What Thickness Steel? 10mm Mild Steel Brackets and Washers
Our CNC plasma table comfortably cuts up to 10mm thick steel. We recently designed and made these parts for a customer to use on a fabrication project he was working on.
Parts that would have taken hours of labour to produce were drawn up and manufactured by us in under 60 minutes on our machine- saving the customer time and allowing him to finish his project faster.
We can cut up to 10mm thick with our current plasma cutting machine, but all the stock signs we sell are done in 2mm thick mild steel as standard, 2.5mm thick for custom signs. We have cut from 1mm to 10mm thick parts, and can use different thickness on request by the customer.
Is thicker steel better for Plasma Cutting?
It entirely depends on the use of your item. As the majority of our signs are intended as home decor, 2mm steel is fine. If you want 3mm steel we're more than happy to supply it, just be aware that your sign will be heavier and you'll need to account for that when you're installing it.
We've recently designed a new style of signs which are double layered 2mm steel, so you can get the strength of 4mm thick steel without the extra weight.
