High-Def Plasma v. Laser Cutting

Carbon steel, stainless steel or aluminum.

Thick, thin – and everything in between.

No matter what type of material you need cut, Titan Metal Worx can deliver.

With both high-definition plasma cutting and laser cutting capabilities here at our 35,000-square-foot facility in New Haven, Ind., we can handle multiple cut variations within the context of a single job.

Our diverse range of equipment allows us to manage your project from start to finish, eliminating the need to outsource to multiple vendors. You can count on Titan’s skilled team of employees to handle all of your project needs on site, which ultimately translates to quicker turnaround and reduced production costs.

High-def plasma v. laser cutting – what’s the difference?

Put simply, both methods make it possible to cut carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum and other alloys.

When choosing the best option, the two chief factors that come into play are material thickness and accuracy. Our team will evaluate your project specs and employ the method that is best suited to your job. In some instances, we will opt to use a combination of cutting techniques to address material variations.

High-definition plasma cutting

For thicker materials, high-definition plasma cutting is the way to go.

Our Hypertherm HPR400XD high-definition plasma cutting system can pierce carbon steel up to 2 inches, and it can edge cut carbon steel up to 3 inches. Additionally, it can accommodate surface areas as large as 8 feet by 24 feet, with an effective tube cutting area that measures 2 feet by 20 feet.

Our system uses True Hole® technology, which eliminates hole taper and provides for increased consistency and overall product quality.

Laser cutting

For thinner-gauge materials, our 4 kilowatt Co2 laser produces incredibly accurate and clean results. Our laser can cut carbon steel up to 1-inch thick, stainless steel up to 3/8-inch thick and aluminum up to 3/8-inch thick.

With laser-sharp cutting capabilities, your 1-inch thick plate final product will maintain tolerances with .008 of an inch and thinner material as close as .002 of an inch.

Peak precision

Titan offers the latest in Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machinery, which means we use a series of precisely-programmed computer commands to control machine tools. This technology maintains an incredibly high level of accuracy, guaranteeing that we can produce your finished product completely on spec.
