Other Methods of Tube Cutting

There are other ways of cutting metal tubing and sheet metal fabrication Austin, TX. For smaller projects, or for those requiring less small, precision cuts, these methods are used, though many specialized sheet metal fabricators opt for the current laser cutting technology.

Acetylene torches are used to cut metal tubing of various circumferences. A vise is used to hold the tube in place while the acetylene and oxygen-fueled torch burns through the metal. There is no burring associated with this method, but the metal can become warped due to the amount of heat applied. Using a cold saw to cut metal tubing is easy, but can be time consuming if there are many tubes that need to be cut. This is because only one tube can be cut at any one time. Band saws can be used to cut through multiple tubes at once. This method, although efficient, can be dangerous.
