Plasma Cutting Machine Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2017–2025
Global Plasma Cutting Machine Market: Snapshot
A plasma cutting machine mainly makes use of an electrically conductive gas to transfer energy from a power supply to any other conductive material, thus resulting in a cleaner and faster cutting process than any other oxyfuel.
The cutting system mainly works by formation of a plasma arc when a gas such as nitrogen, oxygen, argon, or even air is made to go through small nozzle inside a torch. An electric arc is formed from the external power supply used to generate enough energy, which is then introduced to a high pressure gas flow. This flow is what we commonly call the plasma jet. This jet reaches temperatures off about 40,000 degrees Fahrenheit. After reaching up to such a high temperature, the flow can easily penetrate through most materials, by blowing away the molten material.
As such cutting operations provide a lot of ease when carried out with the help of plasma technology, these processes are widely used all over the world, thus constituting a distinct plasma cutting machine market. Plasma cutting systems comprise three major portions, viz. the power supply, the arc starting console, and the plasma torch.
The power supply converts a single or three phase AC line voltage into a smooth and constant DC voltage that may differ from machine to machine. This voltage is mainly needed for keeping the plasma arc steady throughout the cutting process. The arc starting console produces AC voltage that can form a spark inside the plasma torch to create the plasma arc. And the plasma torch mainly provides proper alignment and cooling of the consumables. Major consumable parts needed for plasma arc generation are the swirl ring, electrode, and the nozzle. In some machines, a shielding cap may also be used to enhance quality of cutting processes. All the parts may be held together by inner and outer retaining caps too.
