuts?  What is your target price point? In addition, one would need to consider the different tradeoffs in cut depth and target quality. It is important to note that we are comparing open air vs. underwater plasma cutting, and not downdraft tables vs. water tables. It is possible to use open air cutting with a water table, so long as the water level is below the piece being cut.

  • Plasma Gases and Their Uses

    How to Choose the Best Gas for Your Plasma Torch

    There are five main types of plasma gases used in CNC plasma cutting systems: compressed air, N2 (nitrogen), O2 (oxygen), H35 (argon-hydrogen), and F5 (hydrogen-nitrogen). Choosing which plasma gas is right for your operation depends on a number of factors including the material being cut, cut quality, material thickness, consumable life-span, and cost of production.
