MORE ABOUT PLASMA CUTTING

Hypertherm's insistence on continuous product development, technical back up and training for sales and service staff alike, means Hypertherm are an extremely potent business partner.

From the Powermax range of machines to the high end mechanised models, they have the world of plasma cutting at their feet.

Our Hypertherm consumable range covers every Powermax plasma cutting spare requirement- be sure to buy the genuine article as accurancy of cut & longevity of the consumables are important cost factors. In recent times, Hypertherm introduced Consumable kits as an added value product- they offer economies of scale, the ability to cut at different amperages and disciplined storage.

We have always sold & supported CNC plasma cutters and in 2016 we agreed a partnership with Dutch manufacturer ACT Machinery to market & support their range of plasma cutting tables in the UK. 

Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut many different types of metal using a plasma torch. In this process compressed air is blown at high speed out of a nozzle; at the same time an electrical arc is formed through the air from the nozzle to the surface being cut turning some of that air to plasma. The plasma cutter is sufficiently hot to melt the metal being cut and moves sufficiently fast to blow molten metal away from the cut.

The main advantages of Plasma over older cutting methods such as Oxy/Fuel is it's quicker, cleaner, safer, requires no pre-heating, and it only uses compressed air which can be provided from an everyday workshop compressor. The metal being cut doesn't have to be clean as plasma will cut neatly through rust, mud and paint, plus it can also cut through multiple layers in one go.

At Foster Industrial we have the complete range of Hypertherm plasma cutters in stock. Whether you want to cut 5mm or 60mm, we have the machine to do the job, and you can now try before you buy in our live demonstration area.
