The differences between laser and plasma cutting in sheet metal are well known but what are the criteria for choosing between them when cutting tubes and profiles?
Laser cutting and plasma cutting are two technologically different metal cutting methods. As can be expected, the characteristics of the cut, the types of applications and the benefits they can offer are also different.

The steel construction sector demands radical changes in the processes used to cut H, C and IPE type tubes and profiles and to prepare them for successive fabrication steps. There is an increased demand to construct ultra-modern structures. The ever-increasing complexity of forms and requirement of esthetically appealing appearances present a growing fabrication challenge. This modern trend is also seen in residential buildings. Additional aspects of the modern trend are eco-sustainability and the need to complete the projects in shorter time frames to reduce costs.
