Generally, laser and waterjet excel at this type of cut; however, high definition plasma isn’t far behind. It’s also possible to achieve fine feature cuts with air plasma through the use of Hypertherm FineCut® consumables, which are available for both hand and machine-mounted air plasma torches. FineCut consumables produce a narrower kerf with a stiffer arc that is ideal for cutting thinner (3/16″ and lower) material at 40 amps and below.

Examples of applications requiring fine feature cutting:

  • Cutting thinner material
  • Cutting material with a lot of detail
  • Cutting intricate shapes
  • Cutting material in which very tight tolerances are required
