ARTICLES

The Cost of Slag. Cutting Through the Buildup by Tony Mirisola, Power Tools Product Manager for TRUMPF Inc. Fabricating & Metalworking (Oct. 2013).

Cutting through the buildup: The time and money associated with managing slag is often mistaken as an unavoidable cost in laser cutting operations. But once you realize the full impact that slag has on your laser cutting process, there are ways to cut costs... by cutting through the slag. Read more.

How to Increase Bandsaw Productivity by Don Armstrong, National Sales Manager for Marvel Manufacturing

The typical bandsaw in an average machine shop faces challenges that other machine tools do not. First of all, unlike a lathe, a mill or a machining center, this saw is responsible for defining the part. Read more.

Steel Cutting N2 vs. O2: To use or not to use, that is the question by Shane Simpson, Product Manager, TRUMPF

When deciding to cut with oxygen versus nitrogen, it is important to consider the many factors involved. Laser power, laser type (solid state or CO2), cutting speeds, gas consumption, gas costs, material thickness, edge quality, and secondary operations all contribute to this decision. Read more

Purchasing a cold saw: will the long-term production outweigh the upfront cost? by Mike Albrecht (Scotchman Industries, Dec. 2011)

For more than twenty years, Scotchman Industries in Philip, South Dakota, has been building heavy-duty circular cold saws.  With thirteen machines on their current line, the metal fabricating equipment company has a cold saw for every possible operation.  Deciding if a cold saw is the right machine for you, however, depends on several factors. Read more.

Laser vs. Plasma by Jason Curtis (Icon Machine Tool, Oct. 2008)

CUT QUALITY: While the definition of “cut quality” can vary and is usually determined by the customer, laser is commonly recognized as the better of the two processes when it comes to quality. Laser machines offer superior part accuracy as they are capable of delivering cuts at very high tolerances. Read more

Flexible Cutting Solutions (Laser compared with Waterjet) by Clyde Braviere (Icon Machine Tool, Nov. 2008)

In an industry as competitive as sheet and plate metal fabricating, it is becoming more difficult to set your business apart from the rest. Your customers are placing higher demands on shops to be more competitive on price, lead times, and quality. The most successful companies are staying ahead of the game by adding the most technologically advanced CO2 lasers and abrasive waterjets (AWJ) on the market. While lasers and waterjets have been used in the industry for years, the daunting question for engineers, estimators, and shop owners is which of these technologies makes the most sense for their projects. Read more

How to Choose a Bandsaw by Jeff Hall (Icon Machine Tool, March 2009)

What material will I be cutting? Different material types require different cutting techniques. For instance, aluminum needs a much higher blade speed. Other material types require slower speeds. You may need to adjust speeds on the fly to optimize the blade life. Most saws today come with a variable speed motor to match the blade speed, blade type, and material type to provide the best results. Read more

2009 Section 179 Tax Incentives Explained by Jason Curtis (Icon Machine Tool, May 2009)

As you have probably heard by now, the US Government has passed several laws that provide businesses with“Tax Incentives” if they purchase equipment. These tax benefits are obviously intended to stimulate our struggling economy, but at the same time encourage small businesses to reinvest in themselves and improve how efficiently they operate – making them more competitive and successful. Well it all sounds great – but what are these “tax incentives”?? What is the actual benefit if you purchase equipment? How does it really work? Read more

Folding Technology Advancements by David Prokop, International Technologies (The Fabricator and Fabricators and Manufacturers Association, July 2009)

Today's folding technology can help bring a new level of efficiency and capability to a metal forming operation. Among the enhancements in modern folding systems are increased automation and gauging capabilities and the ability to fold an even wider range of materials. Read more

 

Laser Processing CO2 Laser by TRUMPF Inc (2/2007) - Download this whitepaper to learn more about the basic concepts of laser technology. You will also learn how the TRUMPF CO2 resonator is designed, beam formation and guidance, cutting processes, and criteria for evaluation of laser cuts. Read more

Which Laser for Which Cut by Anke Roser, TRUMPF GmbH +Co. KG (posted 8-1-2011) - Download this whitepaper to learn how to choose the best laser source for the type of material you are cutting. Today you have three primary choices of resonators: one micron disk fiber resonator, ten micron CO2 resonator, or the Coax fusion-cooled resonator. Each has its advantages based upon the job you are doing. Read more
