The Use of Air Arc Gouging

Air arc gouging is a process of removing metal by using heat generated from a carbon arc. This process utilizes a carbon/graphite electrode, compressed air and a standard power source. The extreme heat arc created between the electrode and a metal workpiece gouges and melts the workpiece. The molten metal is also blown away by the compressed air. This process is often used for cutting stainless steel, carbon steel and alloys of copper, brass, aluminum and magnesium.
