What’s a Cheap Plasma Cutter?


While searching for a cheap plasma cutter that suits your business or hobby interest you’ll obviously run across a wide array of companies, prices and options. Just because its cheap doesn’t mean it won’t work well. It just takes some time to research. You will find a plasma cutter ideal for the typical weekend hobbyist, much cheaper, and a distinct line of cutters between 50 and 100 amps at a reasonable price.

It is important to note high quality plasma cutting systems will have fully welded, heavy-duty, solid “unitized” construction. This means they offer stable and solid platform enabling repeatable and accurate plasma cutting.  On the other hand cheap plasma cutters will cost you later and more than you think in many cases.  I unfortunately would not recommend a plasma from companies like IEHK Enterprises out of Hong Kong.   Issues abound from start to finish typically.  You can check out a thread here as confirmation.   The old addage is, “If it sounds too good to be true – it probably.  This is very true with buying plasma direct from many China suppliers out there.”   Check out this buying experience: http://weldingweb.com/showthread.php?37885-Chinese-plasma-cutter-problem.

“If it sounds too good to be true – it probably is.  This is very true with buying a plasma direct from many China suppliers out there.”

Cheap plasma cutter companies and manufacturers will offer a vast industrial plasma selection of cutting machines especially over seas. Quality overseas especially Chinese imports have greatly improved quality as in the past decade they have had to stay competitive to remain in the industry.  But, without any US company to intervene to maintain a consistent standard there’s no recommendation here to buy direct.  FDA can step in and not only confiscate a suppliers export for all types of reasons they can also fine the importer (you) and black list you should you import again.  It’s not worth the risk.  See BBB reviews here.

Plasma cutters are constructed and designed to withstand vast usage in construction and rugged industrial environments. Also, these affordable cutting and welding tools are perfect for those who would like to use them in home projects. Using a 50A 110/220vac dual voltage digital inverter 50A plasma cutter, a portable tool, is affordable than oxyacetylene once a number of finished cuts have been made. Such a cutter requires less cleaning and minimal maintenance while releasing limited noxious gases nor is it a fire hazard, yet leads to a cleaner and better cut.

An affordable cheap plasma cutter has a torch trigger easily geared for custom fitting relative to your personal thumb and finger positions. The torch head has a low kind of profile ideal for use in tight spaces. For high frequency types of DC plasma cutters, they cut some of the thickest materials than the typical DC plasma cutter. Choosing the higher frequency one might be a little expensive but cuts much faster and produces less distortion in the overall work.

The Plasma cutter is intended and created to cut metals like aluminum and stainless steel. The tools make the most of the most top-notch techniques in cutting metals accurately as might be required. Using such tools, heavy and tough metals are easily sliced in an effortless way in the shortest period of time.

The main thing when it comes to cheap plasma cutter is the variety of models provided to suit the needs of different individuals. For instance the typical home hobbyist looking for a tool to fabricate parts leisurely over the weekend needs an affordable tool. A serious and busy fabrication shop looking will look a heavy duty plasma cutter to use every day in heavy industrial applications requiring 80amp power or perhaps 100amp 3 phase plasma cutter.

Greater cutting needs might not be furnished wholly by a cheap plasma cutter. In some cases, a plasma cutter low in cost might not offer a quality cut or a long service over a period of time. Always make sure the cutter does not only work as advertised but lasts for a longer time as promised under heavy production workloads.

In case of a CNC type plasma cutter, the body and parts should guarantee years of continued and quality service towards maximizing return on your investment. Always choose a cutting system with well built, open market components in terms of quality and built to offer tough and yet stable cutting performance.  As an alternative metal cutting solution check out fiber laser cutters as well:   https://www.bosslaser.com/boss-dne-1530.html
