  Plasma Cutting: Determining if it's Right for You and What to Look for in a Machine | Lincoln Electric
In simplest terms, plasma cutting is a process that uses a high velocity jet of ionized gas that is delivered from a constricting orifice.
Plasma cutting is typically easier for the novice to master, and on thinner materials, plasma cutting is much faster than oxyfuel cutting.
The plasma cutting machines are typically more expensive than oxyacetylene, and also, oxyacetylene does not require access to electrical power or compressed air which may make it a more convenient method for some users.

 Stainless Plate Products - White Paper, Plasma Cutting
A plasma jet can either be operated in the transferred mode, where the power supply is connected between the electrode and the workpiece, or in the nontransferred mode where the power supply is connected between the electrode and the nozzle.
Although a stream of hot plasma emerges from the nozzle in both modes of operation, the transferred mode is always used in plasma cutting because the usable heat input is most efficiently applied when the arc is in electrical contact with the workpiece.
An important property of these cuts is that when viewed in the direction of the cut, as shown in Figure 6, the right side of the kerf is square and the left side of the kerf is slightly beveled.

 Plasma cutting history
Although a stream of hot plasma emerges from the nozzle in both modes of operation, the transferred mode is invariably used in plasma cutting because the usable heat input to the workpiece is more efficiently applied when the arc is in electrical contact with the workpiece.
Finally, when cutting in water, some water surrounding the cut zone is disassociated into oxygen and hydrogen, and the freed oxygen has a tendency to combine with the molten metal from the cut (especially aluminum and other light metals) to form metal oxide, which leaves free hydrogen gas in the water.
Plasma arc cutting was finally accepted as the new method for metal cutting and considered a valuable tool in all segments of the modern metalworking industry.

 Farr | Gold Series Applications - Plasma Cutting
Plasma cutters are available in portable units much like an acetylene torch as well as CNC controlled plasma tables.
The plasma cutter is mounted to a gantry that positions and moves the plasma head to cut the desired pattern in the metal.
As the metal being cut is part of the circuit, the electrical conductivity of the plasma causes the arc to transfer to the work.

 Plasma cutting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Plasma cutting is a process used to cut steel and other metals (or sometimes other materials) using a plasma torch.
Plasma cutters use a number of methods to start the pilot arc, depending on the environment the unit is to be used in and its age.
Plasma gouging is a related process, typically performed on the same equipment as plasma cutting.

 Tech Tips for Plasma Cutting
Plasma arc cutting is a process in which an open arc, much like TIG welding, can be constricted by passing through a small nozzle, or orifice, from the electrode to the work -- piece.
A properly installed air plasma arc cutting setup is safer than oxyfuel gas cutting because there is a chance of flashbacks and the danger of flammable gases in exposed hoses with oxyfuel torches.
Plasma cutting also is easier for hole piercing due to the plasma jet.

 Laser cutting vs. plasma cutting - standard metal cutting processes
Plasma (arc) cutting was developed in the 1950s for cutting of metals that could not be flame cut, such as stainless steel, aluminum and copper.
The plasma arc cutting process uses electrically conductive gas to transfer energy from an electrical power source through a plasma cutting torch to the material being cut.
The temperature of the plasma arc melts the metal and pierces through the workpiece while the high velocity gas flow removes the molten material from the bottom of the cut, or the kerf.

 Plasma Cutting
Plasma cutting, which is an electrical/thermal process, utilizes a highly constricted arc surrounded by a swirled column of ionized gas.
Plasma's most obvious advantage is its ability to cut all electrically conductive metals, including stainless steel and aluminum.
Users of plasma are also quick to point out that the absence of a preheat cycle results in less heat transfer to the work-piece, which can reduce warping and twisting of the metal.

 Plasma Cutting: Then and now
Plasma cutting has come a long way since paper punch machines were used to write G-codes for the cutting controller.
It wasn't that long ago that plasma cutting was the domain of seasoned metal fabrication veterans who knew just how to tweak gas settings and adjust torch height to get the best cut on a plasma cutting table.
What is left is the plasma cutting system, which in many cases still provides a quality cut but without the expertise needed to guide the machine.

Plasma cutters are used in various branches as steel construction, assembly works, repairs, automobile repairs etc.
The success of plasma cutting is simply the plasma beam, an electric arc, which produces an extremely narrow and intense arc, with liwithed heat.
Due to a low demand quantity of the compressed air as carrier gas, the plasma cutting is a very economical method.

 Making plasma cutting easier: Using CNC automation technology
This level of control is achieved by linking all parameters of a plasma unit to the same CNC unit that instructs the motion of the head, which allows the controller to compute all factors that might affect the quality of a cut.
Once the cutting begins, the distance between the torch and the top of the material is maintained by reading the voltage from the plasma arc, in a process known as automatic torch height control (ATHC).
To ensure a high-quality cut, it is important to maintain a constant distance between the torch and the material surface.
