Bevel cutting is the process of cutting a part with an edge that is not perpendicular to the top of the piece. This is done to increase the surface area of the edge for a stronger, more secure weld.
Hypertherm’s HyAccess extended reach consumables give users extra reach when plasma cutting or gouging in hard to access or confined spaces, and are designed for use with Powermax air plasma systems.
When cutting parts with very fine details or intricate shapes, you need processes capable of producing very thin kerfs.
The new Powermax® flush cutting process lets you cut closer to base materials than ever before, reducing costly, time consuming secondary operations.
Plasma gouging – removing metal using a plasma arc – is similar to plasma cutting. A plasma arc between the torch and the workpiece melts the metal, and a gas jet blows away the molten material.
Many jobs require the addition of holes to bolt two or more pieces or parts together, so hole production is an important part of most cutting operations.
Marking is routinely used by fabricators and manufacturers to etch numbers or letters into a part, indicate where a hole should go, highlight a weld location, and other operations.
