Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut steel and other metals of different thicknesses (sometimes other materials are cut) with a plasma torch.In this process, an inert gas is blown at high speed from a nozzle, at the same time an electric arc that is formed through the nozzle makes it possible to gas to pass it to the fourth State of matter, plasma, which achieves cutting the metal.


.The equipment needed to provide this energy consists of a high frequency generator powered electricity, gas to generate flame (argon, hydrogen, nitrogen), heating and an electrode holder electrode that depending on the gas can be tungsten, hafnium or zirconium.
