What kinds of materials can the machine cut?

Virtually any metal can be plasma cut including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper, etc. Any thickness from 30 gauge through 1 inch can be cut, depending on the plasma cutter used. The material used can be as large as 4ft wide by 20ft long. Plastics and wood are not electrically conductive and cannot be plasma cut. However, you can use a rotary saw, router, or other tool if you want to cut these materials in the PlasmaCAM machine.

The accuracy of the machine is better than that of the plasma cutter. When the machine is coupled with a plasma torch, part accuracies as high as ±0.005 inch can be achieved, depending on material and setup conditions. Cutting speed can range from 0.1 to 1000 inches per minute.
