ON THE EDGE – Exploring Plasma Bevel Cutting for Automatic Weld Edge Preparation

According to field studies, up to 50 percent of parts produced throughout the CNC cutting industry worldwide require beveled edges for welding. If these reports are any indication, and they are, fabricators that plan on remaining viable in today’s market should also
plan on implementing or enhancing their bevel cutting operations.

Despite rising demand, however, many manufacturers, fab shops, job shops and metal service centers lack cutting machines, including plasma machines, equipped with beveling tool stations. Often this is traced to a general lack of awareness regarding the possibilities, availability and reliability of contemporary beveling tool stations. Today’s advanced beveling tool stations deliver greater precision along with significant savings of production time and capacity and these benefits can easily outweigh the initial investment.
