Description: Flame cutting, also called oxyfuel cutting, is a common machining method for thick plate. Oxyfuel flame cutting is the most economical process to cut mild and low alloy steels, even with weld preparations. It is one of the most important production processes in metal industry.
Plate thickness: 3 mm up to 280 mm
Typical: 10 mm up to 260 mm
Low operating cost
Thick material cutting capability
Smooth and vertical cutting surface
Metallurgical perfect surfaces (oxidized)
Oxyfuel is also a good choice for those who primarily need to cut thick (more than 51 mm or 2”) carbon steel. In addition, oxyfuel can be an economical alternative if you don’t have many parts to cut and aren’t especially concerned about productivity or per-part profitability.
