Abstract:

Laboratory and Industrial experience in the use of plasma generators showed that the use of the concentrated arc for cutting Cu and its alloys makes possible an increase in the productivity of the work by a factor of 15 to 20 as compared with existing methods. It considerably reduces the amount of metal which goes into scrap, since the width of the cut in cutting with the concentrated arc is a half or a third of that of mechanical cutting. Author
