Laser tolerances: Engineers may specify them, but if not really needed, they are costing you money.

Plasma tolerance myth busted One of the advantages of a focused beam of light is that it can cut to extremely tight tolerances. There is less variability in the process. Generally, a laser can hold cut part dimensional tolerances of under 0.01″ (0.25 mm).* Plasma on the other hand, uses a gas energized to the point of ionization to create …

Plasma accuracy & edge quality

What kind of accuracy and edge quality to expect from plasma This question is not a simple one… As a general rule, accuracy will vary based on the capabilities of the plasma system and how it is set-up. For instance, the accuracy of a hand-held plasma system will be different than the accuracy of a plasma mounted on a CNC …
