The main advantage of this system lies in its reduced risk of deformation due to the heat compaction of the cutting area.
This modern technology is usable for cutting any conductive metallic material, and more especially in structural steel, stainless and non-ferrous metals. It allows cut thicknesses of 0.5 to 160 millimeters, with plasma units of up to 1000 amps. Plasma cutting also enables machining of structural steel with the possibility of beveling up to 30 millimeters.
There is also a low thermal impact on the material thanks to the high energy concentration of the arc-plasma. The beginning of the cut is practically instantaneous and produces minimal deformation of the part. This process allows machining at high cutting speeds and produces less downtime (no preheating is required for drilling). High quality cuts and a very good finish are achieved.
