A Plasma Cutter is used to cut metals and other materials. An inert gas or compressed air is exposed to an electrical arc and blown at high speed from a nozzle. Some of the gas ionizes to plasma form, which has a temperature high enough to melt metal. The plasma stream moves quickly enough to blow molten metal away from the points it is melting, creating cuts in material. See how a plasma cutter works.
The Plasma Cutter is currently in the Research Phase of product development
