The heating flame brings the material up to its ignition temperature. Then a jet of Oxygen at least 99,5 % pure is blown onto the heated spot. The Oxygen jet oxidizes the metal. The torch is moved and a narrow cutting kerf is created, removing the slag from the kerf.
Despite the increasing significance of the other cutting processes such as plasma and laser cutting, oxyfuel flame cutting is still a very economical process.
- Plate thickness: 3 mm up to 2800 mm
- Typical: 10 mm up to 300 mm
- Good cut quality
- Smooth, vertical cutting surface
- Metallurgical perfect surfaces (oxidized)
Machine flame cutting ensures reliable hole-piercing, good cutting quality and allows the production of components to their finished sizes without the need for further processing. For weld seam preparations V, Y and K cuts can be produced.
