    • The thermal cutting of steel is the cutting out of forms (products) from steels plates by means of heat. The heat required is supplied by a jet of burning gas. The addition of extra oxygen causes the burning of the material in a narrow kerf and removes the slag. This, in short, is what happens with oxyfuel cutting.

      Alternatively, the required heat (energy) can be generated by electricity (an electric arc), forming an ionised gas (plasma) that melts the material in a narrow kerf. The molten material is blown away by a gas stream. This, in short, is what happens with plasma cutting.

    • You can give us the product specifications in different ways if you wish to receive a quotation. For simple products, like rectangular plates or rings without extra holes and/or chamfers, you can simply specify the main dimensions, steel grade and numbers of products you require in an email. For more complex products you can send scans of drawings on paper or CAD files.
      If you have any questions or need a consultation, our work planners will be happy to assist you.

    • Avezaat Staal performs both oxyfuel and plasma cutting.

    • Our CNC machines have a cutting range of 24 meters x 4 meters. Cutting is carried out in thicknesses from 3 to 600 mm. If you would like to know whether we can deliver products in the dimensions you need, please contact our work planners directly. They will be happy to inform you about all the available options.

    • If you need products in a special grade of steel, for example, for a specific application requiring:

      • wear-resistant steel, such as HB400, HB450, HB500
      • heat-resistant steel, such as P265GH, P355NL
      • high strength steel (steel with an increased tensile strength), such as S690 QL1, S960QL, S1100

      then we can help.
      Our work planners will be able to tell you immediately which thicknesses of the required steel grade we have in stock.

    • A large group of well-known steels grades, including structural steel, wear-resistant steel, heat-resistant steel and steel with a high tensile strength, are kept in stock in various thicknesses, and can therefore be cut almost immediately. Look here for the overview of the steel in stock.

    • The choice between plasma cutting or autogenous cutting is determined by the thickness of the material, the number of products and the required dimensions. Based on this data, our work planners will select the most cost-effective cutting method. The dimensional tolerances for plasma cutting and autogenous cutting are the same and are laid down in NEN-EN-ISO 9013 tolerance class 2.

    • The maximum thickness for plasma cutting is 40 mm.
      The maximum thickness for flame cutting is 600 mm.

    • The tolerances stated in NEN-EN-ISO 9013 tolerance class 2 apply for both plasma cutting and flame cutting.
