Laser cutting and Plasma cutting are two of the more popular processes for cutting metals. Though this is the case, there are many factors used to determine which process is better with consideration of specifications and overall project needs.
Plasma uses a high-temperature electrically-conducive gas to cut through any material that is electrically conductive. Suitable for both ferrous and non-ferrous material, Plasma can cut metal that is in a variety of conditions (rusted, painted, grated), and cuts greater thicknesses. At AccuBurn, our Plasma work table measures 25′ x 25′ with a high-capacity lifting equipment giving us the ability to create large-scale work pieces weighing up to 15 tons.

Laser cutting uses a high power laser beam to heat and then partially melt and vaporize the material. Suitable for all types of metal, for laser cutting effectiveness, the material does need to be free of rust (in good condition). Typically, laser is used for thin material. At AccuBurn, our laser cutting equipment provides 400-4500 W of output power to create clean, burr-free cuts in materials up to .625″ thick. Additionally, we are able to cut accurate and repeatable laser cutting of acrylic and PTFE components while holding a ± 0.007 tolerance.
