Plasma Cutting Services

We offer CNC plasma cutting services for sheet metal. We use two types of plasma cutters 2- and 3-axis, which makes it possible to produce parts of any complexity applicable for this fabrication method. The cut parts can be post-processed upon request with coating, heat-treatment and others.

Finishing Options

As-Machined

This is a finish option with the fastest turnaround. Parts are left with visible tool marks and potentially sharp edges and burrs, which can be removed upon request.

Coating services
  • Zing Coating / Galvanising
  • Electroless Nickel Plating
  • Anodizing: Hard & Colour (Black Hardcoat, Black, Blue, Gold, Gray Hardcoat, Green, Natural Hardcoat, Natural, Orange, Red)
  • Passivate
Surface finishes
  • Polishing / Electropolishing
  • Case Hardening
  • Powder Coating : This is a process where powdered paint is sprayed onto a part which is then baked in an oven. This creates a strong, wear- and corrosion-resistant layer that is more durable than standard painting methods. A wide variety of colors are available to create the desired aesthetic.
Heat treatment
  • Tempering
  • Annealing
Custom

Additional processing and finishes on request.

Overview: What is Plasma Cutting?

The Basics Of Plasma Cutters

CNC plasma cutting technology is used to cut sheet metal of higher thickness (up to 300 mm) in comparison to laser cutting, which is used for thinner sheets (up to 15 mm). The technology of plasma cutting uses a jet of hot plasma to cut parts out of conductive materials. The cutting occurs as the result of establishing an electric channel of superheated gas between a plasma cutter and the material. As in the other CNC machining technologies, the CNC plasma cutting process is guided by a computer that follows a pre-uploaded CAD model.

Plasma Cutters

There are 2- and 3-axis types of plasma cutters available on the market.

Tolerances

A standard tolerance level for the majority of CNC plasma cutters ranges from 0.1 to 0.2 mm depending on the size and requirements. But tolerance levels may be adjusted to our customer’s requirements.

Size Limitations

Any size, maximal thickness of sheet steel and aluminium up to 40 mm.
