If the technology functions as expected it will have a great potential. At best, it should be able to revolutionize industrial welding and thermal cutting. It has a theoretical potential to obtain unseen cutting speeds in both thin plates as well as thick steel plates. It should also be possible to obtain welding qualities and production capacities, which clearly surpass what can be realized today in practical welding production. The process will be competitive to the known technologies both in investment costs as well as operating costs.
