ESAB Plasma Cutters

Plasma cutting is an extremely versatile fusion cutting process to cut almost all metals. In plasma cutting the arc burns in a highly ionised plasma column between an electrode that does not melt and the work piece. It is restricted further by a nozzle, whereby the power density and the stability of the flowing plasma are greatly increased. The plasma arc that is created in this way has a temperature of up to 25,000 °C. The high energy density of the plasma stream rapidly melts the material and its kinetic energy drives the molten material out of the
cutting groove.
