Otto Klostermann offers solutions using the oxy-fuel cutting method

Sheet metal is locally heated to ignition temperature

Otto Klostermann GmbH also offers its customers solutions involving the oxy-fuel cutting method. This process consists in heating the sheet locally to ignition temperature by means of a fuel gas oxygen-flame and burning it in the oxygen jet to form a kerf. The flammability requirement is basically met in the case of unalloyed and low-alloy steels. The ignition temperature is the temperature where the released heat of reaction is higher than the heat radiated during the same time.

Technical data of the oxy-fuel systems:

Plant 1

up to 6,800 x 56,000 x 60/300 mm
with 2 gantries
a vertical torch
two oxy-fuel torch heads

Plant 2

up to 6,800 x 28,000 x 60 // 300mm
a vertical torch

Pressure displaces iron oxide and the molten metal

The pressure of the cutting oxygen jet forces the iron oxide and molten metal toward the kerf and blows it out. A prerequisite for the formation of the kerf is that the melting temperature of the oxides is lower than the melting temperature of the material.

The modern oxy-fuel cutting system of Otto Klostermann GmbH allows extremely precise cutting even of complex parts.

Druck drängt Eisenoxid und die Metallschmelze ab

Durch den Druck des Schneidsauerstoffstrahles werden das Eisenoxid und die Metallschmelze in Richtung der Schnittfuge abgedrängt und ausgeblasen. Voraussetzung für das Entstehen der Schnittfuge ist, dass die Schmelztemperatur der Oxide unter der Schmelztemperatur des Werkstoffes liegen.

Das moderne Autogenschneidesystem der Otto Klostermann GmbH gestattet das äußerst präzise Schneiden auch komplexer Teile.
