Combination Plasma and Drilling

Our plasma system with an integrated drill head is ideal for precision cutting and processing extra-thick materials. The dual capability boosts throughput and dramatically lowers operating costs by delivering faster cutting speeds, repeatability, accuracy, quick changeovers and high reliability.

Plasma cutting and drilling technology

Plasma uses a high temperature ionised gas to produce a very hot, high energy-density arc that can cut any conductive material, including mild steel, carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminium and other metals.

Integrating a drill head allows for precision work and extra thick materials to be processed.

Boosted capability

Rigby Jones uses HyPerformance plasma cutting systems with a drill head to deliver superior productivity in X-Y, bevel, drilling, tapping, countersink and counterbore applications on metal ranging up to 80mm thick.

Sparking steel cutter machine

Our plasma cutting and drilling capability allows us to process extra thick materials up to 80mm thick for carbon steel and 50mm thick for stainless steel. The technology cuts, bevels and marks carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminium and other metals with absolute precision and is ideal for applications across a range of industries.
