Plasma cutting allows for highly accurate shapes to be produced, including bevelled edges.
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.
The plasma melts the metal being cut, also blowing molten metal away from the cut.
HF type plasma cutting machines uses a high-frequency, high-voltage spark to ionize the air through the torch head and initiate an arc. HF type plasma machines are ideal for applications involving computer numerical controlled (CNC) cutting.
Total Steel's powerful plasma cutting machines allow for material up to 50 mm, with a maximum cutting envelope 3.4 metre wide.
