Bevel cutting

Bevel cutting with ZINSER

Bevel cutting means, that the cutting edge within the to-be-cut material is not forming a right angle with the material surface.

Cutting technology: bevel cutting

What is bevel cutting

Bevel cutting means, that the cutting edge within the to-be-cut material is not forming a right angle with the material surface.

Most common use for this cutting technique is the welding preparation, either to increase the welding seam surface, or to allow forming a(n) (right) angle between two to-be-welded pieces.

Depending on the form of the cutting edge when viewed from the side, bevel cuts are named by the latin character they resemble most, such as „V“, „A“, „X“, „Y“, and „K“.

This is how it works:

  • For plasma bevel cutting, ZINSER offers its inhouse-developed, innovative bevel unit, which allows continuously adjustable cutting angles between 0 and 50 degrees, CNC-controlled.
  • For oxy-fuel bevel cutting, ZINSER offers its triple torch unit, which also allows continuously adjustable cutting angles between 0 and 45 degrees.
