ABSTRACT
This article discusses the evolution of plasma cutting. It was invented in the mid-1950s by the patent holder who had discovered that sending a high-velocity jet of superheated gas through a constricted opening, ionized gas or plasma is created that can melt metal. Manufacturers and fabricators did not generally accept plasma cutting until the mid-1970s. High-precision plasma cutting became available in the 1990s.
