CNC Plasma Cutting Machine
CNC or computer numeric controlled plasma cutting systems are extremely efficient for the purpose of cutting metals. You can cut different kinds of metals effortlessly such as carbon fibre, stainless steel, iron, aluminium, etc. using a CNC cutting system. Typically, a plasma cutting system has a plethora of features.
A CNC cutting machine can be programmed to move precisely in all directions and ensures that you get high-quality, precise cuts. There is minimal human intervention required in the operation of a CNC plasma cutter.
It is no wonder that today, CNC plasma cutting machines have become so popular and are being widely used in manufacturing industries.
Advantages of a CNC Plasma Cutting Machine
You can maintain a higher level of consistency in the cutting process by using CNC machines as compared to human operators. This helps to reduce wastage and improve the quality of part production. This is also very critical when it comes to maintaining tight dimensional tolerance of the parts.
Lower Cost of Labour
Since the CNC is mostly automatic, once programmed it can work on its own with minimal human intervention. Hence, there is no need for skilled machinists to operate the cutting machine. Any person with a lower skill level can supervise several cutting machines at once, thereby, bringing down the labour cost further.
The CNC cutter can accept changes in the design easily and quickly, and the engineering team can update the parts and the designs without the requirement to change the expensive tooling. This also gives the machine the flexibility to move from manufacturing one part to another without wasting any time in the tooling setup.
Adaptable to Complex Designs
Usually, complex curves are the hardest things to machine cut. However, CNC cutting machines can consistently and accurately machine around these curves. However complex the design, CNC cutting machines maintain precision and tight tolerance.
Increase in Productivity
Unlike humans, CNC machines don’t need breaks, don’t require sleep, and don’t fall sick. They usually take time off when they have to undergo periodical maintenance. This helps to increase productivity and reduce the price per part.
As the parts are cut consecutively on the CNC machine, there is no wastage of material. Also, the consistency in the machining process practically eliminates the number of parts being scrapped for not passing quality checks.
The CNC plasma process is beneficial in several ways. It helps to reduce production costs, improves productivity and reduces material wastage. CNC plasma cutters can produce the maximum yield when programmed and the program can be used repeatedly or can be upgraded if needed.
