Can You Cut Stainless Steel With A CNC Plasma Cutter?

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


I was asked to cut parts out of stainless steel – my first time doing this with my cnc plasma cutter. I didn’t design them – my job was just to cut them out and then clean them up.

The plasma-cutter is by R-Tech

and the combined cnc machine is by Xtreme Plasma

I almost lost a finger clamping my angle grinder into a vice like that using a wire wheel. Wheel grabbed the steel and slammed my finger into the wheel.. Not nice I can tell you.

U need to use argon instead compressed air if you want to get rid of sugaring

Trevor Marron says:

If you turn the pressure up on the plasma cutter will it not blow the slag off better?

Often times, stainless steel has Chromium, Molybdenum, and Titanium added to it which gives it the stainless/rustless properties…. maybe this is what causes or partly causes all or some of the burrs on the backside where the cnc blew out the metal

The Finish guys from Beyond The Press channel released a vid showing grinding disc failure.
Just mentioning…
Thanks for your interesting vids.

It's a nice smooth cutting line on that machine. I would be laboriously trying to use a jigsaw with a hacksaw blade!! How do you direct the cutting motion?? By computer?? Or are you working on a template that transfers to your sheet of SS?? The letters look great. Had to laugh, did the studio ask you "Oh, just come up with a catchy phrase and we'll put it on the sign"??

Dear Sandra if you end up reading this comment which I hope you do there is a pony charity called putting in the magic that is in with a possibility of being kicked of the land they use to rehabilitate the ponies on. and the lady who runs it is in need of ideas how to raise money any bright ideas maybe? they would be really appreciated if not that's ok I just thought seen as how you were able to get money for your hairy Henry project you might have some suggestions
