Plasma cutting process can be used on any material that will conduct electricity making it a very versatile process.
By the plasma cutting, all electrically conductive materials such as non-, low- and high-alloyed steels, nickel, copper, brass, bronze, aluminium and their alloys can be cut. Compared with the autogenous flame cutting, the plasma cutting is a melting process. Plasma arc cutting produces fast, high-quality cuts that often requires no further finishing.
Under certain circumstances plasma cutting can achieve a comparable quality level to laser cutting, but at considerably lower production cost.
The plasma cutting process is used for manual, mechanised or automated cutting process.
