Home Plasma Cutting Plasma Cutting Plasma cutting is a process used to very quickly and precisely cut steel and other metals of different thicknesses. Plasma Cutting uses an inert gas blown at high speeds. An electrical arc is then created through and around the gas, forming plasma. This plasma is hot enough to cut the metal. We can provide plasma cutting services through our network. To find out if the store near you offers plasma cutting, call, email or visit one of our 100+ locations across North America.
