All plasma cutting systems are not created equal. So when you’re researching plasma cutting technology, machine features, and other factors that will influence the machine you choose, here are a few important aspects to consider.
Choosing the right machine can give you a variety of benefits that lead to greater efficiency, and higher profitability, in addition to simply cutting parts. So read on for three ways the right plasma cutting system can help your business!
This is an important consideration, because not all plasma cutting systems maintain similar tolerances. And tolerances over long cuts, and positioning over long spans, can mean the difference between parts fitting correctly—or not fitting correctly – during subsequent fit-up. Sometimes even small variances can mean the difference between spending time on re-work and continuing with your production process, so this makes accuracy critical.
If you produce parts using multiple processes in addition to cutting, such as drilling, tapping, and milling, having the ability to perform these processes in a single setup can save time and money. In addition to not having to take the time to move heavy workpieces from station to station, integrated drilling and milling can reduce or eliminate the need for fixturing. This means far greater speed and much higher productivity than when performing subsequent processes on separate machines.
A software interface can make or break a plasma cutting system, and when it comes to software, usability is key. This means its important to ensure whichever machine you choose has easy-to-use software that makes quick work of setting programs, nesting parts, and operating the machine. When all machine functionality is available at the operator’s fingertips, the machine can work productively day in and day out with minimal downtime.
