Cutting parts in construction engineering for example for bridges, stadiums, airports and process plants, or buildings usually means working either in huge prefabrication halls or on the construction site. These jobs involve big parts and long cuts, so lightweight, robust and easy to handle cutting equipment is important. The powerful cutting solutions must realize a very high productivity, whereas the appearance of the cut is often not that important. The most important cutting processes for medium thick mild steel profiles, plates and tubes are plasma cutting and oxy-fuel cutting.
Solutions for construction steel, stainless steel, aluminum of different grades and alloys
Plasma is the most common steel-cutting process for steel components of skyscrapers or preproduction of building elements, or special tasks like elevator cabins. Plasma cutting is suitable for a wide range of materials including steel, stainless steel, armored steel, galvanized steel and aluminum. THERMACUT® plasma cutting solutions can also be used for cutting hard construction steel with higher plate thickness fast and precisely. When very thick plates are made of non-alloy or low-alloy steel, THERMACUT® oxy-fuel solutions offer the most efficient process. THERMACUT® plasma and oxy-fuel cutting solutions satisfy a wide variety of needs: flexible, manual solutions and portable CNC-systems suit smaller cutting tasks, while full mechanized solutions excel for bigger and repeating tasks.
