Plasma Cutting

what is plasma cutting?

Plasma arc cutting uses the principles of passing an electric arc through a quantity of gas traveling through a restricted outlet. The gas is heated by the electric arc to such a high temperature that it turns it into what physicists call 'plasma'. Plasma cutters are suited for use in a variety of industries from food processing to commercial ship repair to agricultural equipment manufacturing - the applications are extensive.
