Research of the Technological Parameters Importance for Plasma Arc Thermal Cutting
Many clients and plasma arc thermal cutting devices providers deal with the question which technological factor in adjustment process of cutting has the greatest influence on the final product quality. Many researchers and teachers deal with this issue during lecturing these knowledges for university students. The article presents the design and evaluation of plasma arc cutting technological process. Influence of technological factors on roughness parameters Ra of the steel surface ISO Fe510 have been evaluated using planned experiments. Using factor experiment, the significance of the four process factors: plasma burner feed speed, plasma gas pressure, nozzle diameter, distance between nozzle mouth and material have been observed. Regression models obtained by multiple linear regression indicates the quality level as observed factors function.
