Industrial plasma process metal cutting machines are used to chop and shape metals. They are extremely precise and can cut through very hard materials quickly and easily. The machines use a high-powered electric arc to heat the metal until it liquefies. This allows the machine to cut through the metal easily with minimal damage.
The most common types of injuries that occur while operating a plasma process metal cutting machine include cuts, scrapes, and burns. Injuries caused by the machine can range from minor nicks and scratches to more serious burns and lacerations. It is important to use caution when operating a plasma process metal cutting machine and to take steps to prevent injuries from happening in the first place.
Specif injuries that can occur when using a plasma cutter include:
-finger injuries from the high-energy beam used in the cutting process
-injuries to the hands and arms from holding the tool during the cutting process
-injuries to the eyes from the intense light used in the cutting process
-back and neck injuries from repeated bending and reaching during use
If you have been injured by a plasma metal cutting machine, you should contact an attorney. An attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options if you have been injured.
