CNC (Computer Numerical Control) technology controls the path of the plasma torch via computer programming. Having a computerized cutting path further allows precise controls over the cut quality. Using computer-aided technology system parameters adjust with only a few mouse clicks. Each metal, carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, and non-ferrous metal, contains specific production parameters based on the element’s characteristics. Along with this, the fabricator must also consider the thickness of the metal.
As the materials change, details in the cutting parameters must also change. For example, the feed rate, pierce delay, pierce height, and gas mixture, to name a few. Such details are automated to speed up the process when using a CNC plasma cutting machine. Furthermore, automation reduces the risks of human error during recalibrations to the machine and the plasma arc flow.
