Importance of High Quality Plasma Cutter

Cutting Metal with Plasma Table

A plasma CNC cutting system is not just one thing, it is the sum of its parts that make a CNC plasma cutting system what it is.  Automatic torch height control is great, but if it is attached to a low quality table, it is not very appealing.  At Tactical CNC, we utilize only the highest quality materials to construct our tables and we do this to ensure that they are long lasting, capable of standing frequent use over long periods of time.  In addition to high quality and durable parts, we partner with other exceptional manufacturers such as Hypertherm and Victor Thermal Dynamics, to bring the best comprehensive cutting system to our clients.  At Tactical CNC, we are an OEM (original equipment manufacturer with both of these great brands and when you invest in one of our systems, you invest in some of the best plasma cutting torches available on the market.

We carry a vast selection of plasma cutters with unique specifications so it is important to review your options carefully and choose a plasma cutter that is capable of handling your unique needs.  One consideration when choosing – material thickness.  Various plasma cutters have different abilities to handle material thickness so, before investing, consider how thick the material is that you tend to cut.  Depending on the thickness of material, our Tactical CNC staff will assist you on what best meets your requirements for cutting thickness and whether it should be a conventional air plasma or a mixed gas system.
