Plasma cutting

Plasma technology

Plasma cutting is used mainly for cutting high-alloyed steel and aluminum, as well as for thin plates of low-alloyed steel (mild steel).

plasma cutting

What is plasma?

Plasma cutting is a melting procedure, where the to-be-cut metal is melted by the plasma jet. A cutting gas jet is being heated up until it reaches the fourth state of matter, i.e. highly energetic plasma gas, and is being electrically charged (ionized) by the plasma power source. In order to focus the resulting plasma jet, which reaches up to 30.000 degrees Celsius, on the material, it is constricted by a fluidizing gas. Where the plasma jet touches the to-be-cut object, it transmits its energy and punctually melts the material. A secondary gas jet subsequently blows the melted material out of the kerf.

Energy consumption of plasma cutting is higher than oxy-fuel cutting, because the material needs to be melted along the entire kerf. Typical cutting gases include oxygen, nitrogen or argon/hydrogen mixes.
