How Plasma Cutters Work
Plasma cuter work by cutting metal using a plasma torch. You have to create a plasma in order for a plasma cutter to work. Having a liquid and gas composition, you can create a plasma which is superheated.
In order to make a plasma cutter work, it uses compressed inert gases and electricity. In order to cut the metal, the plasma cutter creates an electric circuit with the metal being cut. Touching the end of the nozzle with the metal will then create an electrical circuit. By using the negative electrode, the electrical sparks and the fast flowing inert gasses will meet. The combination of the gas and the electricity will heat up that gas to up to 15,000 degrees Celsius and will then transform to a plasma...Read More
