The aim of this article is to understand if an automated plasma cutter can be used as an alternative tool instead of the traditional cutting methods e.g. circular and reciprocating saws, our aim included how this would be beneficial within the automotive sector which involves primarily companies where the business focus is the conversion of vehicles, we will be looking primarily at a more efficient approach to the underbody chassis floor trimming stage during the conversion process which could eliminate challenges encountered during the cutting process using saws for instance profiling issues, risk of injury, costing and time consumed, the study showed that using a robotic plasma arm could be the answer.
