CNC Plasma Cutting
Plasma cutting is a process that cuts through electrically conductive materials by means of an accelerated jet of hot plasma. Typical materials cut by this process include steel, aluminum, brass and copper through other conductive metals may be cut as well. Plasma cutting is often used in fabrication and welding shops, automotive repair and restoration, industrial construction, salvage and scrapping operations. Due to the high speed, precision cuts, combined with low cost of operation, plasma cutting sees a widespread usage from large scale industrial CNC applications down to small hobbyist shops.
Macksteel offers CNC plasma cutting services on plates up to 8′ x 20′
Our plasma cutting system can cut the following materials and thicknesses:
– Steel up to 3″ thick
– Aluminum up to 1-1/2″ thick
– Stainless Steel up to 2″ thick
*Note: Standard plasma cutting tolerances are -0 +1/16″
In oxy-fuel cutting, a torch is used to heat metal to its kindling temperature. A stream of oxygen is then trained on the metal, burning it into a metal oxide that flows out of the kerf as slag.
Using our CNC Oxy-Acetylene torch we can cut up to 6″ thick steel plate.
Standard flame cutting tolerances are -0 +1/8″
