Compressed air is essential for plasma cutting. KTC compressors are widely used in this field of application because they represent an effective solution for fast cuts on fine or very thick surfaces without compromising the conductor material: from steel (including stainless steel and galvanized steel), aluminum, copper and brass.
This method embodies the natural technological evolution of traditional plasma jet welding. Plasma cutting transforms the injected air into plasma, it transfers heat to the metal that needs to be cut until it reaches fusion temperature and it finally allows a sharp cut.
Plasma blowers for cutting are a professional solution that enables the use of a high frequency transformer, very compact and light instead of a traditional heavy net frequency transformer. They normally require over 2 kW and can be powered by inverter machines, like KLE PLUS.
