Different and High-Class Models of CNC Plasma Cutter

Do you want to cut any metal smoothly and precisely? CNC plasma cutter is the better cutting equipment for you. You can cut mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper plates easily and smoothly with CNC plasma cutter. Plasma cutter is cheap and better than oxyfuel cutter. But CNC plasma cutter is a lot more than a regular plasma cutter. Today I’m going to tell you details about CNC plasma cutter and the top 3 CNC plasma cutter in the market.

What is CNC plasma cutter?​

It is not so easy to cut a big metal sheet manually with hands. You can cut it easily with CNC plasma cutter.CNC means, “Computer numeric control”. If you want to cut any sheet with this machine, put the sheet on the table. Above the table, there is a torch which is hooked on moveable arms. The arms can move horizontally and vertically. A plasma cutting computer, actually the plasma cutting base station is attached with the table. The computer is equipped with appropriate software. You need to instruct the computer about the ways and thickness to cut the sheet. You can cut a sheet to multiple pieces according to your required length, width, thickness easily with this cutter. For this reason, CNC plasma cutter is the best metal cutter in the market.

Modern CNC plasma cutters can be used for 3 axis cutting. Modern CNC plasma cutters do not cut the metals only. They can monitor their health. They can monitor temperature, slag amount etc. They can cool the worktable and metal sheet by throwing and draining water and flowing cold smoke.​

Best CNC plasma cutter in the market​

There are many companies who is manufacturing CNC plasma cutter in the market. In this article, I’m going to tell you about the best 3 high tech and updated plasma cutter in the market. They are PM1000, PM2000, and PM4000. You’ll need to add a suitable work table to complete​

PM 1000 CNC plasma cutter:

  • This machine is highly powerful but it is suitable for sheets which are thick less or equal to 25 mm. It can’t cut sheet above 25 mm thick. It can cut mild steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminum, brass and many more. But it can perfectly cut 16 mm sheets with smooth edges.
  • This machine needs 3 phase electric power to work. This cutter provides strong plasma arc which can cut steels of a great thickness and the plasma arc is powered by Full bridge IGBT inverter module. This machine provides air cooling for cooling the sheets and table after plasma work.
  • To cut sheets with good quality, you must need suitable work tables on which you put the sheets for cutting. Compatible work table with this model are PM100A1313H, PM100A50150H, PM100A1325H, PM100A1632H etc.

PM 2000 CNC plasma cutter:

  • It is a bit more powerful and higher than the previous machine. It can cut maximum 35 mm thin metal. And its maximum smooth cutting thickness is 28 mm. So, if you want to cut sheets without any slag, use sheets which are thick less than 28 mm. Like any other plasma machine, this model needs 3 phase electric power to work. And it works at the current level of 40-180 amps. This model creates high temperature during operation and it uses water cooling method for cooling after plasma work.
  • The compatible work table with this model are PM200A1313H, PM200A1325H, PM200A1632H, PM200A50150H etc.

PM 4000 CNC plasma cutter:

  • This is the most powerful and massive machine above all of the models. It is perfect for industrial use. It can cut any kind of metal like brass, copper, mild steel, stainless steel and many more. Its maximum separation thickness is 65 mm and maximum smooth cutting thickness is up to 40 mm. That means it can cut most of the heavy metals smoothly and precisely.
  • Like the others, it needs 3 phase electrical power to work and adjustable with the current level of 110 amps.This machine creates huge temperature during operation and it needs to flow water for cooling the sheets.
  • The most compatible tables with this model are PM400A1313H, PM400A1325H, PM400A1632H, PM400A50150H etc.
  • I give a short description of all three models in the table below. This may help you to compare among those three models
