FineCut consumables, everything you need to know about cutting thin metals
FineCut consumables are ideal for cutting intricate, fine-featured shapes out of thin sheet metal and provide squarer edges, tighter tolerances and a narrower kerf on thin metals than regular Powermax consumables.
FineCut works with both hand and machine mounted Powermax torches. If hand cutting, their use is straightforward. Install the consumables and start cutting. The FineCut process is also easy when cutting with a machine torch, however the capabilities of the CNC machine can clearly impact outcomes.
CNC cutting tables are available for any budget and can come in a wide range of capabilities. It is important that the table you choose have a torch that stays straight on the cut path and maintains the cut speeds necessary to minimize dross and produce smooth, square edges. Simply stated, some machines will do an excellent job on materials thinner than 10 gauge, while others will not. Do your homework.
