Metals Processing Capabilities


Alro’s precision Plasma Cutting machines

Plasma Cutting

Alro’s Plasma Cutting Systems provide tighter tolerances, minimizes machining on finished parts and provides greater part accuracy than standard flame cutting. Plasma has a smaller heat affected zone and reduced edge cracking when forming. PC-based control technology increases control in shape cutting.

Advantages include:
  • High quality edge cuts
  • Minimal clean-up
  • Small heat-affected zone
  • Etching and beveling capabilities
  • Forming as a potential secondary process
