5 steps to safer plasma cutting
Chris Teoh , Global Product Manager – Welding & Tools Solution
Plasma cutting is economical, safe, efficient and can be an effective backup cutting and gouging tool when oxy-acetylene gas cylinder supplies are difficult to obtain. But despite its merits, like most tools, let alone one that works at 20,000°C, it is vital to have a clear understanding of the equipment and how to operate it safely. Here’s our recommended five steps for safer plasma cutting.
Install an Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker (ELCB) at the main power supply
Read and understand the operation manual before use
Use appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Conduct a job safety analysis and get a permit
Regular or periodic maintenance
