METAL PLASMA CUTTING
CUSTOM CUT METAL SHEETS, SHAPES, SIGNS & PIECES
At H.S. White, we can custom cut metal in a variety of metal alloys including stainless steel, carbon steel and aluminum. Whether it be a simple quote or a complex project, we’ll get the job done right. We can cut virtually any shape or size from squares and rectangles to circles and rings, quickly and economically. No job is too big or too small, we cut it all!
Plasma cutting enables us to quickly and precisely cut steel and other metals of various thicknesses. Typical materials cut with a plasma torch include alloy steel, stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum, brass and copper.
We are capable of cutting stainless steel and aluminum materials up to 3/4″ thick and carbon steel materials up to 3″ thick.
Plasma cutting uses an inert gas blown at high speeds and at temperatures above 20,000°C (36,032°F). An electrical arc is then created through and around the gas, forming plasma. This plasma is hot enough to cut the metal. Plasma gases are usually argon, argon/hydrogen or nitrogen. These inert gases can be replaced by air but this requires a special electrode of hafnium or zirconium.
