We use plasma consumables from Hypertherm, Thermal Dynamics, Kaliburn, Kjellberg and Lincoln Electric.
What Are Plasma Cutter Consumables?
The components that will wear and eventually need replacement in your system are called plasma cutter consumables. If it has a life cycle, it is considered a consumable. Your plasma consumables are components within the cutting torch. Maintaining the efficiency of your system and keeping it functional during operations will involve managing your plasma cutting consumables and understanding their life cycles. Having a ready supply of plasma consumables will ensure minimal downtime of your cutting tables. Some of the more common consumables include:
- Swirl Ring
- Retaining Cap
- Shield Cap
Prolonging Your Plasma Cutting Consumables
When it comes to plasma consumables, routine maintenance is the best way to prevent early termination of their life cycle. Here are three important ways to prolong the life of your plasma cutting consumables:
1. Control Parameters
Excess wear of your plasma consumables can occur if your system is cutting too slowly, too quickly or at an improper distance between the torch and the material. Having the proper setup will keep your parts in good health.
2. Proper Installation
Installation of your plasma cutter consumables is paramount. Rapid burnout will occur if your parts have insufficient tolerances or if the assembly is installed improperly. Be sure to follow all instructions and use cases for your plasma consumables.
3. Interval Inspections
In an ideal world, all of your plasma cutter consumables would wear at the same rate. Unfortunately, this is rarely true. Nozzles and electrodes tend to wear out faster than your other plasma consumables. Checking your assembly regularly and replacing parts that are worn out will prevent them from wearing out the rest of your plasma consumables prematurely.
