Plasma cut /gouge and cast iron

Postby olek » Sat Jun 17, 2017 7:48 am

Hello,

I did read that plasma cutting do deform the less the pieces if compared with other crude methods.

I wonder if on cast iron it will generate less white hardened iron than cutting disk ?

I am wondering if the process, by immediate ejection of the melted metal, do not allow a less deep heat penetration, or some sort of cooling because air replace the metal.

Do you have some informations ? I will ask one or 2 specialized compagnies I think I will have an answer, unless it is evident in some way.

Gouging electrodes do not burn the metal as much as plasma, I was said.

Regards

Also, gouging electrodes are proposed for iron weld solutions. (Not arcair but I don't know for sure )

I use carbide mill bits for iron but if I want to get rid of a hardened Zone to replace it with FeNi metal what would be the best process ? (Carbide drills will just wear off)

Olek,

Perhaps with this question you would do well to post it in French, and allow one of or Quebecois members to translate? I'm having difficulty understanding the question.

Thank you Otto.

Sorry for my limited English. I ask if it may be an option to use a cheap plasma cutter to open cracks in iron.

If it burn the iron , obviously it is not.

Thanks
