Metal Cutting Techniques – An Analogy
We are gonna see a simple analogy of the most used and efficient Metal Cuttingtechnologies which is being used in the industry like plasma, waterjet, oxyfuel, laser andso on.First we are starting the comparison of 
Oxyfuel Cutting
. With this technique of metalcutting, a torch is being used to heat the metal to great temperature. The strong flow of oxygen that is poured over the metal counters with the metal surface in which we areworking on with a chemical reaction- oxidizes the steel on which we are working and puffing it away to structure the cut that we are aiming for. In fact an interesting thing hereis the heat formed during this process is a byproduct of the method. Oxyfuel is a metalcutting process that is for the most part used for cutting out mild steel which would be of 3/8 in. to 12 in. in thickness. This is a technology that is not well thought-out to beimpractical for metals such as aluminum or stainless steel, save for that they can be usedfor metal like that of titanium. This is a technique that has an extremely huge heat-affected region when it is put side by side and compared with the other metal cuttingtechnologies that is in practice. Next we are gonna see about the
, one of the widely used techniques for  best cutting results. What happens when gas is heated to a very high temperature is it getsionized. At this particular moment this electrically conductive ionized gas that resultsturns out to be an extremely high energized substance called
plasma
. In plasma cutting process a high-velocity powerful stream of plasma is showed on to the metal piece that isto be worked on, at this point an electrical arc is carried along with it. The energy thatactually melts and blows out the metal is the heat of the arc as well as the stream of ionized gas that blows away the molten metal away. For the purpose of this analogy, ahigh-density plasma system which is also known to be a high-definition systems is beenused. Plasma cutting is a technology that gives way to a best resultant cut on the metal for
