shaping-manufacturing-processes > Tube & Section Plasma Cutting
This process involves the cutting of pipe, tube or section utilising a concentrated Plasma Beam - a rotational axis allows access to all sides of the tube or section in one process cycle (as the Pipe, tube or section is rotated)
Machines are multi-axis, allowing the creation of fish mouths, mitre cuts and other tags and complex forms. This process also includes those machines with tilting heads to perform angular cuts to the section surface, for example for weld preparation, or flush fitting with other profiles.
All forms of shielding gas and plasma arc generation are covered by this process category. However, more typically gas shielded, and High Definition Plasma Arc Cutting are used in this application.
