PANTOGRAPH CUTTING (OXY CUTTING)
Pantograph cutting, also known as oxy cutting, is a process that uses an oxygen jet to cut the sheets.
Also called flame cutting, oxy cutting is based on the principle according to which when a ferrous metal is brought to its melting point and a thin jet of oxygen is added, a progressive, mechanically guided process of self-combustion is triggered, cutting the sheets apart. The torch is either hand-operated by qualified personnel or mounted on computerised pantographs, with constant feed speed and flow regulators.
