A CNC plasma cutter is a metal cutting machine tool with CNC (Computer Numerical Control) that adopts plasma torch to cut different metals to different shapes and profiles, such as steel, aluminium, copper, brass, iron, galvanized sheet, etc. A CNC plasma cutter is composed of CNC controller, plasma torch, plasma power, blade plasma table or sawtooth plasma table, motor, driver, CNC plasma software, CNC operating system, ball screw, guide rail, machine frame, optional parts and consumble parts. CNC plasma cutter is also known as computer numerical controlled plasma cutter, computer-controlled plasma cutter, C ad C plasma cutter, CNC plasma table, plasma cutting table, CNC plasma machine, plasma cutting machine, CNC plasma cutting machine, CNC plasma cutting table, CNC plasma cutting system, CNC plasma cutting equipment. The most common CNC plasma tables include 4x4 CNC plasma table, 4x8 CNC plasma table and 5x10 CNC plasma table.
Plasma cutting is a machining method that uses the heat of a high-temperature plasma arc to melt at a metal workpiece, and to eliminate the molten metal by high-speed plasma momentum to create a slit. Plasma cutters send an electric arc by using gas like oxygen, nitrogen or compressed air. This turns the gas to plasma, as well as it promptly blasts through metal to cut it with broadband. A flame cutting torch works by adding a blast of oxygen to the flame which oxidizes the metal and turns it into slag. The plasma torch moves with a tool path directed by a computer. The term "CNC" means "Computer Numerical Control", which implies that a computer is used to control the plasma cutter motion supported G-code in a program. Compared to handheld plasma cutters, CNC plasma cutters realize automatic machining with high efficiency, high speed, and high quality.
Plasma cutters are used for cutting sheet metals, square and round metal tubes, including iron, cold rolled steel, hot rolled steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel, carbon steel, copper, brass, alloy, bronze, aluminum, titanium. Plasma cutting machines are widely used in the industries of machine tool manufacturing, petro-chemical equipment, light-industrial machinery, pressure vessel, shipbuilding, mining machinery, electric power, bridge construction, aerospace, steel structure, etc. Plasma cutters can be applied to hobbyists, home shop, home business, small shop, small business, school education, industrial manufacturing.

1. Manual Non-Contact Cutting.
a.Touch the torch roller to the workpiece, and adjust the distance between the nozzle and the plane of the workpiece to 3 ~ 5mm. (When the host machine cuts, the "Cut Thickness Selection" switch is upscale).
b. Turn on the torch switch to ignite the plasma arc. After cutting through the workpiece, move to the cutting direction at an even speed. The cutting speed is based on the premise of cutting through. Too slow will affect the quality of the incision and even break the arc.
c. After cutting, turn off the cutting torch switch and the plasma arc goes out. At this time, compressed air is sprayed out at a delay to cool the cutting torch. After a few seconds, the ejection stops automatically. Remove the cutting torch to complete the entire cutting process.
2. Manual Contact Cutting.
a. The "Cut Thickness Selection" switch is at the low level, and it is used when cutting thinner plates by a single machine.
b. Place the cutting torch nozzle at the starting point of the workpiece to be cut, turn on the cutting torch switch, ignite the plasma arc, cut through the workpiece, and then move uniformly along the cutting direction.
c. After cutting, open and close the torch switch. At this time, the compressed air is still spraying out. After a few seconds, the spraying will stop automatically. Remove the cutting torch to complete the entire cutting process.
3. Automatic Cutting.
a. Automatic cutting is mainly suitable for cutting thick workpieces. Select the "Cut Thickness Selection" switch position.
b. After removing the cutting torch roller, the cutting torch and the semi-automatic cutting machine are firmly connected, and the attachment is provided in the random accessories.
c. Connect the power of the semi-automatic cutting machine, and install the guide rail or radius rod according to the shape of the workpiece (if it is a straight-line cutting rail, if you cut a circle or arc, you should choose a radius rod).
d. If the torch switch plug is turned off, replace the remote switch plug (prepared in the accessories).
e. Adjust the appropriate walking speed according to the thickness of the workpiece. And set the "up" and "down" switches on the semi-automatic cutting machine to the cutting direction.
f. Adjust the distance between the nozzle and the workpiece to 3 ~ 8mm, and adjust the center position of the nozzle to the starting strip of the workpiece slit.
g. Turn on the remote control switch. After cutting through the workpiece, turn on the power switch of the semi-automatic cutting machine to cut. In the initial stage of cutting, pay attention to the cutting seam at any time and adjust to a suitable cutting speed. And pay attention to whether the two machines work normally at any time.
h. After cutting, turn off the remote control switch and the power switch of the semi-automatic cutting machine. At this point, the entire cutting process is completed.
4.Manual Cutting Circle.
According to the material and thickness of the workpiece, choose the single or parallel cutting method, and choose the corresponding cutting method. Tighten the cross bar in the random attachment to the screw hole on the torch holder. To the required radius and tighten, then adjust the distance from the tip to the torch nozzle according to the length of the workpiece radius (the width of the slit must be considered). After adjustment, tighten the center fastening screws to prevent loosening, and loosen the cage to tighten the knurled screws. At this point, you can cut the workpiece.
As a plasma cutter operator, you should follow the 15 most common safety rules.

1. Ensure the Correct Pressure and Flow of the Plasma.
The correct pressure and flow of the plasma is important to the life of the consumable. If the air pressure is too high, the life of the electrode will be greatly reduced; if the air pressure is too low, the life of the nozzle will be affected. Refer to the instruction manual of the plasma cutter when setting.
2. Use a Reasonable Tangent.
The tangent distance is the distance between the cutting nozzle and the surface of the workpiece. This distance should be kept as constant as possible, usually about 3-8mm. The life is reduced; if it is too close, it is simpler, and the nozzle is very expensive. The service life of the nozzle will be doubled, and it will even be burned out when it is installed. The maximum height that can be passed.
3. The Thickness of the Perforation and Cutting Should be Within the Allowable Range of the Plasma Cutting System.
Baoding plasma cutting machine can't perforate on the steel plate which exceeds the working thickness. The usual perforation thickness is 1/2 of the normal cutting thickness. Try to cut within the range of the normal cutting thickness rated by the plasma cutting machine, try not to cut on the limit cutting thickness, the normal cutting thickness of domestic cutting machine is generally 60% of the maximum cutting thickness marked by the manufacturer, try to cut within this thickness range , The best protection of the cutting mouth.
4. Do not Overload the Nozzle.
Overloading the nozzle (that is, exceeding the working current of the nozzle) will quickly damage the nozzle. The current intensity should be 95% of the working current of the nozzle. For example: the current intensity of a 100A nozzle should be set to 95A.
5. Keep the Plasma Gas Dry and Clean.
Plasma cutting systems require dry and clean plasma gas to function properly. Dirty gas is usually a problem with gas compression systems, which can shorten the life of consumables and cause abnormal damage. The method of testing the gas quality is to set the cutting torch in a test state, and put a mirror under it to consume the gas in the cutting torch. If water vapor and mist appear on the mirror, you need to find out the reason.

I bought this unit for use in the shop I am at, I am an automotive technician and this just makes life easier. I use it in place of traditional oxy/acetylene torches. The 4x4 plasma table cuts way faster, uses way less consumables. Works great for my purposes. This 4x4 plasma cutter also makes very nice cuts in thick steel. I have used it to cut 3/16th plate steel and its like a knife through butter, easy to use and decent build quality for the price.
This is probably the best deal on a solid plasma cutter you are going to get. I bought my unit a bit over 1 years ago. While it's just for hobby use it sees a lot of work. Can't speak on how it runs on 110v as I've only ever run the unit on 220v. That being said I've used this to cut everything from sheet metal to 250 steel plate and everything in between. Aluminum diamond plate laid over sheet steel. I cut 250 steel plate with it to build some axle gussets, and I was surprise what it would cut. Well worth the money.
Nice Hypertherm plasma cutter, I had cut out over 180 pieces of 12mm steel plate, worked well. I would definitely recommend. I cut clean as well, I am impressed by the cut quality and function. The 5x10 plasma table has important features of much more expensive machines.
Dear sir i am looking at setting up a metal cutting factory in Adelaide south australia and would like a price on 4 of the STP1530 with 105 amp and one of them with the rotary device attached to it, could i please get a price for the 4 unit and the shipping to south australia thanks
I couldn't believe how cheap this plasma cutter was when I bought it, and now I can't believe how great it works. Now I'm making more money than ever on my past time hobby for ornamental iron and steel designs. I'm constantly looking for new ideas and drawing them on CAD for this plasma machine. I cut a brake blades in my workshop. I utilize it for hobbyists yet I would not hesitate to take it into an extra industrial manufacturing, plug it in and also go to benefit the day.
