MESSER plasma cutting – fast, accurate and high quality
Plasma cutting was originally developed for the thermal cutting of materials which were unsuitable for flame cutting, such as high alloy steels or Aluminum. Today, the process is also used for the economical cutting of thin, low alloyed steels.
The plasma cutting process, as used in the cutting of electrically conductive metals, utilises this electrically conductive gas to transfer energy from an electrical power source through a plasma cutting torch to the material being cut.
The basic plasma arc cutting system consists of a power supply, an arc starting circuit and a torch. These system components provide the electrical energy, ionisation capability and process control that is necessary to produce high quality, highly productive cuts on a variety of different materials.
- Plate thickness: 0,8 mm up to 160 mm
- Typical: 3 mm up to 75 mm
- High to very high cut quality
- Smooth, cutting surfaces
- Metallurgical perfect surfaces for welding
- Medium heat input
- Excellent cutting speed
- Low harding on cutting surface
MESSER laser cutting – highest quality, best accuracy
Basically when cutting with the laser the beam is focused on the material through the hole in the nozzle. This heats the material and melts it. A cutting gas, which flows co-axially through the nozzle, removes the molten material. Due to the small focus spot, laser cutting is known for its high accuracy.
The laser cutting process uses a strong focused laser beam. The high energy laser beam heats up the material. During the cutting process, an assistant gas is used to eject the molten material from the kerf. As a result, the cut quality and speed are very high compared to other cutting technologies.

MESSER OXYFUEL CUTTING – MOST ECONOMICAL PROCESS
Oxyfuel flame cutting is the most economical process for the cutting of mild and low alloy steels, even with weld preparations. It is one of the most important production processes in the metal industry.
Oxyfuel cutting is a combustion process using oxygen/fuel gas flame. The heating flame brings the material up to its ignition temperature. Then a jet of Oxygen at least 99,5 % pure is blown onto the heated spot. The Oxygen jet oxidizes the metal. The torch is moved and a narrow cutting kerf is created, removing the slag from the kerf. The quality of the cut depends on the surface condition of the material, cut-velocity and thickness.

- Typical: 10 mm up to 300 mm
- Good cut quality
- Smooth, vertical cutting surface
