Fabrication units that take up jobs for various companies, need to fulfil different orders as required by the different companies. These fabrication units usually make use of cutting machines that are specifically programmed to cut the various parts in the exact dimensions required for components, signages, etc. This is where CNC plasma cutters play a very important role and provide the required power and precision to complete the orders accurately and quickly.
The Plasma Cutting Process
CNC plasma cutters can especially cut patterns through metal sheets as per pre-programmed instructions. The patterns and designs can be changed or reused as required for bulk or repeat orders. Once the CNC cutter is programmed, it cuts out the required pattern from the metal using super-heated plasma. CNC plasma cutters can cut up to 300-inches/minute and the new piece is ready for the next stage of processing or assembly.
Advantages of Using CNC Plasma Cutting
CNC plasma cutting offers an extremely flexible and efficient way to meet the varied industrial requirements by making use of a single machine. The machine operators can alter the designs and create more precise cuts on the metal and this is enabled by the software that is used in order to create the designs and cut the metal.
CNC plasma cutting machines have the capability to cut through various thicknesses of metal without stopping once they are programmed. When programmed, CNC machines can cut precisely and accurately without requiring any alterations or adjustments. You can also get superior cut quality, even though the cutting is done very quickly. CNC plasma cutting is so efficient that it prevents debris and dross from collecting on the bottom of the metal, which ensures that you get a clean final product that does not require secondary finishing.
CNC plasma cutting equipment are usually very robust and sturdy and have been built to ensure their longevity, frequent and prolonged use will not damage these cutting machines. These cutting systems can withstand usage at very high temperatures and repeated usage. The computer systems of the CNC plasma cutters can be customised as per the cutting requirement and upgraded to suit the various cutting requirements of the industry. In case a component of the plasma cutter fails, troubleshooting can be done remotely, while the work continues uninterrupted.
CNC plasma cutting has indeed been a boon to small and medium fabricators who have to fill varied and large orders for different industries. These cutters are accurate, fast and can work tirelessly, producing high-quality parts and this can help to increase efficiency, productivity and hence the bottom line.
