Abstract. The paper presents the results of microgeometry measurements of cut surfaces. The cutting was carried out using a Hypertherm hand plasma cutter. Samples made of copper, 0H18N9 stainless steel and S355E low-alloy steel were the used tests. The current values at which the smallest roughness of the cut surface was obtained for a given material were determined.
