Checklist for Choosing a Plasma Cutter

December 12, 2015

When shopping around for a plasma cutter, there are a number of aspects to consider so that you can choose the best cutting tool. The first step to making sure you buy the best one is to figure out what type of plasma cutting you intend to do. Are you planning to cut on a table, or by hand? There are plasma cutting tools that can perform both, going from mechanised to handheld cutting, and back again with ease.

A quick checklist should include:

• Reliability;
• Duty cycle;
• Ease of use;
• Cut capacity and quality; and
• Operating cost, to name only a few.

There are plasma cutters that include a CNC interface, along with an internal voltage divider. This also provides more options for mechanised applications. Once you determine the type of plasma cutting you need to do, take into account the level of thickness of the material you intend to cut.

Make a Wise Investment Choice in Cutting Edge Plasma Cutters
The general rule of thumb is that you choose a plasma cutter with the cut capacity that matches your material’s thickness up to 80% of the time. Of course cut quality is an important factor to consider when choosing which plasma cutter to invest in.
