What cutting process uses a stiff, highly ionized, extremely hot column of gas to almost instantly vaporize the metal being cut?

To determine

The cutting process that uses a stiff, highly ionized, extremely hot column of gas to almost instantly vaporize the metal being cut.

Explanation of Solution

Thermal cutting process is a process of separating a metal part into two or more parts by application of heat on the metal part. A thermal cutting process may or may not use a stream of cutting oxygen. The three dominant thermal cutting processes are oxy-fuel cutting, laser cutting and plasma arc cutting.

Plasma Arc cutting: This process is used for the metals that cannot be separated with the help of flame. In this process, the ionized gas is used to cut the metal. A high-pressure air is forced to pass through a nozzle between the tungsten electrode and the torch tip, which results in the formation of ionized plasma. The ionized air expands and comes out from the torch tip at supersonic speed to cut the metal...
