Plasma cutting is one of metal cutting types performed using plasma. To achieve a desired effect a plasma jet is used.
Plasma cutting, if considered in more details, is carried out by means of rapid narrow-point heating of the surface reaching a required temperature, followed by blowing off molten metal.
The jet should move at a certain speed, have exact temperature and electric circuit to achieve desired results.
The advantages of plasma cutting are:
• Great performance and high speed of processing.
• Economical efficiency – plasma cutting has considerably more advantages as compared with standard methods of metal processing.
• Accuracy – deformations from heat treatment are almost invisible and do not require further processing.
