We are a West Australian owned and operated family business specializing in metal fabrication. We are doing out part to support local by only sourcing our materials and resources from Australian businesses, so you can rest assured that from the materials to the finish and everything in between, is supporting local Australian businesses.
At Austech Illusions, we are proud owners of our very own state of the art Plasma Cutter. This machine allows us to cut through up to 10mm steel like butter! This along with our team of dedicated graphic designers gives us the ability to bring all of your steel dreams to life. We are able to create your beautiful custom designs only limited by your imagination.
We offer a full range of metal solutions for residential and commercial sectors from the planning and design stage all the way through to the fabrication and installation of your product. We offer full installation of all gates including site works.
The Plasma Cutter is one of the most interesting and powerful tools developed in the 20th century. Using basic principles of physics to harness the fourth state of matter, plasma. Our Plasma cutter makes cutting the steel the easy part, the hard part is choosing what custom design you want!
What is Plasma?
Plasma is created when gas reaches an extremely high temperature. The energy begins to break apart the gas molecules causing the atoms to begin to split. In plasma, electrons separate from the nucleus. Once the energy of heat releases the electrons from the atom, electrons begin to quickly move around. The electrons are negatively charged, leaving behind their positively charged nuclei also known as ‘ions’. When the fast-moving electrons collide with electrons and ions, they release a large amount of energy. This energy is what gives plasma its incredibly unique status and unbelievable cutting power.
How does a plasma cutter work?
Plasma cutters work by sending a pressurized gas, such as nitrogen, oxygen, or argon, through a small channel. Negatively charges electrodes are found in the center of this channel. When power is applied to the negative electrode and the tip of the nozzle and the metal touch, a circuit is created. A powerful spark is generated between the electrode and the metal. As the gas passes through the channel, the spark heats the gas until it reaches the fourth state of matter, Plasma. This reaction creates a stream of directed plasma, approximately 16, 649 degrees Celsius, and moving at 6,096 meters per second. This heat and speed reduce the metal to molten slag. The plasma cutter due to incredible heat it generates sits on a bed of water to help cool the metal down.
Our staff are trained to go above and beyond with every single job they complete. It is because of our exceptional standards of work, our intricate eye for detail, and the ability to create and complete projects of all sizes with fast turnaround time, that our clients receive nothing but the best possible experience from Austech Illusions from the first initial contact to the finished product.
