3D cutting is an automated process of cutting 3-dimensional forms on metal pipes, box sections and flat bars. The cutting is performed by plasma or oxyfuel depending on the thickness of the material.
Thanks to the weld preparation applied during the design & detailing stage, the parts are ready for optimized fitting and weld volume is greatly reduced, which results in significant savings in time and costs. Our 3D cutting capabilities opens a wide range of design possibilities:
Protective paints and other coatings cannot adhere to sharp material edges. Edge breaking is therefore applied for improving the surfaces for coating coverage and ultimately corrosion protection. There are two common ways fabricators use for edge breaking of beams and bars: chamfering and rolling.
The disadvantage of chamfering is the creation of new edges which still creates the same dispel effect of liquid coating by the high surface tension. This makes edge rounding a preferred process compared to chamfering.
