Plasma and Shear Cutting

Bear Ridge Utilizes Messer’s Metal Master® Evolution High Definition CNC Plasma Machine

The fabrication and/or machining process of steel components frequently starts with parts getting cut to size, beveled, and marked on the plasma table.

The plasma’s capabilities extend to cutting any form of mild and abrasion resistant steel up to 4 inches thick by oxy-fuel cutting, or cutting high production aluminum and stainless components by using H20 and shield gas.

Bear Ridge also operates an assortment of shears designed for production jobs that are capable of cutting and punching angle, flat stock and channel.
