Oxy-Fuel Cutting

The oxy-fuel cutting process has been in use in the US for more than 100 years. For the first 70 years of the 20th century, oxy-fuel cutting was industry’s “Go-To” process for steel. By the 1970’s, the plasma cutting process began replacing oxy-fuel for steel under 1”. By 2010, 400A high definition plasma systems began offering production cutting capacity of 2”. Laser cutting entered the scene in the 1990s and took share from both oxy-fuel and plasma.

For steel over 2”, oxy-fuel cutting remains a vital part of manufacturing to this day and likely will remain so for years to come. Learn all about Oxy-Fuel Cutting below including how it works and the history of it.
