Steel plate piercing with GCE FIT+®

Machine Cutting Image 2

Machine Cutting ImageGCE machine cutters and nozzles give many benefits to users. The latest GCE development results in creation of innovative range of Tool-Free equipment which is represented by GCE FIT+® cutting system. Heating and cutting nozzles are fixed in the torch head by bayonet-lock without using wrenches, just with operator’s hand. One of the main benefits is possibility of hole piercing by oxy-fuel technology into the steel plates up to 150 mm thickness (*). With setting of proper parameters recommended by GCE the machine can pierce the plate smoothly and safe for the equipment and environment without expensive mechanical pre-drilling.

Material preheating, piercing process start, creation of the hole and cut-through. Focussed flame energy, robust heating nozzle and integrated Coolex® system increase the number of the hole-piercing quantity done by one set of consumables.

(*)Trained operator, proper process parameters, good cutting machine and quality and clean steel plate are required.
