Tubular USA is finding ways to increase their productivity using Scotchman saws.
Today’s high definition plasma systems are capable of cutting metal up to 6 inches thick.
A tungsten electrode and “stack up” from 1970’s (top) and modern hafnium electrode (bottom).
Designed for cutting bundles of solids, structurals and tubes, Simonds’ IC Enduro 3, like other blades, requires a rich coolant mix that sticks to the blade.
Technical advances have led to some overlap between these two processes, but the fundamental advantages of each remain intact. This comparison by two experts reviews the basics and updates the range of applications for laser and waterjet.
Today’s high-definition plasma systems provide good-quality cuts and fast cut speeds, while also delivering long consumable life.
To cut tough exotic metals like Hastelloy, Inconel and others, it takes the correct saw, know how and the right blade.
There are two ways to maximize consumables life and lower the operating cost of an automated plasma cutter.
Advances in technology that affect cut quality, productivity and cost per foot of cut
