What is Lumsden grinding?

What is Lumsden grinding?

Lumsden is a popular make of grinder. Lumsden grinding is the removal of material using a grinding machine. By doing it this way, higher rates of material are removed. Compared to other ways of grinding, larger areas can be machined without leaving lines. Lumsden grinding comes in different types: Reciprocal grinders to grind on a long rectangular table Rotary grinders to grind on a circular magnetic table Here at Patrick Steel Ltd we have 5 rotary grinders, Two 60”, Two 48” and One 36” to ensure a high quality appearance of the finished product and to the specific thickness that our customers desire. If you would like any more information on our grinding machines or for any other enquiries then contact us today!

Plasma Cutting Or Laser Cutting... Which Is Better?

Plasma Cutting Or Laser Cutting... Which Is Better?

Having continuously invested in modern plasma cutting equipment over the years, the team at Patrick Steel Ltd can fabricate a wide range of products at highly competitive prices. Operating from our fully equipped workshop in Coventry, all our metalwork is completed to the strictest of standards, producing parts and components that meet a variety of customer requirements across multiple industries. The Differences Between Laser Cutting & Plasma Cutting… Plasma Cutting Used in conjunction with (C.A.D) Computer Aided Design software, Plasma cutting machines produce highly accurate components in a consistent and time-efficient manner. Electric current and compressed gas are passed through a confined opening (under pressure) to cut through the metal plate, achieving a neat and precise finish every time. Benefits Of Plasma Cutting: Fast and cost effective A.D Integration Can be used to cut through all metals Highly accurate Achieves a consistent finish High quality part replica...

Do Plasma Cutters Really Produce Clean Cuts?

Do Plasma Cutters Really Produce Clean Cuts?

We are often asked if Plasma cutting does what it says on the tin and produces precise cutting. Precision plasma cutting has come a long way and the latest technologies provides a clean, sharp cut. Plasma cutting cuts through conductive material with ease including stainless steel, aluminium, brass even copper. In fact, Plasma cutting can cut through any metal, regardless of the thickness. Plasma cutting can do this cut through any metal with ease. By creating a complete electric circuit combined with compressed gas, which is blown threw a nozzle at high-speed means the cuts are precise and quick. In addition to this, an electrical arc from the cutter torch travels down the plasma and ionizes the gas. This creates an electronically conductive channel of plasma which in turn creates enough heat to melt through any metal. This combination of electricity and gas ensures a precise cut every time.

What Is A CNC Plasma Cutter?

What Is A CNC Plasma Cutter?

Plasma cutting is a process that cuts through materials using an accelerated jet of hot plasma. A CNC Plasma cutter is a machine that has a plasma torch and is moved and directed by a computer. CNC refers to “Computer Numerical Control”, which means a computer control the motion of the plasma machine. CNC Plasma Cutting involves mechanised cutting via a computer system to move the torch in various directions which has been programmed into the computer. In comparison to water jet cutters, mills and CNC systems, CNC plasma cutters are different as they use a torch with extreme heat. This type of machine is compromised of straight-edged mechanical cutting. Using a mix of electricity and gas the machine cuts through the sheet precise and exact. CNC Plasma Cutting can be used on a range of material from stainless steel right through to copper and aluminium. In fact, if the material conducts electricity then it can be cut by a CNC Plasma cutter.

Plasma cutting the Hobbits Door

Plasma cutting the Hobbits Door

We wanted to share with you one of the most enjoyable projects we have worked on. Patrick Steel were approached by a local designer and was asked if we would help create a replica Hobbit door from the Lord of the Rings movies. As expected, we happily agreed to this fantastic project. The metal work on the door was plasma cut from 8mm mild steel, with the hinges fabricated by our neighbours, Metal X Fabrications. It took a lot longer to draught the intricate design on our Lantek software than to physically plasma cut but the finished product was worth all the efforts. In fact, the cutting time was only 5 minutes as the plasma cutter works at a speed of 3175mm per minute when cutting 8mm.  Super-fast!!!! Here is a picture of Bilbo's finished house. We were privileged to be asked to be involved and it was a fantastic project to work on.

The Process of CNC Profile Cutting

The Process of CNC Profile Cutting

High Quality Cutting Solutions Plasma cutting guarantees quality, consistency and because of this means it is a cost-effective solution to the cutting process. CNC Plasma cutting was initially developed to cut materials that were unsuitable for flame cutting for instance steel or aluminium, however the process is now used more widely and is suitable for a variety of carbon steel and thin low alloyed steels. What does the process include? Find out more about the process… CNC profile cutting is a cost-effective method of cutting two dimensional profiles from steel sheet and plate using a CNC controlled cutting machine. A CNC profile cutter is a metal plate cutting machine that uses plasma cutting technology to cut through metal. The plasma cutting process uses electrically conductive gas to transfer energy from an electrical power source through a plasma cutter torch to the material being cut. The plasma arc consists of a power supply, arc starting circuit and a torch. With a c...
