Plasma Cutting

Plasma Cutting

Experts in plasma cutting

Plasma cutting is one of many cutting methods we employ at MJ Patch & CO as part of our extensive steel and metal fabrication offer. With a workforce of trained and experienced plasma cutting specialists, you can be sure that your requirements will be carried out to a high standard.  

What is plasma cutting?

This method of cutting relies on a process whereby highly pressurised inert gases are blown through an electrical arc which creates a state known as plasma. The temperature of plasma is extremely hot reaching temperatures of up to 20,000°C and because the metal being cut conducts the electrical arc, the plasma is directed onto the localised area at speed producing a powerful separation force. To ensure a clean cut we also employ an additional jet of ionised gas for the purpose of clearing the cutting incision of molten metal.

What Metals can be cut with plasma?

Electrically conductive metals can be cut using plasma. The force of the plasma is applied through the electrical arc which must make contact with the metal. We can cut:

  • Iron
  • Aluminium
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Titanium
  • Lead
  • Cast iron
  • Zinc
  • Various alloys

What is plasma cutting used for and what are the benefits?

Being able to cut through thick electroconductive metals makes plasma the perfect option for manufacturing:

  • Balconies
  • Canopies
  • Durbar Plates
  • Purlins
  • Steel frames

Deeper cut – Plasma gas can reach temperatures of up to xxx degrees Celsius. As it can also be used at pressure, plasma cutting is very effective at cutting through very thick aluminium and steels. This range makes plasma cutting ideal for manufacturing medium to large construction steel products such as pre-cambered trusses.

Cost effective –  Plasma cutting is very cost effective when you consider the output. This means that you as the consumer can directly benefit from our competitive pricing rates for structural steel fabrication and architectural metal works.   

Shorter lead times – Due to the efficiency of our plasma manufacturing beds, we can guarantee impressively short lead times that are sure to work with your project timetable.
