Plasma in the 20th Century
was stumbled upon during the second half of the 19th century during the height of World War II while researching methods to improve the welding of aircraft parts. Research led to the discovery of a new welding method which utilized a protective inert gas barrier around an electric arc to protect the weld points from oxidation.
Over the next several decades further research into perfecting the process, it was determined that by restricting the nozzle out which the inert gas was forced out, when the gas became electrically charged the heat produced was increased exponentially, a smaller nozzle also increased the flow speed of the gas – no longer causing a weld but rather a cut through the metal piece, turning the metal into molten slag.
Currently, plasma machines produce a stream of plasma at approximately 16,650 degrees Celsius and can move at 6,096m/sec. The process has been perfected to include multiple channels ejecting gas, one set to create plasma to perform the cut while another set of channels ejects gas to shield the cutting area.
have become a staple of the industry as the costs of manufacturing have dropped considerably. These machines range from heavy duty industrial cutters, to portable lightweight tools for artists working in metal, or locksmiths needing to bore into safes and vaults.
The perfect tool to cut into electrically conductive metals can not only be used for cutting, boring, beveling and welding but also for maintenance of rusted, painted and dirty metal such as farm equipment or automotive restoration. The versatility of this tool is incredibly appealing to the manufacturing sectors such as automotive and military used to create chassis and frames.
