Plasma Cutting

  • Plasma Cutting

In Plasma Cutting, a column of electrically charged gas creates a high-energy arc, which melts the material being worked in a narrow path.  A good alternative for flame-cutting, the plasma-cutting process was originally developed to cut electically conductive materials such as alloy steel or aluminum.
