Description

Application

Remarks

  • Cutting: With NFG metal sheet and plate up to 10mm thick can be metal-arc cut with ease, the electrode should be held at a shallow angle of about 15C to the surface of the plate With thicker plates an up-and-down motion should be made in the direction of thickness so that the molten metal and slag may run clear out of the cut
  • Grooving/gouging ? The force of the NFG arc removes the molten metal, by pushing it out in front of the groove, whilst a forward-and-backward motion. Where possible, the work piece should be inclined so that the molten metal can run free under the force of gravity
  • ? The speed of metal arc cutting is dependent upon the diameter of the electrode, current, and the plate thickness.
