What Are the Safe Ways To Do Plasma Cutting?

When you are doing a plasma cutting, it must always be accompanied with necessary safety measures just to avoid the arising of accidents or any mishaps.

The plasma cutter has an electric circuit that is found between the so-called torch and the work object. Always be reminded that any friction or motion that taps the work object will also pass the same object through the electric circuit. It is dangerous to tap or touch any portion of the torch body or work object when plasma cutting is still going on because it may also give you a sudden thunder attack that will endanger your existence.

Basically, plasma cutting is a device that functions well in cutting any form of steel and other electrically conductive metals. However, the voltage electric arc and the compressed gas needed for the plasma cutter varies from one another and would usually depends on the type of steel, welding materials or other electrically conductive metals. The plasma cutters vary from welding cutters in terms of the amount of voltage is needs to cut steels as it normally rages from 100-200 volts.

Never retrieve the work object when you are still doing the plasma cutting to avoid harm. All you have to do is to let the work object rest for a while on the cutting bench tied in a ground cable while the cutting process still going on. Never retrieve the ground clamp as well during the plasma cutting operation. Just let the ground cable together with the work object rest for a while but never let them be removed while you are still doing the cutting process.

Make sure that you are wearing an insulated boots and gloves that will keep you safe when you are doing the actual plasma cutting process because the tendency getting your body and garments dry is really high.

Always understand that you are not allowed to stand, sit, lie or even touch wet areas especially when you are in the operation of plasma cutter system. The ground cable must always be looked after during the plasma cutting process so check if it is accompanied in the work object. If there are damages in the plasma cutting machine, always have a plan b and replace it with a new one as soon as possible.

Using boots and gloves is necessary as one must also have proper eye protection if you are in the verge of plasma cutter operation. Learning that there are so-called arc rays producing dangerous ultraviolet and infrared waves that has the tendency to cause cataracts and skin problem when you don’t keep a proper eye protection. Some of the necessary clothes and garments to prepare are the gloves, welding safety shoes, welding helmets, flame-retardant clothes, and trousers.
