Plasma Cutting Systems

This technology forces oxygen, nitrogen, argon, or even shop air through a small nozzle orifice inside a torch to create a high pressured gas flow, then introduces an electric arc started from an external power supply to generate an extremely high temperature plasma arc that can quickly pierce through a very wide range of electrically conductive alloys, including plain carbon and stainless steels, aluminum and its alloys, nickel alloys and titanium, and blow away any molten material. Because the cost of a plasma torch is low, traditional systems fit several torches to a cutting table and move the torches while the sheet of material being cut is held stationary.

Rebuilding American Manufacturing, One Veteran at a Time

With Video

A perfect storm: One million veterans leave the service every five years as a projected two million manufacturing jobs go unfilled in the U.S. over the next decade due to lack of skilled labor. Take a closer look at how veterans are forging new careers in metalworking through Workshops for Warriors – and how manufacturers can put skin in the game with support.
