Why A CNC Plasma Machine is the Ideal Tool for Precision and Accuracy

Cutting Metal with Plasma TableCNC plasma tables are the quintessential cutting tool for metal, brass, copper, steel, aluminum and more.  It is a tool that is so versatile that many people can benefit from having one including industrial construction businesses, automotive repair shops, salvage and scrapping businesses, metal artists, welding shops – the list goes on and on.  But, there are a lot of ways to cut and fabricate a variety of materials that do not include CNC plasma tables.  So, why are CNC plasma tables the best tool for the job?  Accuracy.  For anyone that wants the most accurate cuts the way to do so is with a CNC plasma cutter.

There are a few factors that contribute to a CNC plasma table’s ability to make such accurate cuts.  First, CNC plasma cutters use specialized software that works with CAD drawing and CAM cutting.  This software works directly with the table to allow anyone that uses the machine the ability to create literally anything they can dream of with their plasma cutting table.  The plasma torch cuts through metal with precision to provide laser-like cuts in a variety of materials.  Plasma torches use an electric arc with a compressed air discharge at the end of the cutting torch to precisely separate metal.  The accuracy heavily depends on the quality of gantry the CNC plasma table has.  Tactical CNC plasma cutters have a gantry that is made of heavy wall structurally engineered aluminum that keeps it rigid and the mounting faces are designed to be incredibly accurate and precise.  Additionally, to get the smoothest, most pristine cuts the motion pieces of the machine must be well-crafted.  Tactical CNC ensures this by mounting the rails and gear tracks on machine flattened surfaces.  By doing this, the motion of the machine is smooth, no friction is generated and the most accurate cuts are achieved.  The sophisticated software used is constantly being updated and feeding the most current information to the CNC plasma cutter and that information informs the torch and guides is so that even very small cuts can still be accurate and smooth.  When using this level of software, coupled with such  a high quality machine, it is possible to achieve consistent edges throughout all cuts in a project.  This means that better construction happens, better parts are made and more beautiful and sophisticated artwork brought to life.  It does not matter if you need to manufacture 1,000 pieces of a small automobile part or one large metal art piece for a home, a CNC plasma cutting table will get the job done quickly, easily and accurately.
