ECONOMIC ASPECTS, QUALITY AND INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE BY PLASMA CUTTING IN MILD STEEL AND STAINLESS STEEL
The investigation was undertaken to see whether the development of burners and nozzles in recent years had resulted in sufficient improvements that plasma cutting could be used for square cutting in mild steel for subsequent welding. The economic and quality studies included optimum cutting speed determination, nozzle and electrode service life and metallurgical tests. The industrial hygiene studies included development of an efficient system for the removal of impurities in the form of smoke and gases, measurement of sound and light emission, and electrical safety.
