Discover the Industry Advantages of Plasma Cutting Tables
A plasma cutting table is an excellent tool for the efficient and precise cutting of heavyweight and thick metal materials. When you purchase a CNC cutting table for your applications, you'll have the option to choose a water cutting table or a downdraft table to go along with it. With all plasma cutting tables, it's essential to have either built-in or additional industrial dust collectors to control the dust and fumes created by the cutting process. Before choosing which table is right for you, take a look at some of the advantages using a plasma cutter table can offer:
- Versatility: CNC plasma cutting tables can be used on a wide variety of metal materials in a range of thicknesses.
- Speed & Precision: Plasma cutter tables will give you exact cuts regardless of the sheet metal's size, shape or angle. They are also significantly faster than traditional torches and cutting by hand.
- Cost-Effectiveness: CNC plasma cutting tables do a great job of making the most out of your sheets and reducing as much waste as possible. And, because a plasma CNC table makes your processes more efficient and effective, you minimize the need for unnecessary labor.
Thermal cutting applications, both plasma and laser, can generate significant fumes and particulate matter levels that can put operators at risk. A dust collector will be frequently integrated into laser and plasma cutting tables to help reduce operator exposure and protect the machinery. Industrial dust collectors are designed for indoor use and utilize a simple filter system for worker safety.
Water cutting tables, also called water burn tables, are made up of replaceable slats of steel supported on each edge of a tank filled with water. The material surface, typically located below the waterline, filters out smoke, dust and fumes that accumulate during the burning process. Overall, water cutting tables are very efficient methods of controlling the byproducts produced by plasma cutting. Some of the benefits they offer include:
Downdraft burn tables are similar to water cutting tables. Rather than being filled with water, the table is exhausted by high-capacity fans. These fans pull smoke and fumes caused by the cutting process into the tank and duct them out to a dust collector. Some benefits of downdraft burn tables include:
