Plasma cutting has long been the gold standard method for cutting carbon steel in manufacturing. This technique may be utilized in industries such as automotive, appliances, structural, infrastructure, construction, aerospace, and oil and gas. Plasma cutting is a primary metal cutting technique, leading to the installation of thousands of automated cutting systems annually.
Oxy-fuel cutting is a process that relies on oxygen to cut metal. Instead of air, pure oxygen is applied in order to increase the temperature when cutting. First, a torch is utilized to heat the metal to its appropriate kindling temperature. Then, a stream of oxygen is applied to the metal, enabling it to burn into a metal oxide.
