"Single Flow Plasma to Make Way for Duel Flow Plasma Cutting Machines During the Forecast"

At present single flow plasma cutting machines dominate the global market in terms of market value. The system uses only a single gas, generally air or nitrogen to produce and cools down the plasma. The process lacks presence of another gas which can be used as a shielding gas to protect nozzle from molten metal often leading to short nozzle life. However, the technology is rapidly being replaced by duel flow plasma nozzles owing to greater accuracy and long operational life. Duel flow plasma cutting machines are being incorporated rapidly across several industry verticals and are soon expected to take over conventional single flow plasma in next few years.

"CNC Plasma Cutting Machines Creating Positive Impact on Production Rate and Product Quality"

On the basis of control, plasma cutting machines are broadly classified into manual and CNC plasma cutting machines. Manual plasma cutting machines including permanent and bench machines required a skilled human operator to direct the plasma nozzle to desired locations. Dealing with extreme temperature and accurately directing the nozzle is a tedious task and often lead to inaccuracies in final products such as tapered holes and imperfect straight cuts. Moreover, introduction of computerized numerical control (CNC) plasma cutting machines completely transformed the scenario in non-conventional machining. CNC plasma cutting machines are capable of producing accurate cuts and hole and can be extensively used for drag cutting with minimum requirements for product finishing. Owing to the aforementioned merits CNC plasma cutting machines dominated the overall plasma cutting machines market in terms of market value and expected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Manual plasma cutting machines projected to grow with a sluggish growth rate owing to its limited application in small workshops and portable applications.
