What is Plasma Cutting ?
Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut steel and other metals of different thicknesses (or sometimes other materials) using a plasma torch. In this process, a gas (oxygen, air, inert and others dependant on material) is blown at high speed out of a nozzle; at the same time an electrical arc is formed through that gas from the nozzle to the surface being cut, turning some of that gas to plasma. The plasma is hot enough to melt the metal being cut and moves fast enough to blow molten metal away from the cut.
In modern CNC Plasma Cutting systems, end-to-end component design is highly automated using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programs. The programs produce a computer file that is interpreted to extract the commands needed to operate a particular machine via a post processor, and then loaded into the CNC machines for production. Since any particular component might require the use of a number of different tools drills, saws, etc., modern machines often combine multiple tools into a single “cell”. In other installations, a number of different machines are used with an external controller and human or robotic operators that move the component from machine to machine. In either case, the series of steps needed to produce any part is highly automated and produces a part that closely matches the original CAD design.
What is 304 Stainless Steel ?
One of the most versatile and commonly used stainless steels on the market, Grade 304 stainless steel is the most standard used alloy of this type. Essentially, Grade 304 is an austenitic chromium alloy which is also known as an “18/8″ stainless as the make-up of the steel is 18% chromium and 8% nickel.
The chromium content promotes the material’s considerable resistance to the effects of corrosion and oxidation. The stainless steel alloy resists most oxidizing acids and will withstand ordinary rusting though this does not mean that the steel will not tarnish over time. The steel needs to be cold worked to generate higher tensile strength. For stainless steel sections which are welded heavily, post-weld annealing may be necessary to provide maximum corrosive resistance.
Alloys 304 (S30400), 304L (S30403), and 304H (S30409) stainless steels are variations of the 18 percent chromium Ã¢‚¬€œ 8 percent nickel austenitic alloy, the most familiar and most frequently used alloy in the stainless steel family. These alloys may be considered for a wide variety of applications where one or more of the following properties are important:

Resistance to Corrosion
The Alloys 304, 304L, and 304H austenitic stainless steels provide useful resistance to corrosion on a wide range of moderately oxidizing to moderately reducing environments. The alloys are used widely in equipment and utensils for processing and handling of food, beverages, and dairy products. Heat exchangers, piping, tanks, and other process equipment in contact with fresh water also utilize these alloys.
The 18 to 19 percent of chromium which these alloys contain provides resistance to oxidizing environments such as dilute nitric acid, as illustrated by data for Alloy 304 below.
|% Nitric Acid||Temperature
|10||300 (149)||5.0 (0.13)|
|20||300 (149)||10.1 (0.25)|
|30||300 (149)||17.0 (0.43)|
Alloys 304, 304L, and 304H are also resistant to moderately aggressive organic acids such as acetic and reducing acids such as phosphoric. The 9 to 11 percent of nickel contained by these 18-8 alloys assists in providing resistance to moderately reducing environments. The more highly reducing environments such as boiling dilute hydrochloric and sulfuric acids are shown to be too aggressive for these materials. Boiling 50 percent caustic is likewise too aggressive.
In some cases, the low carbon Alloy 304L may show a lower corrosion rate than the higher carbon Alloy 304. The data for formic acid, sulfamic acid, and sodium hydroxide illustrate this. Otherwise, the Alloys 304, 304L, and 304H may be considered to perform equally in most corrosive environments. A notable exception is in environments sufficiently corrosive to cause intergranular corrosion of welds and heat-affected zones on susceptible alloys. The Alloy 304L is preferred for use in such media in the welded condition since the low carbon level enhances resistance to intergranular corrosion.
Exposure of the 18-8 austenitic stainless steels to temperatures in the 800Ã‚°F to 1500Ã‚°F (427Ã‚°C to 816Ã‚°C) range may cause precipitation of chromium carbides in grain boundaries. Such steels are “sensitized” and subject to intergranular corrosion when exposed to aggressive environments. The carbon content of Alloy 304 may allow sensitization to occur from thermal conditions experienced by autogenous welds and heat-affected zones of welds. For this reason, the low carbon Alloy 304L is preferred for applications in which the material is put into service in the as-welded condition. Low carbon content extends the time necessary to precipitate a harmful level of chromium carbides but does not eliminate the precipitation reaction for material held for long times in the precipitation temperature range.

Stress Corrosion Cracking
The Alloys 304, 304L, and 304H are the most susceptible of the austenitic stainless steels to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in halides because of their relatively low nickel content. Conditions which cause SCC are: (1) presence of halide ions (generally chloride), (2) residual tensile stresses, and (3) temperatures in excess of about 120Ã‚°F (49Ã‚°C). Stresses may result from cold deformation of the alloy during forming or by roller expanding tubes into tube sheets or by welding operations which produce stresses from the thermal cycles used. Stress levels may be reduced by annealing or stress relieving heat treatments following cold deformation, thereby reducing sensitivity to halide SCC. The low carbon Alloy 304L material is the better choice for service in the stress-relieved condition in environments which might cause intergranular corrosion.

Ambient Temperature Seacoast ExposureBase
The 18-8 alloys have been used very successfully in fresh waters containing low levels of chloride ion. Generally, 100 ppm chloride is considered to be the limit for the 18-8 alloys, particularly if crevices are present. Higher levels of chloride might cause crevice corrosion and pitting. For the more severe conditions of higher chloride levels, lower pH, and/or higher temperatures, alloys with higher molybdenum content such as Alloy 316 should be considered. The 18-8 alloys are not recommended for exposure to marine environments.

|18 – 1600||20 – 870||11.0 x 10-6||19.8 x 10-6|
The overall heat transfer coefficient of metals is determined by factors in addition to the thermal conductivity of the metal. The ability of the 18-8 stainless grades to maintain clean surfaces often allows better heat transfer than other metals having higher thermal conductivity.
|32 – 212||0 – 100||0.12||500|
The 18-8 alloys are generally non-magnetic in the annealed condition with magnetic permeability values typically less than 1.02 at 200H. Permeability values will vary with composition and will increase with cold work.

Low and Elevated Temperature Properties
Typical short time tensile property data for low and elevated temperatures are shown below. At temperatures of 1000Ã‚°F (538Ã‚°C) or higher, creep and stress rupture become considerations. Typical creep and stress rupture data are also shown below.
The fatigue strength or endurance limit is the maximum stress below which material is unlikely to fail in 10 million cycles in air environment. The fatigue strength for austenitic stainless steels, as a group, is typically about 35 percent of the tensile strength. Substantial variability in service results is experienced since additional variables influence fatigue strength. As examples Ã¢‚¬€œ increased smoothness of surface improves strength, increased corrosivity of service environment decreases strength.
The austenitic stainless steels are considered to be the most weldable of the high-alloy steels and can be welded by all fusion and resistance welding processes. The Alloys 304 and 304L are typical of the austenitic stainless steels.
Two important considerations in producing weld joints in the austenitic stainless steels are: 1) preservation of corrosion resistance, and 2) avoidance of cracking.
A temperature gradient is produced in the material being welded which ranges from above the melting temperature in the molten pool to ambient temperature at some distance from the weld. The higher the carbon level of the material being welded, the greater the likelihood that the welding thermal cycle will result in the chromium carbide precipitation which is detrimental to corrosion resistance. To provide material at the best level of corrosion resistance, low carbon material (Alloy 304L) should be used for material put in service in the welded condition. Alternately, full annealing dissolves the chromium carbide and restores a high level of corrosion resistance to the standard carbon content materials.
Weld metal with a fully austenitic structure is more susceptible to cracking during the welding operation. For this reason, Alloys 304 and 304L are designed to resolidify with a small amount of ferrite to minimize cracking susceptibility.
Alloy 309 (23% Cr Ã¢‚¬€œ 13.5% Ni) or nickel-base filler metals are used in joining the 18-8 austenitic alloys to carbon steel. Heat Treatment
The austenitic stainless steels are heat treated to remove the effects of cold forming or to dissolve precipitated chromium carbides. The surest heat treatment to accomplish both requirements is the solution anneal which is conducted in the 1850Ã‚°F to 2050Ã‚°F range (1010Ã‚°C to 1121Ã‚°C). Cooling from the anneal temperature should be at sufficiently high rates through 1500-800Ã‚°F (816Ã‚°C – 427Ã‚°C) to avoid reprecipitation of chromium carbides.
These materials cannot be hardened by heat treatment.
Despite their corrosion resistance, stainless steels need care in fabrication and use to maintain their surface appearance even under normal conditions of service.
In welding, inert gas processes are used. Scale or slag that forms from welding processes is removed with a stainless steel wire brush. Normal carbon steel wire brushes will leave carbon steel particles in the surface which will eventually produce surface rusting. For more severe applications, welded areas should be treated with a descaling solution such as a mixture of nitric and hydrofluoric acids, and these should be subsequently washed off.
For material exposed inland, light industrial, or milder service, minimum maintenance is required. Only sheltered areas need occasional washing with a stream of pressurized water. In heavy industrial areas, frequent washing is advisable to remove dirt deposits which might eventually cause corrosion and impair the surface appearance of the stainless steel.
Stubborn spots and deposits like burned-on food can be removed by scrubbing with a non-abrasive cleaner and fiber brush, a sponge, or pad of stainless steel wool. The stainless steel wool will leave a permanent mark on smooth stainless steel surfaces.
Many of these uses of stainless steel involve cleaning or sterilizing on a regular basis. Equipment is cleaned with specially designed caustic soda, organic solvent, or acid solutions such as phosphoric or sulfamic acid (strongly reducing acids such as hydrofluoric or hydrochloric may be harmful to these stainless steels).
Cleaning solutions need to be drained and stainless steel surfaces rinsed thoroughly with fresh water.
Design can aid cleanability. Equipment with rounded corners, fillets, and absence of crevices facilitates cleaning as do smooth ground welds and polished surfaces
