is used for material thicknesses of up to 300 mm
In autogenous flame cutting with steel thicknesses of 50 mm to 300 mm, the oxygen pressure, the burner nozzle and the burner gas must be adjusted exactly to each other. Plasma cutting is used for high-alloy steels and thicker aluminium and stainless steel sheets.
For flame cutting, non-alloy or low-alloy steel is heated up to ignition temperature at the cutting kerf. The oxygen gas jet coming out of the cutting nozzle then oxidises the heated metal and blows the slag out of the kerf at the same time.
In contrast to flame cutting, all electrically conductive materials with thicknesses of up to approx. 50 mm can be separated on our plasma machines. Electrically conductive plasma gas is heated up to approx. 30,000°C, which makes the work piece immediately melt precisely at the cutting edge.
A combination of punching and laser cutting facilitates the benefits of a laser-cut outer contour on complex parts. We guarantee a precise, reliability and high-quality finish of all parts.
