Hole cutting

Many jobs require the addition of holes to bolt two or more pieces or parts together, so hole production is an important part of most cutting operations.

Marking metal to indicate bend or score lines, inventory numbers, or reference points for drilling or robotic processes is traditionally done with a hammer and punch, powder or ink, soapstone, or handheld engraving machines. Using plasma for marking during CNC processes offers many significant advantages.
