We are talking today about a course in cutting by various methods. Oxyfuel cutting is one of the most popular methods used to separate metals, and is particularly important when it comes to cutting low-carbon and low-alloy steels.

The whole magic of this process is to bring the materials to a temperature where ignition occurs, then burn and blow off the liquid metal oxides thanks to a high-pressure oxygen jet. The popularity of this method is due to its high efficiency, and this comes from the reliable design of the burner. It is the burner that is responsible for blowing out the oxygen, first mixing it in the right proportion with the combustible gas.

What combustible gases are used in the heating process?

The most common are:

  • Propane-butane
  • Acetylene

Acetylon-oxygen cutting:

This type of cutting, is renowned for its time saving and reliability. This makes it the method of choice.

What are the advantages of oxygen cutting?

  • Cutting at multiple angles, freedom
  • Perpendicular cutting edges
  • Multi-thickness cutting range possible
  • Excellent cutting quality, especially for thicker materials
  • Automation option
  • Low equipment costs
  • Low operating costs

Where are oxygen cuts such as acetylon-oxygen used?

These cuts are used when thick steel materials need to be cut, in which case the cuts are reliable. The extensive possibilities for this type of cutting make the work much more efficient and trouble-free. This technique is most often used in workshops and businesses, but it can also be used for personal use in a home workshop.

A few words about the acetinol-oxygen cutting technique:

It is useful to have a basic understanding of how to prepare yourself and your workstation for work or how professionals prepare their workstations for work. The workstation must be equipped with:

  • Acetylene and oxygen gas cylinder
  • Acetylene-oxygen burner
  • Cylinder regulators
  • Oxygen and acetyl hose
  • And the whole set of parts needed for the burner

What is plasma?

It is ionised matter whose state of aggregation can resemble a gas. It consists of charged and electrically inert particles. Plasma contains ionised atoms and electrons, while the plasma volume is electrically inert. It is commonly referred to as the fourth state of matter.

What is plasma cutting?

It is the melting and ejection of material from a slit by means of a highly concentrated plasma arc, without the need for heating as in oxyfuel cutting. Plasma cutting makes it possible to cut all kinds of electrically conductive materials. Thanks to the continuous expansion of this method's functionality, it has become widespread and widely used. It is very efficient and fast, and is therefore beginning to replace oxygen cutting. Such rapid and powerful development of this method means that it is slowly conquering the market.

Advantages of plasma cutting:

  • Wide range of thicknesses that can be cut
  • Cutting at very high speed
  • No heating required
  • The cutting gap is small
  • Low costs
  • Excellent quality of material after cutting - does not destroy

Application of plasma cutting:

Above all, it is used to machine materials that conduct electricity, viz:

  • Black steel
  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminium

Such cutting is done manually, i.e. by hand, or mechanically

Who is the course designed for?

Anyone who would like to progress, wants to re-skill and is looking for work is welcome to attend the course.
