CNC plasma cutting machines and the technology behind it.

News Tips and Advises Tutorials

The technology behind CNC has been evolving over years since the 1940S. A lot of improvements have been made to suit the needs of the consumers. The plasma cutting machines are now suitable for large and small-scale manufacture, artist and even DIY enthusiasts.

Easy to cut precious metals to any shapes.

The machine has made it easy to cut precious metals to any shapes, it is suitable for the designers who need to customize metal plates, through this wonderful invention industrial business operators can now get quick and accurately cut hundreds of identical shapes using handheld plasma cutting system or mechanized plasma. There are several reasons why plasma cutting machines are very important in the designing industry. The industries have been relying on the heavy metals to build structures, cars, and other components that need accuracy in designing and accuracy from metal components, also its used on medium and lite metal to build home internal and garden decorations. However, while metal is incredibly strong, it’s also highly resistant to damage, meaning specialist machinery is required to accurately cut and manipulate the materials.

Plasma and superheated, ionized gas.

The plasma cutting technology involves creating an electrical channel of superheated, ionized gas for example plasma from itself through the work peace to be designed, thus forming a completed electric circuit back to the plasma cutter via a grounding clamp. This is normally accomplished by compressed air, Oxygen and other inserts depending on the material being designed. The process formed an arc within the gas between an electrode near or integrated into the gas nozzle and the workpiece itself. The arc ionizes some of the gas this creates an electrically conductive channel of plasma. As this electricity being formed, the cutter torch travels down the plasma which it delivers sufficient heat to melt through the workpiece. At the same time, the compressed gas together with high-velocity plasma blows the hot molten metal away this help in separating the pieces.

Thickness and limits.

You get a perfect cutting on both thick and thin materials alike using plasma as a cutting tool the normal hand cutting can be used to cut up to 1.5 inches (38mm) thick steel plate. A stronger computer controlled can cut up to 6 inches (150 mm) they are extremely useful for cutting sheet metal in curved or angled shapes this is because the plasma cutters produce very hot and localized cone.

Need safety with plasma.

The safety measures have to be taken while using any machine in the world, and it is recommended to use the guidelines put in place by inventors and manufactures regulations in order to be safe when using them. Proper eye protection and the face shield is required to prevent arc eye and debris damage. The recommended lenses to use are green lenses shade.
