How can the groove be cut on the edge of a plate?

To determine

The way of cutting groove on the edge of a plate.


Groove weld is defined as the method of creating a groove on the surface of parent material. This groove is created as a base where welding operations can be performed. These grooves are cut by using oxyfuel torch. Cutting methods like plasma arc cutting and air carbon arc cutting are also used to create groove on the edges of the plate.

The aim of creating a groove is that it helps in settling of filler metal into groove in order to offer good weld joint. Plasma arc cutting involves a high speed of hot jet of plasma for cutting. Materials like stainless steel, copper and brass are cut using plasma arc cutting tool.

In oxyfuel torch cutting process, the materials are cut using some gaseous fuel with oxygen to create weld or for cutting grooves...
