Plasma Cutting

Sub-Contract HD Plasma Profiling

Often touted as an alternative to flame cutting, high definition plasma cutting is perfect for profiling carbon/mild steels, aluminium and stainless steel up to 40mm thick. Our twin-head plasma machine can handle sheet and plates up to 12m x 5m.

With over 35 years experience providing a high-definition plasma profiling service, Charles Day continues to provide this traditional and cost-effective method of profiling steel.

High-definition plasma profiling has the advantage over flame cutting due to its ability to profile stainless steel and aluminium – alongside a vast array of carbon steels.

Our twin-head plasma cutting machine offers a cutting bed 12m x 5m and is an ideal choice for large sheets requiring a higher accuracy edge squareness than flame cutting.

As well as providing a smoother cut edge compared to flame, hi-def plasma cutting can also prove to be faster and cheaper than flame on certain thicknesses – If this is the case, we will always offer you the choice between cutting methods to ensure you get the best value profiled parts.
