Sheet metal sawing & cutting
Sheet metal sawing and cutting is one of the basic processes of industrial metalworking. Sheet metal cutting can be done by means of:
- Guillotine shears (or, in some occasions, press brakes)
- Plasma, gas, and water jet cutting systems
- Wire erosion tools

The choice of metal cutting technology is based on the required workpiece form and edge quality after cut. The type of processed metal must be also taken into account.
Sheet metal sawing and cutting is used in almost all metalworking industries in all sectors of the economy: the manufacture of machinery and equipment, the transportation sector, metalworking industries, defense industry, the aerospace sector, construction, the manufacture of agricultural machines, food processing industry, forestry, enterprises of fuel and energy industry, and so forth.
