We recommend the Hypertherm Powermax Range for their excellent build quality and reliability. The higher the power rating of the plasma power unit, the greater the duty cycle is at lower current output settings. Select a more powerful unit if you plan to cut most of the dayl. If you will be using your machine frequently, but not continuously, consider a unit that is capable of cutting the thickest material you are likely to work with.
The Grip-Tech Plasma Torch height control system is an advanced Z axis control that enables our machines to cut all metals, even rusted or warped materials, equally accurately and ensure a consistently high cut quality with minimal or dross free cuts.
Oxy Acetylene is the traditional, manual way of cutting steel, and CNC Laser is often seen as the only alternative due mainly to its accuracy and the narrow cut it produces. Plasma cutting has made great advances in cut quality and is the ideal cutting process for most applications. What are the advantages of Plasma cutting and how does the process compare to Oxy-acetylene and Laser cutting?
