Plasma Tips Q

Recommended Posts

Doing some hunting about for plasma consumables, found that you

can get either FLAT or CONICAL "Ends", ie one is flat and a hole in the middle

and one is sort of V shaped with same hole

Could a grown up please xpalin differeences and when each would be used

in preference to the other ?

Could it be something to do with line of sight? The pointy tips are for when you need to see what you're cutting, the other tips (which might have better cooling / longevity?) could be used for CNC or in a cutting guide etc.

Thats my best guess, but I'm probably way off. Anyway, for manual use get the ones that let you see where you are cutting.
