Plasma and gas cutting are two technological processes that share a common operating principle but differ in energy source and capacity.
Plasma cuts carbon steel and stainless steel with thicknesses from 1 to 40 mm.
Cutting is done according to the quality standard EN ISO 9013.
The advantage of plasma cutting over gas cutting is the ability to cut different metals and their alloys since the plasma temperature is 5000 – 30 000 ° С. In addition, plasma cutting is faster than gas cutting and does not require preheating, no deformation, and the cut edge remains smooth. The advantage of plasma cutting over laser cutting is the cutting speed and price. They have a common working principle where the metal is heated over the cut and then blown out. The difference between plasma cutting and gas cutting in the use of gas energy in plasma mode, but in gas cutting, the fuel source is fuel and oxidizer.
Plasma cutting is one of the most common metal cutting technologies. The advantage of the technology is, above all, the high cutting speed, especially when cutting parts without holes. Plasma cutting machine can also mark details.
To obtain quality openings, one should consider an opening thickness of 1.5x the thickness of the material. For apertures smaller than these conditions, the quality of the lower half of the aperture must be taken into account.
Plasma cutting is not done with a cutter but with a narrowly oriented plasma torch. Plasma for use in the torch uses active gases (air, oxygen) and passive gases (water vapor, nitrogen, argon, hydrogen). Active gases are used for cutting ferrous metals and inactive for non-ferrous metals and alloys.
Plasma cutting is cheaper than laser and plasma cutting is often faster. Plasma cutting also has several advantages over water abrasive cutting – speed, cost and environmental friendliness. Plasma cutting is considered safer because it does not require the use of explosive oxygen cylinders.
