Methods of controlling distortion while making cuts.


Distortion is the process of changing shape of the work metal with the non-uniform temperature. Non-uniform temperature gives uneven thermal stress to the work metal and hence distortion. Distortion is necessary to control for proper cut. Two major controlling processes are given below:

  1. Cutting of work metal from both the edge top and bottom with same cutting variables. Cutting at both the edge gives uniformity of temperature over work metal. This gives distortion free cut.
