Plasma Cutting

Plasma cutting can be performed on any type of conductive metal – mild steel, aluminium and stainless steel
as well as others. With mild steel, operators will experience faster, thicker cuts than with alloys.

Plasma cutting produces enough energy to melt the metal and creates the momentum to blow it away.
Because of this, plasma cutting:

  • can cut non–ferrous materials,
  • requires a lower skill level,
  • offers faster travel speeds,
  • in addition, it does not require the use of flammable or explosive materials and is, therefore, safer
    to operate.

The ProCut systems employ Dual–Winding Technology TM with separate windings for the pilot and cutting arc. The pilot arc is optimised during current transfer for a fast, positive transfer – the arc snaps to the work piece.

The elimination of the large resistor usually found in plasma cutting machines allows for smaller units with increased portability.

The Pro–Cut line has only three front–end parts in the torch, and only two of those are consumables:

  • the electrode,
  • the nozzle.

When replacing these consumables, the changeovers are tool–less.

Disadvantages of plasma cutting (compared to gas cutting):

  • higher cost of plasma cutting power source,
  • requirement for electricity and compressed air supply
