What is a CNC Machine?
CNC is shorthand for ‘computer numerical control’. CNC systems are those that make use of optics and a programmable guidance system to make precisely controlled cuts in a working material. The technology itself is not particularly new. The first CNC was built back in the 50’s. But vast iterative improvements have been made even over recent decades to make this technology what it is today.
What is Plasma Cutting?
Plasma cutting is a remarkably versatile way to handle metal cutting. It’s an approach that sees a plasma cutting implement use a jet of ionized gas running at temperatures over 20,000°C to run clean lines through materials of almost any type in virtually any condition.
In some ways, the interior of a plasma cutter resembles a jet engine. Gas enters the ignition chamber through a wide intake and exits through a much narrower outlet. As the gas flows along this path, it is ignited by a powerful electric charge. The result causes the gas particles to become electrically charged, which attracts them to the metal plate where the circuit shorts out. The heat resulting from this reaction has a laser-like cutting effect on the metal, giving a very quick and precise cut, without the artefacts and defects common to many other cutting methods.
Equip your Metalworking Business with Asset Plant & Machinery
Plasma cutting is extremely well suited to a variety of engineering and metalworking applications. But it isn’t the only method that is available to our clients. We can equip your organisation with CNC machines equipped with laser or even combined plasma and oxy fuel cutting implements that each have their own strengths in performance and value added to your metalworking business.
