KEY TERMS IN CNC PLASMA
What does "blow-
AC: An electrical current that reverses its direction at regular intervals, such as 60 cycles alternating current (AC), or 60 hertz.
Angularity: The measurement of the plasma cut angle. For air plasma 1to 3% is normal.
Boost Conditioner™ circuit: Hypertherm technology that compensates for input voltage variations.
CNC: Computer Numeric Control
CAM: Computer Aided Manufacturing
Lag lines: Grooves in the cut surface that are the result of the plasma arc.
Dross: The molten waste material created by thermal cutting processes that often solidifies on the top or bottom of the plate. Also called slag, dross is produced in different amounts and can be easier or harder to remove depending on the cutting process that created it.
G Code: which has many variants, is the common name for the most widely used numerical control (NC) programming language. It is used mainly in computer-
ETR™ (Easy Torch Removal): A unique connector design that provides easy switching between hand and machine torches.
FineCut™: A line of Hypertherm consumables that deliver significant improvements in cut quality on thin-
HyLife® Electrodes: that last longer than ordinary designs by using the same patented technologies developed for advanced Hypertherm mechanized systems.
Kerf: The width of a cut made by the plasma arc.
Plasma: Plasma, sometimes called the fourth state of matter, is a high-
Plasma cutting: Process in which electrically conductive gas is harnessed and controlled. A torch holds consumable parts, which constrict and control the ionized gas stream or plasma arc for cutting most common metals.
Plasma Torch Parts:
SCFH: Standard Cubic feet per hour
SCFM: Standard Cubit feet per minute
