In the manufacturing world, plasma cutting has become a popular process for cutting sheet metal. But what is CNC plasma cutting? And how does it work? In this blog post, we will answer these questions and give you a basic overview of the process.

What is a CNC plasma cutter?

CNC stands for computer numerical control. CNC plasma cutters are computer-controlled machines that use a high-powered plasma torch to cut or shape metal.

How does plasma cutting work?

To start the process, the operator will input the desired cut into the computer. The computer will then generate a path for the plasma torch to follow. The operator will then start the plasma torch and guide it along the path. As the plasma torch moves, it will heat up the metal and cut through it.

The speed of the plasma torch and the amount of power it uses will determine the quality of the cut. If the operator moves too slowly, the cuts will be jagged and rough. If the operator moves too quickly, the metal may not be completely cut through.

CNC plasma cutting is a quick and accurate way to cut through metal. With the help of a computer, the operator can make very precise cuts. If you are looking for a way to quickly and easily cut through metal, CNC plasma cutting may be the right process for you.

What kind of things are made with CNC plasma cutting?

There are many things that can be made with CNC plasma cutting, such as signs for your business or numbers for your house. You can make artwork or furniture for indoors like a wine rack or outdoor decor such as a firepit.

Plasma cutting can also be used to make metal parts for a project such as a bracket or even small parts for your vehicle. If you have a particular idea in mind and you’re not sure if plasma cutting is the right fit, feel free to contact us for more information.
