What Is a Plasma Cutter?

Plasma cutting has been around since the 1960s, but with advancements in technology, this type of metal cutting has become the standard for several reasons. Plasma cutting is achieved by using a plasma torch, which blows gas at a very high rate of speed through the torch’s nozzle, creating an extremely hot and penetrating flame. The reason a plasma torch flame is different from normal torches is that while the gas is being blown through the torch, an electrical arc is formed, and this electrical arc turns some of the gas into plasma. Plasma becomes so hot that it melts the metal it comes into contact with; the speed of the gas blows the melted metal away from the fresh cut.

Because of these actions, plasma cutting offers some advantages lesser cutting methods can’t: first, plasma cutting is very precise, allowing for sheet metal to be cut on varying angles and shapes; second, a wide range of sheet metal thicknesses can be easily cut using a plasma cutter. Third, plasma cutters are fast, which helps our fabricators create and produce your sheet metal pieces quickly. Combining these capabilities with programmability, as we do at Donald P. Dick Air Conditioning, means that we can meet all of your sheet metal fabrication requirements in a timely manner.
