Maximizing Efficiency: Overcoming Internal Limitations in Cutting Processes

Plasma Cutting Predicaments

Plasma cutting, commonly used in metal fabrication and construction, encounters hurdles when faced with certain plate or sheet thicknesses. The limitations of many plasma cutters restrict them from more than approximately ¾” thick material. Beyond this threshold, outsourcing becomes the inevitable path. Moreover, the spatial constraints of plasma tables pose additional barriers. With common maximum dimensions often capped at 5’ wide x 10’ long, anything exceeding these dimensions requires external resources.

Saw Cutting Struggles

Similar constraints hinder saw-cutting operations, dictated by the type of saw, its capacity, and the range of sizes it can accommodate. The absence of a suitable saw on-site often forces reliance on torch-cutting methods, resulting in compromised quality and extended processing times.

Production Cutting Challenges

In the realm of production cutting, the challenge lies not only in managing large projects but also in accommodating smaller projects. Given capacity constraints, companies sometimes need help to complete smaller projects, leading to potential outsourcing needs.
