Flame Cutting

Flame cuttingEldred Sheet Metal Works, LLC offers CNC flame cutting services. Eldred can flame cut your parts up to 3 inches thick from carbon steel materials. Flame cutting, also known as oxyfuel cutting, is the process of using a combustible gas such as acetylene or propane to heat carbon metal to a high temperature and then applying pure oxygen to force the molten metal away from the cutting path. Eldred can flame cut any flat layout pattern. Eldred operates a 120” X 240” CNC Flame Cutting Table.

The flame cutting process starts with the customer’s drawing or specifications. Eldred takes those drawings or specifications and converts the drawing to an electronic DXF file. The programmer programs the drawings and sends the electronic DXF file to the CNC flame cutting machine. The flame cutting operator downloads the DXF File for cutting, squares the material and torch head, and runs program. The torch head follows the desired program path providing a clean smooth cut. Our software program allows us to nest parts of all shapes and sizes on a single sheet to increase productivity and reduce cost. Eldred can handle large runs or just a single piece to be cut.
