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.

Metal cutting technologies: 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:

ZINSER Switch Bevel

A ZINSER innovation: plasma and oxy-fuel bevel cutting on a single unit

This is the bevel unit of the future, developed by ZINSER. It combines plasma cutting and flame cutting, allows angles of up to 60 degrees, for material thicknesses up to 300mm.

Plasma bevel cutting

ZINSER bevel head

The automatically rotating one-torch bevel cutting head Bevel 2014 allows plasma bevel cuts of contours, too. It is fully programmable thus enabling the cutting of parts with bevels as well as vertical cutting edges.

Technical data

After the installation of the bevel head and first practical experience, we recommend an advanced ZINSER expert training on site with the objective to increase the efficiency by exchange of experiences with our experts.

Hypertherm True Bevel for XPR

Hypertherm plasma sources

Hypertherm‘s True Bevel™ technology was launched in 2012 with the HPRXD® family of products. It is now also offered on Hypertherm’s XPR™ systems.

Factory-tested and easily implemented, True Bevel™ takes the guess work out of the plasma bevel cutting process. With True Bevel™, setups for new jobs are quick and results are accurate.

The True Bevel™ technology works with the ZINSER bevel head and covers V, A, Top-Y, X and K style cuts for mild steel.
