CNC (Computer Numerical Control) – Commands are put through to the cutters via a storage medium. Flame cutting hasn’t got the ability to perform detailed products but has the ability to cut through thick materials with ease. Can cut up to 200mm plate (mild steel, bennox, roq-tuf, etc). Preheating to perform pierces.
Using an angled plate with several tonnes of pressure to slice the metal upto a thickness of 8mm.
HD Plasma has the ability to cut through materials upto 30mm and maintaining a smooth cut. Can cut much smaller and detailed work, doesn’t require heating of the metal for pierce as it uses high pressured gases to do this pierce in a single shot. Using oxygen to cut and nitrogen for stainless steel.
Using a press brake machine to perform bends to metal using certain tools and then applying pressure to perform the bend required. Bending upto a thickness of 10mm with ease for thicker metals ie. 25mm the metal would be heated before to ensure the metal does not crack or break.
Laser cutting uses a combination of helium Co’2 and oxygen when cutting stainless steel. The machine uses nitrogen and delivers a very high detailed product. Can cut accurately up to 16mm plate, no process is needed after the cut as the laser cutes perfectly using nozzles to get the detail you require and depending on thickness the nozzles vary.
CAD (Computer Aided Design) – Using programs on the main computer such as sigma nest, a draftsman uses these programs to program the automated machines such as laser to get the most out of a plate of metal. It allows for multiple parts to be automatically rearranged, this maximizes the use of the material.
