Trustpilot profile

Oxy-fuel cutting systems

The Oxyfuel process is the most widely applied industrial thermal cutting process because it can cut thicknesses from 0.5mm to 250mm.

The equipment is low cost and can be used manually or be mechanised.

There are several fuel gas and nozzle design options that can significantly enhance performance in terms of cut quality and cutting speed.

The cutting process is illustrated in oxyfuel torch. A mixture of oxygen and fuel gas is used to preheat the metal to its 'ignition' temperature which, for steel, is 700°C - 900°C (bright red heat) but well below its melting point. A jet of pure oxygen is then directed into the preheated area instigating a vigorous exothermic chemical reaction between the oxygen and the metal to form iron oxide or slag. The oxygen jet blows away the slag enabling the jet to pierce through the material and continue to cut through the material.

Manufactures will frequently try to use their existing cutting equipment, rather than purchase new equipment. If it is necessary to purchase new equipment, manual oxy-gas or air-arc equipment is the cheapest, approximately £1k for a manual cutter, £9000 for a basic mechanise profile machine, whereas laser cutting systems can require considerable capital expenditure from £100k to £500k.

Call us today for impartial advice from all the leading brands of Profile and Plasma Cutting equipment:
ESAB, Messer, Hypertherm, Esprit, ACS, Techserv, Burny, Westinghouse, Farley, Koike plus many more.
A scanner for simplicity
Scanning systems (magic eye) set up with oxy-acetylene or plasma application cutting an appropriate sheet of around 8x4 is the most simple choice. These optical cutting machines have photoelectric control. The machine is designed for high accuracy in cutting and there is no need of metal templates. The magic eye/photoelectric tracer (ratio 1:1) can follow template silhouettes or line drawings with ease. For those who want more out of the profile cutter we can sell a machine that comes with both scanner and a CNC system.  Machines can be equipped with up to 6 manual or motorised gas cutting torches thus making it suitable or either for one of batch production of mass production. There are many small cantilever types of profile cutting machine which are ideal for the smaller workshops and for those who want an easy to use template type cutting machine. Our machines in stock come in a variety of cutting widths, normally a minimum of 1.5 meters. The cutting length can be altered to suit and often increased to any length by extending the machine.
Portal CNC Cutting machine
The Portal Gantry type profile cutting machine is now very popular can be supplied bespoke just for you.  Fitted with CNC, these are dual driven and can be suitable for oxy-acetylene or plasma cutting applications. Taking up less space than the cantilever machine, this type of plate cutting machine comes in all sizes.
CNC Profile Cutting machines
The CNC cutting machines we sell are normally fitted with a Burny Etek system (Burny 2.5, Burny 5, Burny 10, Burny Replicator). These are reliable and easy to use units with 50 standards shapes contained in the memory or they can receive the information from an office PC with CAD software.
Westermans supply CAD drawing packages to suit the Burny systems and provide tuition and training to any number of workshop staff.
Motorised cutting posts with auto height sensing is available for oxy-fuel or plasma torches. Depending on the size of the machine 1 - 6 cutting posts can be fitted.
99% of our machines can be supplied with a choice of plasma cutter, either new or used. Price would be dependent on the cutting thickness and materials involved. Talk to us about your requirements, and we will offer free advice and extensive knowledge.
Upgrade and Retro Fit
The majority of machines supplied can be ungraded later and retro fitted with CNC controllers, additional torches or just fully serviced to meet Health and Safety requirements.  See here more details about refurbishment on your existing profile cutting machine here.
