James Aiken Engineering’s high-definition plasma cutter is capable of meticulous cutting of mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminium up to 30mm thick. With a 3m x 1500 bed size, it is ideal for complex work where a high degree of accuracy is required.
Plasma cutters are widely used in sheet metal and fabrication, offering a fast and efficient method for cutting conductive materials like steel, aluminium, and copper. Utilising a high-velocity jet of ionized gas, or plasma, these machines can cut through metal with incredible precision and speed.
In addition, plasma cutters are generally faster than other cutting methods, especially for cutting thicker materials where they are often more cost-effective compared to other methods – indeed, they are capable of piercing, bevelling, and cutting in one operation, making them highly versatile.
Our plasma cutter is an excellent choice for quick, efficient, and cost-effective cutting of conductive materials, while our waterjet machine offers greater versatility and precision, especially for more complex or heat-sensitive materials.
James Aiken Engineering can advise on what cutting operation is best for your project with both plasma and waterjet capabilities in-house.
