There are many ways to cut metal. The most common methods are plasma and gas cutting of metals. Each technique has its own merits and advantages, and the choice will depend on the final goals set.
Gas cutting is the most common method, until some time this technique was used everywhere. It is carried out using a gas burner and a gearbox, the metal is heated to the desired temperature before cutting. Using this method, you can perform curly cutting quickly and without any special financial costs. With the help of special equipment, it is possible to cut material up to two meters thick.
Plasma is performed using a plasma cutter. This involves the action of plasma energy, which is twice as fast as the speed of sound. The process is characterized by high precision and high speed. The quality is also at a high level — no chips, cracks or unevenness. In rare cases, slight scales are formed, which, if necessary, can be easily spoken.
Advantages of gas over other methods:
high precision cutting shapes along the contour;
no vertical bevel;
no burr (minimum amount);
no post-machining necessary.
If we talk about the advantages of plasma, then the following can be distinguished here: accuracy and speed;
the ability to cut all types of metals — black, colored, stainless steel;
Ability to work with material up to 20 mm thick.
Plasma cutting is more expensive than gas cutting. This is due to the use of expensive equipment, but in some cases it is impossible to do without this technique. Not all companies can order plasma metal cutting services, because special skills and experience are required to perform the work.
These two methods are in no way in competition with each other and it is impossible to say which one is better. Each method has its own application. For example, gas is indispensable when dismantling structures, while plasma is indispensable in mechanical engineering, aviation — when the process must be performed not only of quality, but also quickly.
