A plasma torch is a device used in plasma cutting, which creates a high-temperature plasma arc that can cut through electrically conductive materials. The plasma arc is created by ionizing a gas and accelerating it through a nozzle to create a high-velocity stream of plasma.
A plasma torch can be used to cut a wide range of materials, including mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, and titanium. The quality of the cut will depend on the thickness and composition of the material being cut.
A plasma torch typically consists of a power supply, a plasma electrode, a swirl ring, a nozzle, and a gas supply. The power supply provides the electrical energy to ionize the gas and create the plasma arc, while the other components help to direct and stabilize the plasma arc.
