Flame cutting is an old method of hot cutting. The thickness of the cut metal is from 1 mm to 1 m. However, when the thickness of most low carbon steel plates that you need to cut is less than 20 mm, other cutting methods should be used. . Flame cutting is the use of high temperatures occurring during the incineration of iron oxide to cut carbon steel. The flame torch is designed to incinerate iron oxide to supply sufficient oxygen to ensure excellent cutting action.

CNC flame cutting is mainly suitable for the cutting and processing of medium and heavy plates. Compared with other similar hot cutting methods, CNC flame cutting has high cutting quality, good cutting plane perpendicularity and large cutting thickness. And so on, it is currently used in the domestic market as a wide range of cutting processing methods.

Its main advantages are as follows:

1, the cutting thickness is large

In the actual processing application, the processing thickness of flame cutting ranges from 6 to 200 mm, and the gas pipe and torch cutting nozzle are replaced, and the cutting thickness can reach 350 mm. In order to improve the cutting quality better, the relevant process parameters will be slightly different when using flame cutting for different thickness materials.

2, the cutting plane has a high verticality

Different from the V-shaped cutting surface caused by the plasma arc of the CNC plasma cutting machine, the vertical cutting degree of the cutting surface of the CNC flame cutting machine is generally higher, the inclination can be controlled below 2-3°, and the characteristic is that it has a certain thickness for 10mm or more. On the board cutting, the performance is better.

3, high cutting quality

In general, the use of flame cutting is mostly used for medium and heavy plate cutting. The thickness of similar materials is above 20mm. In this thickness, the material is cut within 100mm thickness because it is not easy to change and the perforation operation is very easy to block the cutting nozzle. It can be cut from the edge of the steel plate. When cutting in the speed range of 0-700mm/min, the width of the slit can be kept within 2mm. At the same time, the automatic height control system is equipped to keep the torch height stable throughout the cutting process.

The CNC flame cutting machine popular in the market today can cut low carbon steel plates of 6mm or more, and can realize all the opposite sex cutting, and has strong versatility. The application of CNC cutting machine in the blanking section not only fully embodies the advantages of cutting automation and centralized cutting, but also greatly improves the utilization rate of the board, and further improves the cutting quality and production efficiency.

Although there are many benefits, there are still many customers who are puzzled by the quality of the cuts of different thickness plates. How do we adjust the cutting speed, cutting gas pressure, etc? Are there different requirements at the starting point of the cut? The following CNC cutting machine manufacturers give you some explanations.

Plates with different thicknesses should be selected with different cutting speeds, cutting gas pressures and different cutting nozzle models. Thin plates with a thickness of 6-20mm are not easily cut from the edge of the steel plate when starting to cut the parts due to heat variability. The perforation cutting method is adopted to make the margin of the steel plate closed, and the slit is kept at a certain interval from the margin of the steel plate, so as to prevent the deviation of the dimension of the part caused by thermal denaturation.

For 20-100mm plates, it is not easy to change when cutting, and the slag slag is easy to block the cutting nozzle. Therefore, this condition is easy to cut from the margin of the steel plate. When the thick plate is subjected to numerical control active gas cutting, the cutting surface is often vertical. The quality problem is not enough. At this time, it is mainly to ensure the flatness of the header and the flatness of the cut sheet.

The above several cutting techniques can effectively improve the dimensional accuracy and cutting efficiency of the CNC flame cutting when cutting various plates of different thicknesses. Of course, the operation skills of the operating technician are also related to the quality of the CNC flame cutting and cutting.
