One of the best ways to cut metal is with an inverter plasma cutter. The plasma cutter
can be used with gas or compressed air. Compressed air is the most popular gas for cutting.

Plasma cutting is an automated, high-speed metal cutting process. This technology has become an essential tool in many industrial applications. It can be used for a wide variety of metals and tasks, including: shape cutting, beveling, piercing, and stack cutting.
The plasma arc is created by using a DC voltage to heat compressed air. A small jet of plasma is then pushed through the tip of a molten metal. Depending on the type of material being cut, different gases are used to produce the optimal arc. Compressed air is usually the gas of choice for inverter plasma cutters.
Oxy/fuel is also commonly used. This combination combines oxygen and fuel to form an oxide, which prevents oxidation. When used in a plasma cutter, it can produce a smooth finish on stainless steel. However, it is not advisable for cutting thinner materials.
