When it comes to cutting various types of materials for a range of manufacturing and construction applications, nothing quite compares to plasma cutting tables. At Baileigh Industrial our plasma tables are computer automated. Therefore, they allow optimal accuracy with every cut you make. Our metal fabrication machines take the geometric dimensions inputted, and cut to size accordingly. In addition, Baileigh Industrial plasma cutting tables have customisable functionalities. Therefore, you have the ability to change the settings based on the requirements of the project.
At Baileigh Industrial, we offer an array of powerful plasma cutting tables to optimise the productivity of your projects.
How does a Plasma Cutter work?
Plasma cutting tables work by sending an electric arc through a gas that is guided through a constricted nozzle. This process increases the temperature of the gas to the point that it enters a 4th state of matter, known as plasma. The first three being solid, liquid and gas. The metal that is being cut forms part of the circuit. As a result, the electrical conductivity of the plasma causes the arc to transfer to the work.
Due to the restricted opening, the gas that passes through is squeezed at a high speed. This high speed gas cuts through the metal material. Materials cut with a plasma torch include steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and copper. Other conductive metals may be cut as well.
Benefits of Plasma Cutting Tables
A plasma torch cutter operates with extreme efficiency. They can often cut up to 200 inches per minute. Due to the high speed and precision cuts, combined with low cost, plasma cutting sees widespread use in a range of industries. For example in fabrication shops, automotive repair and restoration, industrial construction, plus many more.
Plasma cutting tables are able to cut materials much thicker than other machines and processes, without affecting the end result. Metal fabrication machines offer significant benefits by delivering a powerful cutting solution for difficult and challenging industrial projects.
Our Plasma Cutters
The series of metal fabrication machines we offer are powerful, economical and produce high quality results. Baileigh Industrial torches can cut up to 40mm mild, and tables from 2′ x 2′, up to our 10′ table, encompassing the needs of hobbyists and production facilities alike.
In addition to the benefits outlined above, we also provide excellent support for our plasma cutting tables. For more information, head to our website. Alternatively, call +44 (0)24 7661 9267 to speak to a member of our helpful and friendly team.
