Abstract

Transferred arc plasma torches are widely used in industrial cutting process of metallic materials because of their ability to cut a wide range of metals and because of the very high productivity that can be achieved with this technology. Various experimental and computational activities will be reported here and in particular: high speed imaging of transient phenomena and Schlieren photography in Plasma Arc Cutting (PAC), experimental analysis of the behavior of high current electrodes in PAC during first cycles and plasma modelling and numerical simulation as a useful tools for the design and optimization of these kinds of devices.
