PRECISION FABRICATION WITH CNC PLASMA CUTTING
Serious projects of scale and functionality usually require metal in the builds.
Take your fabrication capabilities to the next level with the precision and quality of CNC plasma parts.
MAKE SOME SPARKS WITH OUR CNC PLASMA CUTTER
Plasma cutting in they way we know it has been around since the 1960’s. It makes quick work of cutting very hard and abrasive metals, making metal fabrication a less daunting task.
Plasma cutting is often used by automotive shops doing custom work or restorations. It’s place in industry is cemented in history (an early form of plasma cutting was used during WWII).
Plasma cutting works by creating a plasma arc by electrically superheating and feeding gas (usually compressed air) through a small nozzle. The temperatures are around 30,000F to blast straight through just about any metal including heavy gauge steel.
Today, many CNC machines are purpose built to plasma cut metal. The advantages are obvious; the variables are all controlled precisely, leading to cleaner, superior, and repeatable cuts over hand applications of plasma cutting.
MEET THE BOSS OF CNC PLASMA TABLES
The Boss Tables WHC-PRO 5’x10′ Plasma cutter was a great addition to our shop, and it certainly lives up to the name as a stout CNC machine.
Features of the WHC-PRO 5’x10′
- Hypertherm 85 Sync Plasma Cutter with machine dedicated nozzle.
- Cuts up to 1″ material and cuts most metals including steel, brass, copper, and aluminum
- Outfitted with a scribe for engraving serial numbers, logos, information, or designs onto the face of the metal
File Requirements for CNC Plasma Cutting
Like 2D CNC routing, a clean file of closed loop vector shapes is required for CNC plasma processing. Vector files such as .ai, .dxf, .dwg, .eps, .pdf can be accepted.
