Eldred Sheet Metal Works



Plasma Cutting

Eldred Sheet Metal Works, LLC offers a Hyper-therm High Definition CNC plasma cutting services with True Hole Technology. Eldred can plasma cut your parts in 22 Ga. (.030 inch) material up to 2 1/2 inch thick material in carbon steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, and other various alloys.

Plasma cutting is the process of using an inert gas forced at high speed through a nozzle. An electrical arc is actuated in the gas to create a plasma flow that is hot enough to melt metal and forceful enough to remove the metal from the cut area. Plasma cutting can be performed above and below the water’s surface. Eldred can plasma cut any flat layout pattern. Eldred operates a 120” X 240” High-Definition CNC Plasma Cutting Table with water as well as a hand held plasma machine for manual cutting.

The plasma cutting process starts with the customer’s drawing or specifications. Eldred takes those drawings or specifications and converts those to an electronic DXF file. The programmer programs the drawings and sends the electronic DXF file to the CNC plasma cutting machine. The plasma cutting operator downloads the DXF File for cutting, squares the material and torch head, and runs the program. The torch head follows the desired program path providing a clean smooth cut. Our software program allows us to nest parts of all shapes and sizes on a single sheet to increase productivity and reduce cost. Eldred can handle large runs or just a single piece to be cut.
