Plasma cutting is a process that is used to cut steel and other metals of different thicknesses
(or sometimes other materials) using a plasma torch. In this process, an inert gas (in some units, compressed air) is blown
at high speed out of a nozzle; at the same time an electrical arc is formed through that gas from the nozzle to the surface
being cut, turning some of that gas to plasma. The plasma is sufficiently hot to melt the metal being cut and moves sufficiently
fast to blow molten metal away from the cut.
