Cutting technologies in automobile manufacturing and transportation must fulfill the highest requirements. When cutting metal sheets and other materials for the automotive industry the focus is on safety, precision, appearance, and economic efficiency. Thick plates are cut for chassis frames, thin sheets and aluminum for lightweight construction body parts, and high-strength, distortion-free steel for passenger compartments. Plasma, laser and oxy-fuel cutting solutions offer vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers powerful technologies for manual and mechanized cutting processes.
Highly-efficient high-end cutting
Vehicle construction uses cutting systems in various applications: when constructing passenger compartments, superstructures and substructures of trucks and buses as well as axles made of high-strength steel, or when manufacturing parts for car bodies, motorbike frames, wheel rims, seats and exhaust systems made of lightweight materials like aluminum and noncorrosive steel. Depending on the material, its thickness and the batch size, THERMACUT® offers a broad variety of powerful plasma, laser and oxy-fuel cutting solutions. Mechanized processes are important for the automotive industry. As they ensure fast, cost-efficient production with constant high product quality, CNC cutting systems and solutions that are suitable for robots are used often.
