Having the plasma cutter manufacturer right

Plasma cutting machine use an inert gas and electrical current to create a powerful torch that can cut through metal. The gas is blown through the machine's nozzle at high speed along with an electrical arc. The arc heats up the gas and converts it into hot plasma. The heat of the torch melts the metal as it cuts, leaving smooth, clean edges.
Portable plasma cutters are used by contractors to cut metal while working out in the field. This makes it easy for mechanical contractors or HVAC servicemen to make needed repairs on-site instead of having to bring large pieces of metal back to the shop for cutting. Many times, all that is needed is a simple trim to make two metal pieces fit together. Having the plasma cutter manufacturer right there on the site keeps the job from slowing down while waiting for the fabrication shop to make the necessary adjustments.

The CNC plasma cutting machine arc system as described above has high cycle time. First, a torch operator must know some basic cutting parameters, such as the material to be cut, the thickness of the work piece, and the plasma gas to be used. Then, the operator must review a series of tables found in books to manually set many parameters such as the power settings on the power supply or the gas flow on the gas console. Having to look up additional parameters takes time and may result in operator error as manual input can be inaccurate.

In addition, some components such as the torch height control and the power supply have their own control, which can be redundant. Furthermore, there is no feedback mechanism between the components of the plasma arc system to optimize the operation of the plasma arc system.
Artists also use small plasma cutters to create unique works from metal. The tip of the plasma cutter can make very fine incisions in the metal, allowing the artist to make intricate patterns in the metal. Metal templates can also be created with a plasma cutter and used as a stencil for other forms of art.
