This feature is important in cutting medical devices, electronics and fine mechanics components from thin materials with features that are too small to allow for piercing the drop-out scrap portion of the material.
Although power ramping has proven to be highly beneficial, it is often underutilized on the shop floor because fabricators either do not understand its benefits or they just don’t know how to use it. By simply applying the given values and principles presented here, they will see a visible improvement in corner and radii cut quality.
This shop welded the seam and cut 100 million holes in 12,100 torches – in six months. That's not all. Check out the automotive parts they're making.
