CNC Plasma Cutter - A Fast, Versatile and Precise Metal Cutting Machine
Plasma cutters have been around as effective metal cutting equipments since years. It was in 1960 when actually for the first time use of plasma as method of metal cutting was discovered out of a plasma welding process. However it was not until 1980s that this process gained popularity and started being used as a productive way to cut sheet metal and plates in industries and workshops.
Plasma Cutting Process
Plasma cutting as process of metal cutting is widely used to cut metals of different thicknesses. In the process a high velocity inert gas is blown out of a nozzle of a plasma torch on the metal being cut. Simultaneously, an electrical arc is also generated from the nozzle through that gas thus converting some part of the gas to plasma. The plasma generated in the process is so hot that it melts the metal being cut and blows away the molten metal away from the cut thus forming accurate cuts.
Advantages of CNC Plasma Cutter
The plasma cutters used earlier were large, slower, expensive and time consuming metal cutting devices. The modern ones are the CNC plasma cutters known for the faster and more automated versions of metal cutting tasks. These are computer numerical control devices that make use of computer for executing shaping, molding and cutting operations. The entire operation in these CNC plasma cutting devices is automated from start to finish. All required is to feed the design and shape of the cut into the computer. The cutting will be automatically be performed by the machine without requiring any manual help. Therefore one of the best advantages of CNC plasma cutter is that they are labour-free machines.
The main advantage of CNC plasma cutter is that this machine has an ability to produce excellent angular cuttings without having much heat impact on the work piece being cut. It is capable of producing much cleaner and sharp cuts. All this is because of a high speed thin stream of gas used here for cutting application. As based on computer technology these can produce very fast pierce times and speeds for cutting of metals of all thicknesses. These are versatile cutting devices which apart from normal metal cutting can also be used to perform other tasks like piercing, intricate cutting and beveling too. A high quality CNC plasma cutter installed with state-of-the-art software and high precision components can eliminate the need for performing costly secondary operations thereby saving up the extra costs, time and labour of the company. The CNC plasma cutting machines are usually very easy to use. They are installed with user-friendly controls and software which does most of the guess work out of cutting and produces amazing cutting results even in the case when it is operated by a novice user. In comparison to the oxy-fuel cutters, these can cut wider number of metals even the non ferrous materials like aluminum, brass or stainless steel to most accurate sizes and shapes as per requirements. Above all these are safer metal cutting machines because the gas used for metal cutting in these machines is not highly inflammable and therefore the chances of happening of any fire hazards or accidents is greatly reduced with use of these CNC plasma cutting machines.
