Advantages of CNC Plasma Cutting
CNC plasma cutting (computer numerical control plasma cutting) is a process that has been around for the last 30 years.
CNC plasma cutting systems use computers to design shapes and to control the cutting process, resulting in shapes that are very smooth and precise and that may include sharp corners, intricate curves and inside cuts.
Benefits of Using the CNC Plasma Cutting:
- Precision and Accuracy- The plasma cutting machines are equipped with gears that ensure cutting is accurate without deviating from the measurements specified. CNC plasma cutters are computer operated and paired with the latest technologies. That means that cuts are sharp and clean, ensuring greater precision and accuracy throughout the entire cutting process.
- Variety of Materials- CNC plasma cutting can be used for a wide range of metals of varying thicknesses. The cutter can be used for cutting both ferrous and non-ferrous metals and can cut through them effectively and effortlessly.
- Efficiency- The CNC plasma cutter can cut alloys much faster than oxy-fuel cutting, making it one of the most efficient cutting technologies available to fabrication specialists.
- Quick Operation- CNC plasma cutters do not require preheating and the torch can begin the cutting process instantly. Also cutting speeds of the CNC plasma cutters are quite high operating up to speeds of around 500 inches per minute.
The benefits of the CNC plasma cutting system are endless when compared to other methods of cutting. Due to the great precision and efficiency that can be achieved, it’s it is no wonder that CNC Plasma Cutting is a very popular method and is now being widely used in the manufacturing and construction sectors.
