Material Processing and Sourcing
Our full service material processing and source eliminates the need to supply your own steel or order custom sizes to be delivered. With multiple burn tables, we can efficiently size raw materials for production and cut plates to exact computer controlled dimensions.
Materials most commonly used include:
Our 200,000 square foot fabrication and machining facility is complete with overhead cranes and lifts to handle even the largest jobs. We are committed to providing the highest-quality work, on-time, every time to your complete satisfaction. The Versagraph Millennium is a Plasma/Oxy-Fuel Cutting Machine able to cut mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass and more. This machine is definitely packed with exciting features and benefits ready to increase efficiency, quality and your bottom-line profitability.
Plasma - Plasma is an effective means to cut both thin and thick materials. Our CNC plasma tables cut thick steel plate up to 5-inches thick and because plasma produces a hot and localized "cone" to cut, they're well suited to cut shapes, curves and beveled surfaces.
Koike HD Plasma Cutting
Our state-of-the-art, high-definition plasma cutting machine offers a maximum effective cutting size of 1-1/4" x 120" x 280" holding tolerances to within .030" on material 1-1/4" or less. Combined with the PEP technology inventory and nesting software, we get the best possible yield from the material while keeping track of all mtr`s and Certs.
A cutting torch head is used to cut materials. It is similar to a welding torch, but can be identified by the oxygen blow out trigger or lever. The metal is first heated by the flame until it is cherry red. Once this temperature is attained, oxygen is supplied to the heated parts by pressing the "oxygen-blast trigger". This oxygen reacts with the metal, forming iron oxide and producing heat. It is this heat that continues the cutting process. The cutting torch only heats the metal to start the process; further heat is provided by the burning metal.
