We all know that the CNC plasma cutting machine is a particular device used to cut metal elements like mild steel, galvanized sheet, stainless steel, and copper. When buying a CNC plasma cutter, many users will ask us a question: how thick carbon steel sheets this machine can cut? It depends on the plasma generator of the equipment. In other words, the plasma source is the thing that determines the cutting thickness of the machine.

The cutting capacity of the plasma generator varies according to its power. Therefore, we have to match the machine with adequate plasma power according to your cutting thickness requirements.

In your inquiry to us, as long as you specify the cutting thickness you need, we can know what power can best meet your needs. Then we can send you an official quotation for the whole machine set.


For your reference, we are always using two brands for our cnc plasma tables; they are Huayuan and Hypertherm. The former is one of China's best brands, while the latter is one of the best brands in the world.

Let's take a look at the cutting thickness chart of both.


Note: The cutting thickness in the following chart refers to the cutting capacity for mild steel on a plasma cutting CNC table, not the case in the hand-held cutting.
