Steel service centers

Hypertherm is routinely named the number one cutting brand among steel service center executives. Why? The companies they operate are often called upon to cut a wide range of materials and thicknesses with varying levels of accuracy and cost. Some components are simply cut and delivered, while others require secondary levels of fabrication including assembly, welding, and even painting. A high-productivity alternative to oxyfuel, saws, or shears, Hypertherm systems ensure consistent, clean cut quality and precise edges – all of which are important to efficiency and profitability.

Gouging

Plasma gouging – removing metal using a plasma arc – is similar to plasma cutting. A plasma arc between the torch and the workpiece melts the metal, and a gas jet blows away the molten material.

Marking

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.
