Resolving Plasma Cutting Challenges for a Welding Equipment OEM

Category: 

A welding equipment OEM was experiencing poor leak rates with their plasma cutting systems. Learn more about how Clippard's solution significantly increased the performance and efficiency of their system.

Problem:

Welding equipment OEM faces high operational costs and poor leak rates

A welding equipment OEM was experiencing a number of challenges with their plasma cutting systems. The systems traditionally consume over 100W of power, leading to high operational costs and inefficiency. Additionally, poor leak rate performance can waste expensive gases. Limited gas blending and pressure control capabilities were another issue that was impeding the cutting process. The lack of effective feedback mechanisms was hampering the regulation of cutting gas pressure and the maintenance of the gas shield around the cutting arc.
