Precision 3D Plasma Cutting Services: Advantages and Applications
3D plasma cutting is a state-of-the-art fabrication technology that offers a number of unique benefits to industrial parts manufacturers.
Compared to traditional metal cutting techniques, plasma cutting services are exceptionally fast, efficient, and accurate. The plasma jets operate in the neighborhood of 40,000° F – roughly four times hotter than the surface of the sun. This incredibly high-powered metal cutting tool is automated and carefully controlled via precision CNC systems to perform accurate metal cuts at 0.01” tolerances.
Alloy is a leading local contract manufacturer that offers this cutting-edge custom fabrication technology to the Reading, Pennsylvania area and greater Mid-Atlantic region.
How Are 3D Plasma Cutters Used in the Modern Manufacturing Realm?
Modern domestic contract manufacturers rely on the industry’s most capable and efficient metal cutting equipment. Our goal is to remain price-competitive while offering superior quality and consistency compared to our overseas competitors. This is especially important in the post-COVID-19 manufacturing landscape: more and more companies are onshoring their production back to America in order to avoid international supply chain disruptions.
So how do 3D plasma cutting services fit into that picture? As an example of the technology’s efficiency, Alloy’s plasma cutter system streamlines various metal marking, engraving, and precision cutting operations without interrupting or slowing down production. Because these processes are automated via custom CNC programming, plasma cutting services are the perfect compliment to our high-volume and “lights out” manufacturing capabilities.
An Overview of the Advantages of 3D Plasma Cutting Technology:
- Increased manufacturing accuracy, efficiency, and sustainability.
- Less post-processing and custom machining required.
- Minimized errors through CNC-based automation.
- Lower production costs – less labor and wasted material.
- Automated tool change allows for 24/7 “lights out” production.
