James Spurgeon Posted November 4, 2014 Share Posted November 4, 2014 I have seen a lot of conflicting information on the internet regarding cutting Titanium with a standard plasma cutter. Some people warn the Ti can ignite if standard air is used when plasma cutting. Others state that using a mixed inert/hydrogen gas for plasma cutting Ti is beneficial, but that cutting with standard air will cause no problems as long as the heat affected zone is ground to remove oxides potentially formed during cutting... I do know that Ti is technically flammable, but I am not sure which way to trust... Has anyone on here had any experience with flame or plasma cutting Ti?
