Ask Kurt about: "Fit for Future"
Have you experienced problems when manually igniting your Oxy-Fuel torches?
Any burnt hands?
If you've answered Yes to any of these questions and want to know what you can do about it,
come and visit us at
SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN,
the International trade fair for
Joining Cutting + Surfacing,
in Düsseldorf in September (25-29)
Hall 13, Stand A 31
Fact N°4 Oxy-Fuel needs more automation
Fact N°3 Oxy-Fuel produces high quality cuts
Of course you do have to be looking at parts cut in a production environment made from industrial quality steel and not those made on an exhibition stand to amuse the visitors clutching their giveaways!
Fact N° 2: Oxy fuel really is being used to cut thin plates
Fact N° 1: Oxy-Fuel doesn't cost the earth
We can also see from this graph that Oxy-Fuel cutting for sheet thicknesses from 20 mm is very cost effective. And the more torches you have, the greater the savings.
Four Facts about Oxy-Fuel cutting that you may think you are probably not going to believe:
But why has no-one mentioned Good Old Oxy-Fuel, whereabouts does that figure in today's cutting league? Some call it old and past it, or that it can only be used where there are people around to make it work properly.
Let us compare Oxy-Fuel and Plasma.
To pierce or to drill? That is the question
Oxy-fuel three burner unit and distance measurement
First, a constant distance is extremely important for a clean cut and secondly exist extremely high temperatures in triple torch burner units.
With the PLATE SENSOR IHT Automation provides here an approach for solving this problem. The electrode is air-cooled and this air flow makes sure that the distance measurement is only minimally affected by the cutting flame and the dielectric.
The sensor system CSC 500 ensures that the set distance is measured correctly and the motor controller of the linear drive delivers a precise signal.
