O’Neal Manufacturing Services (OMS) offers plasma cutting services to produce high-quality metal components for our customers. Also known as plasma burning, this process blows compressed air or gas at high speed through a nozzle which then makes contact with an electrode. The resulting ionization creates intense pressure which results in a column of pure plasma emitted from the nozzle. The cutting tip of the nozzle constrains the flow of plasma to create even more pressure. At its finest point, the plasma is hot enough to cut directly through thick materials like steel plates. Used to cut medium to heavy thickness metals including carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and alloys, plasma cutting is an economical and efficient manufacturing process that allows for tolerance control and repeatability.
OMS performs two types of Plasma Cutting processes: Arc cutting & high-definition plasma cutting. Arc cutting uses an electrical arc formed from the nozzle to the surface being cut. The cutting head is programmed to the contour of the part, including complex shapes. High-definition plasma cutting is a relatively new process that cuts similar materials with more tolerance control. It can process carbon steel materials, stainless, and aluminum in the 2” thickness range.

Python X Beam Line Fabrication
For structural steel fabrication, a lean machine designed to for CNC plasma cutting is extremely valuable for processing beam lines. Making quick work of beams, channels, angle iron, square and rectangular HSS, flat bar, strip plate, and stair stringers, the Python X beam line enlists high definition plasma technology to align and focus the plasma arc, improving arc stability and energy for more precise cutting.
A Commitment to Quality
OMS offers vertically integrated turnkey manufacturing processes including extensive in-house 2nd and 3rd step processing capabilities. Our fully automated cutting and assembly equipment represents the most current in technology. Each facility is ISO 9001:2015 certified offering significant capacity and manufacturing redundancies. We practice collaboration on new and existing products using our Value-Analysis/Value-Engineering (VA/VE) process. This allows us to validate the manufacturing process prior to production, saving development time, reducing costs and delivering on schedule every time.
