Esab Plasma Cutting

 

Plasma cutting is a process that uses a high velocity jet of ionized gas that is delivered from a constricting orifice.  This high velocity ionized gas conducts electricity from the torch of the plasma cutter to the project piece.  The plasma then heats the workpiece, thus melting the material.  After this the high velocity stream of ionized gas mechanically blows the molten metal away, resulting in the severing of the material.  Plasma cutting is very handy for an occasional repair or maintenance jobs of various nature.
