Air Carbon Arc Gouging. What is it, how does it work and

Jul 25, 2018· Air carbon arc gouging is a process of removing metal by means of heat generated from a carbon arc. The process uses a carbon/graphite electrode, compressed air and a standard power source. The intense electric arc used between the tip of a carbon electrode and a metal work piece cuts and melts the work piece.

Understanding plasma gouging vs carbon arc & air arc gouging

May 03, 2016· Plasma gouging works on any conductive metal, including mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and copper. With a bit of practice, it is possible to achieve smooth, clean, consistent gouges. Compared to other processes, such as carbon arc gouging, plasma gouging can reduce the amount of noise and debris in the work environment.

Air carbon arc cutting Wikipedia

Air carbon arc cutting, also referred to as metal arc gouging, and previously as air arc cutting, is an arc cutting process where metal is cut and melted by the heat of a carbon arc. Molten metal is then removed by a blast of air. It employs a consumable carbon or graphite electrode to melt the material, which is then blown away by an air jet. This process is useful for cutting a variety of materials, but it is most often used for cutting and gouging
