Cutting method of steel plates

The steel plate cutting methods used in our daily work are various, mainly divided into cold cutting processing and hot cutting processing. In cold cutting, water flow cutting or ordinary shearing can be used. It can be used for thermal cutting, such as flame cutting, plasma cutting or laser cutting. Different steel plate cutting methods can be selected according to the thickness and material of the steel plate. The thickness of the steel plate is the most important factor affecting the cutting of the steel plate.
The following details how to cut steel plates of different thicknesses.
First of all, let us first understand what the thickness of the steel plate is? According to the different thickness, we can divide the steel plate into thin plate (0.2mm-4mm), medium plate (4mm-60mm) and thick plate (> 60mm).
It is also very important to choose the method of cutting steel plates of different thicknesses. For example, when cutting into regular thin steel plates such as rectangles and triangles, you can choose a shearing machine, which not only has a fast speed, quality assurance, but also low cost. In addition to the shearing machine, the cost of flame cutting is not high in our common steel plate cutting method, and the operation is more flexible and free, which can cut steel plates of different shapes. However, it is easy to cause deformation when cutting thin steel plates, the variety of cutting materials is limited, and the technical requirements are relatively higher.
The cost of laser cutting is relatively higher, because the price of a laser cutting equipment is higher than other equipment, so the cost will be relatively increased. However, the precision of laser cutting is very high, which can meet the needs of some customers with high accuracy requirements. In the case of oxygenation, laser cutting can satisfy a steel plate with a thickness of 20 mm.
Compared with the above cutting method, water jet cutting is different in cutting environment. The cutting range is wide, the accuracy is high, it is not easy to deform, and it is environmentally friendly, but the speed is slow and the energy consumption is large. We can depend on the situation. We Xinsteel Industrial Co.,Ltd can cut steel plate into various dimension according to your request with shearing machine cutting, flame cutting, laser cutting or water jet cutting.
