Plate processing, also known as oxy cutting, is a process used to cut metals using a chemical reaction at high temperatures. In order to achieve this, a torch is used to heat the material to the required temperature, and a jet of pure oxygen is directed at the heated section. This causes a chemical reaction which cuts the metal. This process can be very useful for cutting thick pieces of metal. It is important to consider the material that is being used. The melting point of the oxide that is formed must be lower than the melting point of the material being cut, or the process will not work. Plate processing works best for steel.
Plasma cutting is a good alternative to plate processing because it works on materials that plate processing cannot be used for, such as stainless steel and aluminum. While plate processing can be great for burning through thick materials, plasma cutting is more precise and works well for very thin materials. The process is done by forcing plasma gas through a nozzle which constricts it. The gas condenses and is quickly expelled to a conductive surface. When it hits that surface, the plasma is able to cut right through it. Plasma cutting is ideal for cutting mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.
