steels are easy to cut and can be cut with different cutting methods. The surface quality of Raex®
is optimized using state-of-the-art techniques during rolling, which guarantees an excellent product outlook but also brings an outstanding laser cutting properties for the product. An additional advantage of Raex®
products is less need for preheating which will speed up fabrication for the users and in the field.
steels can be cut using different cutting methods, the most popular ones being plasma and flame cutting. Users can select the cutting method based on the requirements for the cut edge or the material itself. In special cases when high hardness is required on the edge, water jet likely offers the best solution. If high precision is important but heat input is not so relevant, laser cutting makes a great choice for Raex®
With the smooth cut edge quality, edge finishing time can be minimized during manufacturing. Parts can be sent directly to the next phase in the value chain without incurring extra costs. In addition, less need for preheating also brings cost efficiency, not only for the workshops but also when cutting onsite. Some thicknesses preheating is the best choice before cutting but an alternative option is also to adjust cutting speed.
