Plasma cutting is a particular cutting technique that's carried out by exploiting the energy of a gas flow. It allows for the cutting of any materials whose compositions do not allow them to be processed using oxy acetylene torches.
Plasma cutting is capable of providing for greater cutting speeds, even with high-strength steels. Plasma cutting is also unsurpassed when it comes to cutting high-alloy steels and medium to high thickness aluminium-based materials.
Plasma cutting operations produce fumes that can generate fine dusts with a particle size of even less than 1 micron when cooled, thus requiring extremely low filtration speeds.
