Plasma Cutting

High-Definition plasma cutting is an accurate and cost-effective method of processing thick and large format high-alloy, aluminium and mild steel plate. The technology uses a jet of heated gas to cut through steel materials achieving accurate tolerances (+/-2mm) in materials of up to 80mm.

Plasma cutting is not limited to only flat cutting. By using jigs and other methods, products such as pre-formed items, RHS or SHS can be plasma cut.

Bevelling, drilling, tapping, counter sinking, and edge-milling are additional processes that can be offered using this technology. This enables a high degree of accuracy when processing large-format heavy plate on our equipment. If processing of heavy plate is required, then oxy-cutting is a good option. Because of the benefits this machine offers, it allows the processing of almost any profile in materials up to 200mm thick.

Manufacturing Advantages are:

  • Accuracy
  • Wide range of materials and thicknesses
  • Large format materials
  • Economical
  • Lower heat input – lower risk of material warping
  • Cut-edge quality
  • Speed

Investing in the best machinery

As with Unique Metals Laser’s other technologies, investment in the best available machinery and technology has seen the installation of a fully equipped large format 3.2m x 25m hi-definition plasma/oxy & drilling machine – equipped with the latest high-end plasma source and a fully automated robotic unloading device.

Because of the advanced technology of this machine it allows us to support the heavy end material processing utilising the full functionality of a 28-station automatic tool library. Cutting, drilling (of up to 100mm holes), tapping (up to 50mm), milling and more services can be provided in the same process. This uniQue machine also provides us with a fully automated plasma bevelling function.

Advanced Plasma Technolgy


Unique Metals Laser have invested in this state-of-the-art Plasma cutting technology for their Welshpool facility. This investment ensures Unique Metals Laser is well placed to continue its support for local manufacturing.

This is a heavy duty, combination machine offering precision plasma or flame cutting along with the added benefit of machining operations such as, drilling, vertical machining and beveling using the 28 tooling station.
