Looking for a custom design for your railing or fence? Our plasma cutting services provide you with specific, tailored cuts of metal and aluminum pieces. All you need to do is provide us with the blueprint and we will then ensure the materials are available – it’s as simple as that.
How Does Plasma Cutting Work?
While plasma cutters can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, they all work on the same process. First, the plasma cutter will send a pressurized gas, such as nitrogen, argon or oxygen through a small channel which contains a negatively charged electrode in its center. As power is applied to this electrode, light contact is made with the end of the plasma cutter nozzle and the metal to be cut, creating a circuit. This circuit then generates a spark, which heats the gas (from step one) as it passes through the channel until it reaches the fourth state of matter (plasma). This reaction creates a direct stream of plasma that is approximately 30,000 F, moving at 20,000 feet/second, which melts the metal to a molten slag that is easily manipulated.
Advantages Of Plasma Cutting
The plasma cutting process is a cost-effective, efficient method to cut through large sheets of metal with precision and ease. Although not as precise as laser cutting, plasma cutting requires no custom tools, and it is especially suited for cutting through thicker metals in comparison. Plasma cutting is often used on a variety of applications including fencing, railings, gates and architectural metal components. It’s most commonly applied to materials such as aluminum and carbon steel.
