Flame Cutting

What Is Flame Cutting?

Flame cutting (also known as oxyfuel cutting) is a thermal cutting process using oxygen and a fuel source to create a flame with enough energy to melt and sever steel.

How It Works

To start, a neutral flame heats the steel up to its kindling temperature. Once this is reached, an additional high-flowing stream of oxygen is added to the flame and rapid oxidation takes place. Molten material is removed by gas pressure.
