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 sheets and plates up to 12mx5m.
With over 35 years of industry experience providing a high-definition plasma profiling service, Charles Day is proud to still offer this traditional and cost-effective method of profiling steel.
How Does Plasma Cutting Work?
Plasma cutting is a process of using a jet of ionised gas at temperatures above 20,000 °C to melt and expel material from the desired cut. 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.
What Are The Benefits Of Plasma Cutting?
As well as providing a smoother cut edge compared to a 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.
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.
