ABSTRACT
The article discusses the benefits of using high definition autogas plasma cutting system with enhanced torch design in industrial application. It states that high definition plasma cutting technology can produce better bevels in tolerances of 0.5 to 2.5 degrees with the machine's ability to control taper angle of the plasma arc. It indicates that the systems offer up to 400 amps using oxygen and air when cutting mild steel.
