Flame cutting is a process used to cut Steel. This process can also be called different names such as Oxygen & Acetylene cutting, Oxy-Acetylene cutting, Oxy Fuel Cutting and Steel Burning among many other terms. It is done by heating up the steel with a burning Flame that is generated at the end of a Torch head. This technology uses pure Oxygen, under high pressure that is combined with a gas-fuel, such as Acetylene, Propane, or Natural gas. This Flame produces intense Heat with the Oxygen-Fuel mixture, and additional High pressure Oxygen pushes or blows the melted steel out of the way as it moves over it and cuts through the steel, leaving a relatively smooth finish. A High Purity of Oxygen is needed to achieve the highest quality cut finish and this presents a potentially highly dangerous situation. All Federal Law and Safety requirements and procedures are regulated by OSHA, (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and can be found on their Web Site.

Plasma cutting is a process used to cut various metals such as Steel, Aluminum and Stainless Steel among many others. An Inert gas, such as Oxygen under high pressure is blown out of the plasma torch also known as the nozzle, combined with an electrical arc creates tremendous heat and plasma hot enough to melt the metal being cut. 

1. Shearing is a process to cut steel using two blades that move like scissors, leaving a clean but burred and somewhat compressed finished edge.

2. Saw cutting is a process using a steel blade with cutting teeth that moves across the steel surface creating small cut chips as each tooth cuts into the material leaving a smooth finish.

3. Flame cutting is a process used to cut Steel using Intense Heat with an Oxygen-Acetylene mixture, and additional High pressure Oxygen that blows melted steel out of the way as it moves and cuts, leaving a relatively smooth finish.

4. Plasma cutting is a process used to cut various metals such as Steel among many others. An Inert gas, such as Oxygen under high pressure is blown out of the plasma torch also known as the nozzle, combined with an electrical arc that creates tremendous heat and plasma hot enough to melt the metal being cut, leaving a smooth, precision type finish.

Miter cut is a process when two pieces of steel are beveled on one end and joined together to make a joint. Usually each end is cut or beveled at a 45 Degree angle, so when joined they will make a 90 Degree angle. A picture frame is a good example and can be made using four pieces of tubing and Miter cutting all ends of all pieces, then joining them.

Steel/Metal Punching is a very effective process for putting holes or slots in various types of metals. Using two Die tools made of hardened steel, a punch press machine, pushes a top Die through the material and through the bottom die, shearing out the hole or slot and creating a slug.

Galvanizing, also known as Hot Dip Galvanizing, is a process of coating Steel, Iron or Aluminum with Zinc, protecting the surface against corrosion in the outdoor elements. Material is dipped or immersed in a heated mixture of Zinc at over 800 degrees and then cooled to create a hardened barrier finish that looks like a crystallized grey or silver like color. This results in a strong barrier between the steel and the atmosphere establishing a very strong corrosion resistance surface. Once Galvanized, the material can still be welded, but the process of welding creates a substantial amount of Zinc fumes that can be very hazardous to your health.

1. Flame cutting process is an option used to cut Steel. This process can also be called different names such as Oxygen & Acetylene cutting, Oxy Acetylene cutting, Oxy Fuel Cutting and Steel Burning. This technology uses pure Oxygen, under high pressure that is combined with a gas-fuel, such as Acetylene, Propane, or Natural gas. This mixture is pushed under pressure through a Torch tip and burned to create Intense Heat, and additional High pressure Oxygen pushes or blows melted steel out of the way as it moves across it and cuts, leaving a relatively smooth finish.

2. Customer drawings and the use of CAD technology gives the ability to draw and cut almost any shape. CAD (Computer-aided design) files are sent wirelessly Flame Cutting machines for processing.

Blanchard Grinding , also known as Rotary Surface Grinding is a process performed to metal or steel that involves grinding back and forth on the flat surface of the material to remove imperfections and to finish the material to a precise thickness smaller than the original.
