  • The Benefits of Shearing: What You Should Know

    The Benefits of Shearing: What You Should Know0

    There are different processes available for cutting metal. Some manufacturing companies use torch cutting, whereas others use plasma cutting. Torch and plasma cutting both revolve around heat to slide through metal. Another cutting process, however, is shearing. Shearing supports many of the same materials as torch and plasma cutting. With that said, shearing offers some

    5 Benefits of Water Jet Cutting0

    Water jet has become a popular alternative to traditional cutting processes. It doesn’t require the use of cutting shears, nor does it use heat. Rather, water jet cutting uses a concentrated stream of high-pressure water to slice through workpieces with extreme precision. Being that it’s used for many of the same applications as other cutting

    5 Advantages of Laser Cutting in Manufacturing0

    Cutting is a common process performed in the manufacturing industry. Materials, as well as preassembled workpieces, often require cutting. While some manufacturing companies use cutting shears, others use newer and more advanced methods, such as laser cutting. Laser cutting lives up to its namesake by exposing materials and workpieces to a high-powered laser, thus cutting

    What Is an Alligator Shear?0

    Shearing machines are used by manufacturing companies to cut sheet metal, as well as other materials and workpieces, with a straight blade. The sheet metal is secured below the cutting blade, after which the cutting blade drops down to cut through it. There are many different types of shearing machines, however, one of which is

    CO2 vs Nd Laser Cutting: What’s the Difference?0

    Not all cutting processes involve the use of a physical cutting tool. While lathes and milling machines do, in fact, use a physical cutting tool, laser machines do not. Laser cutting is a cutting process in which a machine projects a focused beam of light onto a workpiece to selectively cut in the workpiece in

    Plasma vs Laser Cutting: What’s the Difference?0

    The terms “plasma cutting” and “laser cutting” are often used interchangeably when referring to the use of hot, high-powered light to cut through workpieces. While similar, though, they aren’t necessarily the same. Plasma cutting and laser cutting use entirely different mechanisms to perform cutting processes. So, what’s the difference between plasma cutting and laser cutting
