When plasma cutting, the electrical arc burns between the non-melting electrode and workpiece. The arc is additionally constricted by a nozzle and applied compressed air, which increases the intensity and stability considerably. Due to this construction a highly heated gas with high energy content originates in the torch, whose electrical energy is converted into heat. This ionised gas which transfuses the arc onto the workpiece is called plasma.
By using the plasma-cutting procedure materials such as steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper, cast, brass, etc. can be cut.
The special advantages:
Due to the energy density of the plasma arc a high cutting speed is obtained. The cuts are steep, flash – and distortion free and of high economic efficiency.
Trouble-free handling and use of simple compressed air as a cutting gas offer unlimited possibilities. Used in the steel industry, installation, container construction and many other areas.
