Plasma Cutting

Our high-definition plasma cutting machine brings your custom designs to life. Whether you need a specialized part or a decorative piece, we’ve got you covered. The video below showcases the cutting process for a custom flange precisely fitting a 20” standard wall pipe. We routinely create small and large-scale decorative pieces, including custom nameplates and intricate structural and decorative archways.

What is Plasma Cutting?

Plasma cutting is a process that utilizes a high-velocity jet of ionized gas, or plasma, to cut through electrically conductive materials.

How Plasma Cutting Works

  1. Ionization of Gas: A plasma cutter generates an electric arc through a gas that passes through a constricted opening.
  2. Creation of Plasma: The electric arc ionizes the gas, creating plasma reaching extremely high temperatures (up to 30,000°F).
  3. Cutting the Material: The high-velocity plasma jet melts the material and blows the molten metal away from the cut, leaving a clean and precise edge.

Why Choose Plasma Cutting?

Plasma cuts are clean, precise, and reproducible. The heat-affected zone is small compared to oxy-fuel cutting, creating a surface that maintains its metallurgy and welding surface, especially in alloyed steels.

Ideal for Various Industries

Plasma cutting can meet your construction, automotive repair, or metal fabrication needs. Its ability to handle different materials and thicknesses makes it suitable for various applications.

Improved Efficiency and Productivity

With its high speed and precision, plasma cutting reduces the time needed for each project, allowing businesses to increase their output and meet tight deadlines.

High-Quality Results

High-quality cuts are crucial for any manufacturing process. Plasma cutting ensures reliable and repeatable results, enhancing the quality of the final product.
