Cutting Thickness

Cutting Quality

Check the cut quality if could meet or exceed your application. The quality of the cut on the finished piece ultimately effects the quality of the part as well as the time spent in secondary operations on clean-up. Modern precision plasma systems provide tight focused arc providing a clean, smooth and straight cut.

Choose CNC Type With Torch Height Controller

For a plasma cutter to provide long-term value, it must be easy to set up and use. Look for one that is simple to learn and operate and which comes loaded with time-saving features such as a torch height control system. A machine that is easy to use and which incorporates cost-saving features will increase your productivity and your bottom line.

If you buy cheap, you will buy your plasma cutter more than once.
You get what you pay for. Be willing to pay for a quality CNC plasma cutter that will make, not cost, you money. Buying quality is never a mistake.

” My name is Ray Bogunovic from total workshop maintenance in Sydney Australia and I run a small maintenance business with fabrication shop. I had been thinking of buying a cnc plasma for quite some time and it has actually been my best machine purchase and would recommend Omni also. My machine is well built easy to use and Omni were a pleasure to deal with and what they said they were going to do was done just as explained. I know people talk down to Chinese machinery but it’s great value for money and in just a few jobs it will have already paid itself of.
Great job Omni thanks for such a great machine.”
