Carbon steel cutting machine is the most commercially metal cutting tools in the world, but that doesn’t imply it can be manufactured everyone.

Every year, about 1.5 billion metric tons of crude steel are manufactured and sold for use in automobiles, bridges, tools, machinery, buildings, trains, electrical cabinets, and other applications.

With all of these important everyday applications, it’s critical that carbon steel be cut correctly—quickly and precisely.

We have the unique carbon steel cutting technology needed to manufacture high precision carbon steel plates at OMNICNC.

Fiber laser cutting machine, plasma & flame cutting machine, and water jet cutting machine are the most prevalent machines.

Precise Carbon Steel Cutting 2 - 5 Ways to Achieve Precise Carbon Steel Cutting- Carbon Steel Cutting Machine

Carbon Steel Laser Cutting

Sheet Metal & Pipe Fiber Laser Cutting is a cutting method that is both precise and fast.

The device combines beam-modulation technology with rotary chuck power and speed to automatically match material thickness with sheet or pipe cutting. Users benefit from the capabilities of this sheet metal & pipe cutting machine to process round, square, rectangle, c channel, and angle iron.

Beam-modulation technology enables a continuous variable beam across all material thicknesses without the need for lens changes. And it still can maintain high productivity.

The diameter of the laser beam and the width of the cut grow with material thickness, allowing for simple removal of produced pieces.

Carbon Steel Sheet Laser Cutting

Carbon steel cutting is one use for high-power lasers. A 4,000-watt laser can process carbon steel up to 1.0 inch thick, while a 6,000-watt laser can process carbon steel up to 1-5/8 inch thick.

In this material thickness range, oxygen is always utilized to process the plate. The major role of oxygen in thick carbon steel manufacturing is to help in the burning of the plate. It also aids in the ejection of the molten material. Assist gas pressure and volume are typically quite modest. For example, 6 to 8 PSI of oxygen is commonly needed to treat a 1-5/8-inch-thick plate.

The assist gas (oxygen) passes through the nozzle aperture and down into the kerf, much like in inert-gas cutting. While a steady flow of aid gas is necessary to expel the molten material from the kerf, too high an assist gas pressure might induce uncontrollable burning. Once the combustion process begins, relatively little help gas is necessary to keep it going.

Fiber Laser Carbon Steel Pipe Cutting

These laser pipe cutting machines can cut square pipes, circular pipes, I-beams, and custom-shaped pipes made of stainless steel, carbon steel, iron, seamless, galvanized, and other metal components.

They are capable of a wide range of processing activities such as cutting, chamfering, opening, and groove cutting.

Pipe Fiber Laser Cutting Machine is extensively used in kitchen appliances, electrical panel boxes, electrical manufacturing, elevator manufacturing, and car parts,hardware, Structural Steel Plants,mechanical systems, and other applications.

Carbon Steel Cutting With Flame & Plasma Cutting Machine

The flame and plasma cutting method has the lowest running cost, but it requires more fluid seamless pipes and the cutting quality is not as exact as the fiber laser cutting equipment.

Nevertheless, as flame and plasma cutting technology has advanced, some manufacturers have chosen multi-head flame and plasma cutting machine automated cutting as the primary technique for cutting fluid carbon steel seamless pipes.

Carbon Steel Cutting With Water Jet Cutting Machine

The combination of chuck rotation and the linear axis on the CNC table allows for the cutting of varied geometries on the pipe wall using the CNC control.

On the side of a typical CNC waterjet cutting gantry table, a chuck is utilized to revolve a pipe. This kind of pipe cutting allows for the cutting of greater diameter pipes. Pipe is frequently mounted on rollers.

Waterjet can cut and prepare pipes for various sorts of intersecting branches using CNC programming.

A stand-alone chuck may also spin a spherical pipe with watrerjet cutting.

Shearing Method

This method has a high rate of production and a cheap cost of cutting. Shearing is the most common method of cutting medium-carbon seamless pipes and low-carbon alloy structural steel pipes.

A large-tonnage shearing machine is used for double shearing to increase shearing efficiency; to decrease the flattening degree of the end of the steel pipe during cutting, the cutting edge normally uses a shaped blade.

During shearing, seamless steel pipes that are prone to shear fractures are warmed to 300°C.

Sawing Technique

This cutting method has the best cutting quality and is extensively used in alloy steel pipes, high-pressure steel pipes, and fluid seamless pipes, particularly for cutting large-diameter fluid seamless steel pipes and high-alloy steel pipes.

Bow saws, band saws, and circular saws are all types of sawing tools.

Cold circular saws with high-speed steel sector blades are used for cold sawing alloy steel pipes, whereas cold circular saws with carbide blades are utilized for high-alloy steel saws.


Above are 5 ways to cut carbon steel sheet and pipes. OMNI offer fiber laser cutting machine, plasma cutting machine, water jet cutting machine for precise and fast cutting delivery.
