Burning of Plate
Plasma cutting is a process that combines electrical current passing through a gas to produce an intense focused “plasma” flame that is very efficient in cutting all types of metal, aluminum, copper, stainless steel and other exotic metals. Plasma tables are designated by the amperage of the power source and the size of the plate […]
CUTTING EQUIPMENT (Shearing)
Hydraulic shears are designed for straight cutting steel plate. They use a set of four sided matched knives to shear the metal plate ranging from thin gauge to upwards of ¾” thick. The idea of shearing seems simple, but the forces of compression and then fracture of a steel edge require an in depth understanding […]
Structural Rolling & Plate Rolling
Plate rolls are for rolling plate into various curved shapes. The most common types of rolls are pyramid (3 rollers) or pinch rolls (4 rollers) and are available in various widths. Structural rolls are used to form a variety of structural shapes such as channels, beam etc.
A hydraulic press brake is a forming machine. They are described by the maximum tonnage they can produce and the maximum length of the part that can fit on the bed. Hydraulic rams produce the forces required to move an upper die into a lower die in order to accurately form carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and various other types of metal.
