Zeny Cut-50 Plasma Cutter Review

 
 

The Cut-50 Plasma Cutter from Zeny is an excellent choice if you are a DIY type of person and love to fix things on your own. It will help you do your job properly, especially if you are on a budget. It features on our list of the best plasma cutters.

Instead of using a jigsaw for cutting different materials, you can use this appliance to get a smoother and cleaner cut. Jigsaws and other cutting tools can cause metals to warp, which looks very unprofessional.

However, the Cut-50 will deliver a nice and meticulous cut to make your work look more professional. This plasma cutter is also very durable, so you can use it without worrying about it getting broken or cracked.

Ease of Use

The Cut-50 has a very simple design, and therefore it is very easy to use. It also comes with a user manual that will guide you on how to use it.

It also features a digital readout, which makes it easier for the user and provides a greater margin of accessibility. The digital readout is very clear and legible, and there is a manual dial present as well at the right side of the machine that allows the user to dial in.

You also have the choice of plugging a 110 or 220 V plug (which you have to buy separately as it doesn’t come with the unit).

Cutting Precision

The Cut-50 can be used for cutting different types of materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, copper, steel, and others. The cutting precision depends on the metal that you are cutting, and its cleanliness.

If the metal surface you are cutting is a dirty one, then the cutting will not be precise. Therefore, if you want good cutting results, you must clean the metal before cutting. This is because dirty metals have a tendency to reflect on the plasma tip.

The cutting thickness range of this plasma cutter is 1-12mm, and thus it can precisely cut any material that falls within this range.
