Oxy-Fuel Torches Market: Overview and Dynamics
Oxy-fuel torch is an equipment that is generally used for cutting ferrous metals or the metals that contains iron. Oxy-fuel torches are not preferably used in the cutting of cast iron, aluminum or stainless steel. The oxy-fuel torches offer process flexibility as it performs cut, braze, weld, solder, gouge and heat. The availability of oxy-fuel torches in different length benefit the operator as it keeps in away from the heat, slag and flames formed while cutting and thus it ensures operational safety.
In oxy-fuel torches, the oxygen is used as a primary source of energy and oxygen combined with other gases enables the cutting and wielding process. A separate supply tube is incorporated to supply additional oxygen necessary for the cutting process. The oxygen and fuel gases are combined to form the preheating flame, and a separate supply tube is incorporated to supply additional oxygen required for the cutting process in oxy-fuel torches. A separate valve lever on the oxy-fuel torch controls the airflow. The flame-cutting method is one of the most common techniques for removing material in the fabrication industry.
A welding torch is used to weld metals in oxy-fuel welding, and a torch is used to heat metal to its kindling temperature in oxy-fuel cutting. Metals are welded by using a welding torch in the oxy-fuel welding and cutting process. The torch is used to heat the metal to its kindling temperature. Cut quality, preheating times, and metal thicknesses can all be affected by the type of fuel gas used when using oxy-fuel torches. Natural gas, propylene, acetylene and propene are the commonly used gases along with oxygen. The combination of gases to be used depends on the application and the requirement of the user.
The growth of oxy-fuel torches is primarily influenced by the use of the oxy-fuel welding method in various industries. The oxy-fuel cutting/wielding has an advantage over other methods as these can be used for cutting and welding numerous materials. The oxy-fuel cutting ad wielding machines are less expensive which make it a lucrative option for small wielding shops to use it.
Oxy-fuel welding and cutting equipment are the simplest to use and require the least amount of setup time, resulting in increased popularity among end-users which opens up new opportunities for the manufactures in the near future. Furthermore, oxy-fuel welding and cutting equipment does not require electricity to operate.
Manufactures offers oxy-fuel torch with fully integrated oxygen cooling which ensures operational safety, high quality in cutting and improved cutting speed. The improvement in design and technology has reduced the complexity associated with oxy-fuel torches.
There are attachments that are available in the market which can be attached to the oxy-fuel torch to make the cut through different shapes and sizes thus ensuring precise cutting and welding. Radius circle guide, radius guide and bevel guide are some of the attachments that can be used to make the best use of the oxy-fuel torches in cutting and welding equipment.
Oxy-Fuel Torches: COVID- 19 Impact Insights
The pandemic had a significant and unprecedented impact on the market for oxy-fuel torches. The COVID-19 pandemic is a one-of-a-kind shock to the global economy, making its long-term consequences impossible to anticipate. The covid-19 had a ripple effect on the economy as the infections were at alarming rates. The enactment of the lockdown and restrictions in the movement to contain the virus has interrupted the entire supply chain and halted production. COVID -19 had a significant effect on leading customers and suppliers in heavily impacted areas such as China, North America, and Japan.
The pandemic had a disproportional impact on the business and socio-economic classes which has led to transition in consumer behavior and buying patterns, which need to be taken into consideration by business to get right back on track in the market or it may question the survival of the business.
In the third quarter, the government eased the lockdown and travel restrictions, allowing oxy-fuel torches manufacturing firms to resume production with fewer employees due to social distancing requirements. Furthermore, the lockdown has begun to lift in a few regions, providing a ray of hope for a firm recovery in the oxy-fuel torches market.
