Are the plasma cutters the right choice for welding?

Plasma, it is a gas and it has unique status and unbelievable cutting power due to its collision of fast moving electrons with other electrons and ions. Plasma cutter is a welding machine that uses this high ionized gas and when any welding work is done with this welder, it gives accuracy and fast cutting. It is an only welder that is used to cut metals of different thickness and this process has its origin almost fifty years ago during the period of World War II. When you see how it was developed, its origination is simple and it is used to improve the joining of aircraft materials. It uses a protective barrier of inert gas to protect the weld from oxidation. Plasma cutting process is a vital process for nay industry and by using this welder; the industries can create a product with accurate shape and control.

The plasma cutter welding machine comes in all size and shapes and they are the welders that perform the same function in spite of their size and shape. They generally work by sending gas through an electric arc and a powerful spark is generated between the electrode and the metal. The plasma gas itself conducts electric current and the arc is continues as long as there is frequent power supply to the electrode. The plasma cutting welding machine uses number of methods to start the arc and they are of inverter type and gives greater efficiencies. It also performs the other process called plasma gouging and this process can be done with the single machine and it reduces the expense of buying other machine. The plasma cutter can perform multi axis cut of thicker material and this welders has increased flexibility, optimum safety and faster operation.

This welding machine has been designed with portability and has some special features for track torch operation. It is available in different types and has adjustable post flow cooling so that it can handle routine shop challenges with ease. The plasma cutter has efficient duty cycle and runs in both single phase and three phases. Its duty cycle is enormous and can withstand for long duration with ease and without heat. It has the cooling facility built in so whenever the welder gets heated up, the cooler automatically cools it and has the high frequency start type. It is recommended for different metal thickness and typically used in different applications such as HVAC to general repair. This welding machine has over current warning facility and warns whenever the current exceeds the capacity. It virtually cuts any metal with ease and use torches with inexpensive service parts and consumables.

It has digital meter reading and keeps the user updated on unit operating condition and you can cut any metals where the cutting is impractical and slow. It is excellent choice for smooth cuts and it is very simple to use if you handle it properly. So with all these features, this welding machine stands better than other welding machines and it is an excellent choice for welding operation.
