Plasma Cutting Machine consist of Power source with controls, Water Re-circulating system if required and a well designed Torch. The basic principle is that the arc formed between the electrodes and the work piece is constricted by a fine bore, copper nozzle. This increases the temperature and velocity of the plasma emitting from the nozzle. The temperature of the plasma is in excess of 20,000°C and the velocity can approach the speed of sound. When used for cutting, the plasma gas flow is increased so that the deeply penetrating plasma jet cuts through the material and molten material is removed in the efflux plasma.
It can cut all electrically conductive metals like S.S, C.S, Copper, Aluminum, Inconel, Titanium, etc. Metals like Stainless Steel & Aluminum cannot be cut by Oxy - Acetylene as the metal reacts with oxygen during cutting to form oxides whose melting point is higher than the temperature of the Oxy-Acetylene flame. Plasma Arc temperature are in excess of 20,000oC with the high velocity flow which blast through all metals with a very clean finish at high speed.
Cut expanded metal, painted or rusted plates
Nonlinear cuts and beveling for edge preparation before welding
Gouging can be performed just by changing the nozzle
Hand held and mechanized options available
Air plasma cutting up to 70 mm / Gas plasma cutting up to 150mm
