Saw Cut Steel
DME offers different ways to cut steel:
Saw Cutting: Saw cut plate and bar stock within .06 of specified dimensions
Flame Cutting: Flame cutting is referred to by various names, these include: oxyacetylene cutting, oxy-fuel cutting, and oxy cutting. This process relies on fuel gases and oxygen to cut through steel (and other metals).
Plasma Cutting: Similar to flame cutting, plasma cutting shoots a high speed jet of ionized gas through an opening. This gas is being both superheated and electrically ionized by the electrical channel. This forms a completed circuit traveling back to the cutter through a grounding clamp. The ionized gas is referred to as plasma. As more electricity is added, the higher the temperature of the plasma. The plasma arc created this way is able to super heat the metal while the gas simultaneously blows away the melted material.
Waterjet Cutting: DME’s high-pressure waterjet cutting uses water that is compressed up to approximately 60,000 psi. The process creates a precise and powerful cutting tool which has the added benefit of causing NO heat damage or material distortion to the steel.
