New at Donze
In June, Donze teamed up with Levy Engineering and Indiana Flame Services to trial a new oxy cutting nozzle at US Steel Gary Works. The new nozzle was able to produce a cut with a kerf width as narrow as 3.5mm on cold, medium carbon slabs. Kerf is the distance remaining between two cut pieces of steel slab. It indicates the amount of material removed or melted away by the oxy cutting process. This is an important measurement because a 1mm kerf reduction on average, means a yield loss savings to a steel producer of approximately $200,000 per 500,000 tons cut.
