Bevel Cutting

Bevel Cutting is the process of cutting a part with an edge that is not perpendicular to the top of the piece. This is done to increase the serface area of the edge for a stronger more secure weld.

The edges are descried throughout the industry by the English letter the cut most closely resembles when looking at a cross section. Common bevel types include V, A, X, Top Y, Bottom Y and K.

The head consists of 2 continuous axis working with the torch during the rotation of the A & C axis.

The torch supports turns on A axis and the intermediate support turns on C axis.

  • Bevelled edges are a necessity for weld preparation and other final assembly methods
  • Increased productivity demands combined with increasing labour costs and a shortage of experienced operators are leading companies to adopt automated bevel technologies
  • Automated technologies promise improved accuracy and repeatability for increased throughput
  • Setup time and scrap material are greatly reduced for new job setup due to reduced trial and error.
