Plasma cutting allows clean cutting of different types of metal using a special plasma torch.
During the operation, a gas is ejected at very high speed from a nozzle, creating an electric arc between the electrode and the metal, thus transforming the gas into plasma. The latter brings the metal to the melting temperature.
AgriEuro offers a range of heavy-duty plasma cutters. These Made in Italy products feature high performance and reliability.
Inverter plasma cutters in our catalogue allow - thanks to their powerful torch - to cut all metals: iron, stainless steel, aluminium, brass, copper.
They can be connected to the home mains and ensure a 30% duty cycle at a maximum current of 35 amperes, guaranteeing excellent results even during intensive operations.
The first thing to know is that plasma cutting produces a lot of smoke, so the machine must necessarily be used outdoors while wearing appropriate protection.
After switching on the machine, approach the torch and activate the remote trigger, thus starting the metal melting phase. Then, the torch must be placed at a proper distance for achieving a clean and regular cut.
The plasma cutting process allows cutting many types of metal. This technique lends itself to every need, as it allows cutting metal sheets of any thickness.
Manual plasma torches can cut metal sheets up to 50 mm thick, while the automatic models can cut metal sheets up to 130 mm.
Cutting is possible using small torches, but also large industrial machines that can cut sheets up to 100 mm.
This cutting technique is mainly used in metallurgy, but also in other fields such as the air conditioning, refrigeration and transport industries.
Plasma cutting can also be used in shipbuilding industry and in companies that cut pipes and similar materials.
This is a procedure that can ensure precise cuts, disregarding the thickness of the material to be cut, but is highly dependent on the machinery used and the skill of the operator.
It is also quick to perform, and can be used for various purposes, such as cutting electrically conductive materials, and ensures precision even in case of edges and aesthetic defects.
There are virtually no defects, but the only main one may depend on the tools used to operate. If their quality is poor, the cut must be refined.
They are two different cutting methods, and offer different results:
Plasma cutters maintenance operations are also easier, while for laser cutters it is often necessary to directly refer to the manufacturer, thus resulting more expensive.
