In the past, plasma cutters were prohibitively expensive and were used primarily for huge metal-cutting jobs. In recent years, the cost and size of plasma cutters have dropped considerably, making them available for more personal projects. Artists and metal workers use handheld cutters to create unique works of art that would never be possible with conventional metal-working tools. This single tool gives artists the ability to bevel cuts, bore precise holes and cut in just about any way they can conceive.
The plasma cutter is one of the most interesting and powerful tools developed in the 20th century. Using basic principles of physics to harness the fourth state of matter, the plasma cutter performs with nearly magical results. One can only imagine, as our understanding of plasma grows, how many more tools and applications will utilize this fascinating force of nature.
Now its easy to use, even someone who has never seen one, can work with it. We will help you get started.
How does this work on our CNC machines?
Easy, we supply the CNC platform with CNC controller and software.
We supply the Hypertherm Powermax plasma cutter of choice.
The Plasma cutting nozzel mounts on the CNC machine quickly and easily.
Plug the Plasma controller cable into the CNC controller.
Load a file onto the PC and start cutting.
Torch Height Controller
We supply and install a complete THC system for our CNC platforms. The torch height controller allows the CNC machine to control the cut height of the plasma nozzle above the material to give the best cut quality and also the best consumable life span for the torch consumables.
Torch Break Away is added to prevent the torch from getting damaged if it collides with any obstacle on the machine bed
