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.
