what is plasma arc gouging

What is Plasma Gouging?

Plasma Arc Gouging (PAG) Plasma Arc Gouging is a simple method of metal removal that is performed by angling the torch to a lead angle of 35-45 degrees and using a gouging tip, while maintaining a constant standoff distance. This allows for only a partial penetration into the work, thus removing met..
