We’re always looking for new ways to serve our customers and offer new services. We’re excited to announce the recent acquisition of a new piece of equipment that can open up a lot of opportunities to provide services for our customers! Keep reading more about our new equipment, a CNC plasma cutting table, and how it allows expanded services to be offered to those in need of specialty welding.

What’s a CNC plasma cutting table?

A CNC plasma system is a machine that carries a plasma torch and can move that torch in a path directed by a computer. The term “CNC” means “Computer Numerical Control”; a computer is used to direct the machine’s motion based on numerical codes in a program. A plasma cutting torch is a typically used tool for cutting metals for a wide variety of purposes. A hand-held plasma torch is an excellent tool for quickly cutting through sheet metal, metal plates, straps, bolts, pipes, etc. They also make an exceptional gouging tool for back-gouging weld joints or removing defective welds. A hand torch can be used for cutting small shapes from steel plate, but it’s impossible to get good enough part accuracy or edge quality for most metal fabrication. That is why a CNC plasma table is an exciting addition for us!

What will Affordable Custom Welding be able to offer now?

With the addition of this new piece of equipment, we’ll be able to accurately fabricate a high number of machine parts. We get asked about part production often and having a piece of equipment like this will make it a lot more efficient. This new machine will be able to put out hundreds of small machine parts in a short amount of time. That’s pretty amazing!

Of course, we’ll continue to offer our other custom welding services as well, including mobile welding for onsite projects like residential welding services and automotive welding services, but now we’ll be able to expand our services even further to assist those companies in need of part production. Exciting stuff!
