Find and buy plasma cutting machines from verified suppliers on IndustrySearch. A plasma cutting machine is used to cut conductive materials such as steel, aluminium and copper with a high-speed jet of hot plasma or ionized gas.
Factors to consider when buying a plasma cutting machine:
- Manual plasma cutters – Handheld units suitable for trimming and cutting small pieces of metal. Available in conventional and high definition precision models.
- Automatic plasma cutters – Big units suitable for large steel-cutting projects. Includes computer numerically controlled cutters. Available in three configurations: 2D2 axis, 3D/3 axis, and tube and section.
- Duty cycle – Refers to the period a plasma cutting machine can operate safely, determined by the amount of amperage expressed in percentage.
- Input power – Refers to power output, determined by available electrical outlets suck as 110V, 120V or 240V.
- Cutting speed/performance – Consider the desired cutting speed and the thickness of the material to be cut. Types of cut quality include rated cut, severe cut and quality cut.
- Start – Available in either contact start and high-frequency start.
- Control panel – Consider units with controls and indicators that are easy to read and understand.
- Air supply/environment – Some machines have built-in compressors while others have air filtration systems.
- Other features to consider – The cost of consumables or replacement parts, portability, operating cost, cutting torch, ease of use, size and weight, reliability.
