In flame cutting, oxygen is blown into the area where the metal is molten by a flame or laser beam.
Oxygen is a very reactive gas and causes the melted material to burns instantly. Flame cutting is faster compared to fusion laser cutting because oxygen increases the heat development of the beam and supports the cutting process.
However, reactions of oxygen with metals also have disadvantages. Often the oxidized cutting edges must be cleaned and descaled. Flame cutting may only be used for steel products. Non-Ferro and stainless steels are not suitable for flame cutting. For these process we use fusion cutting.
With the BrightLine cutting method for thicker materials the quality of the cut edges can be significantly improved.Read more
With the CoolLine - laser cutting technique parts can be cooled during cutting.Read more
Fusion Laser Cutting
In fusion laser cutting, the cutting gap is shielded by nitrogen to prevent the formation of scale.Read more
