Cutting techniques have improved over time, and now the methods being used are not the traditional ones. For fine cutting, laser cutting is the current, preferred method. Laser cutting follows the same type of method as plasma cutting, but laser cutting is generally preferred. Plasma cutting uses high temperatures to cut through materials. Laser cutting uses a high-powered laser beam in order to cut through the material. Laser cutters are currently being used in all types of settings, including schools and construction sites.
- Plasma cutting uses a high temperature jet of ionized gases; laser cutting uses a high power laser beam.
- Plasma cutting machines are portable and popular in industry, while laser cutters work with many materials and produce little waste.
- Plasma machines have lower initial costs, but do not cut as cleanly and release harmful gasses.
