What thermal cutting is - definition
Thermal cutting as a definition refers to a technique in which heat is used to separate materials. The material is heated by heat until it reaches the melting or decomposition point. This results in a cut or separation point on the solid body of the material to be separated.
Review of CNC cutting machines 2021/2022
List of the most popular plasma, oxygen and water CNC cutting machines. Do you know which one answers your need?
Modernisation as an alternative for purchasing new machine
Modern and up-to-date companies outran each other in equipping and improving their machine parks. It’s worth knowing if there are alternative solutions that help avoid unnecessary costs.
Plasma vs fiber laser. Advantages, disadvantages, estimated costs.
CNC cutting machines market is currently divided into two dominant methods of separating material: plasma cutting and laser. Regarding their similarities and possibilities they are often compared. This article helps you decide which one to choose.
What should be done to run plasma cutting process properly?
Plasma is one of the most popular method of material separation. Purchase and exploitation costs are relatively low, while cutting is fast and precise. Although, there are key features that reduce the efficiency and increase possibility of failure.
Novelties in the field of cutting and processing profiles. ESP system & SPA function.
Solutions offered by Eckert company bring new quality of profile cutting. Cutting and processing as well as making through-holes are significatnly improved and precise as ever.
The rule of operation and the use of an oxygen-acetylene torch in industry
What is an oxy-acetylene torch used for? Oxy-acetylene torches using the gas cutting method are one of the most popular tools for separating metals with low-alloy and low-carbon properties. The process of cutting metal consists in bringing it to a temperature at which it burns on contact with the torch and volatizes in the form of metal oxide. Such an effect is possible only thanks to the use of appropriately constructed torches that can mix oxygen with specific proportions of combustible gas.
Industry 4.0 concept – requirements towards users in the age of 4th industrial revolution
Discover the world of the latest changes and technologies introducted along with the 4th industrial revolution. Solutions offered by the leader of the CNC trades will suprise you with its innovation!
What is worth to know about plasma cutting?
Plasma cutting is surely the most popular CNC cutting technology. Due to many years of our experience in machine construction and manufacturing we decided to present some advices for plasma cutting. Our base were problems which we met in daily work. We hope they can make easier machine operators work and will incline to better caring for cutting machine.
Composites cutting via CNC cutting machines
CNC cutting machines are generally associated with metal parts tooling…or eventually with stone parts tooling. However, two cutting technologies - waterjet cutting and laser cutting allow tooling of more kinds of materials. Interesting example are plastics. They are used in industry more and more often, mainly because of their features. Very desirable are materials which keep high strength level but still stay light and flexible. What are they in tooling process? Is it possible to cut them alike? For presenting problem interestly, there are submitted few examples of composite materials below.
Situation and development trends in the sector of CNC cutting machines
CNC cutting machines only outwardly do not change. In fact, this sector is strongly based on innovations which are still implemented in new devices. However for this time there is no chance to appearing new cutting technology, development focuses on optimizing of parameters which decide about attractiveness of device for user. The best solutions are included by patents because they warrant achieving of uniqueness of producer and have influence for competitors.
I would like to buy the fiber laser cutting machine - how and why?
What is the reason that more and more entrepreneurs decide to buy cutting machines that cut in fiber laser technology? Just one thing is certain - the price is no reason in this case. The cost of this kind of machine is the highest. So it must offer some possibilities that make it technology leader.
What do you need to know before buying a waterjet cutting machine?
The waterjet cutting technology is getting more and more popular. It delivers a lot of possibilities that are not achieved with other cutting technologies. The important advantage is for the example lack of heat affected zone. Thanks to that water can cut almost every type of material.
Non-ferrous metals cutting
For cutting non-ferrous metals, you can use several common technologies, like laser, plasma or water (hydroabrasive) cutting. To choose the right one you should analyze thickness of the material, required precision and of course economic aspects.
For cutting plastic, depending on the type of material we can offer our customers such cutting technologies as laser or water (hydroabrasive) cutting.
