Consumables

Consumables for a plasma cutter can be a large part of the ongoing expenses you’re having with your machine, if you choose a cheap machine like the LTP5000D. Where you will see your money going is towards cutting tips and electrodes.

If you haven’t yet bought your plasma cutter, it can be a good idea to not just consider the price of the machine, but also how quickly the model you’re considering will go through the consumables.

It is very likely that you may end up damaging the tip if you’re just starting out and don’t have the technique right yet. Secondly, an electrode that is way past its prime can have an effect on how much work you’re managing to get done as it will significantly slow down your cutting. When you’re wanting to not just make beautiful cuts, but also do so in a timely manner, you will end up having to make sure your consumables are also doing what they’re supposed to.

There are also other consumables to keep in mind if you don’t have a portable plasma cutter but rather a CNC. Some of these, it can even be hard to notice that they have deteriorated over time and they include the nozzle, the swirl ring, the retaining cap and the shield. Make sure that you keep an eye out for these parts so as to get better cuts in the future!

While these machines may seem pricey at first, there are so much savings for you to get from their incredible performance. Compared to a Hypertherm HPR XD, using O2, for mild steel with a 1 inch plate, while you’re able to cut 1,000 feet every 8 hours, at an energy cost of $0.07 per kWh, and gas cost of $5 per 100 ft3, they’re calculating that you may save an $4,500 every single year, with lower downtime.
