According to the customer's specifications, Livallco supplies both cut and shaped parts.

We use the Everising cutting machine. A quality brand for cutting solid round bars, flat bars and pipes in diameters from Ø 16 mm up to Ø 460 mm. Everising can cut all types of materials, such as aluminium, brass, copper, stainless steel, tool steel, etc.

In our factory warehouses, cutting is carried out up to Ø1100 mm.

Thanks to a close co-operation with experienced subcontractors, Livallco can process both short and long series, in both thin and thick sheet metal. Livallco performs cutting such as water, gas, laser and plasma cutting. Also shearing, cutting, sawing and bending.

Gas cutting

Is suitable for sheet metal with a thickness > 25 mm but can also be performed on thinner sheet metal, down to about 6 mm with some difficulty. It is one of the oldest methods of cutting and can be carried out on very thick sheet metal. It is also the cheapest type of cutting method. A major advantage of gas cutting is that several torches can easily be used simultaneously, which increases productivity. It is a comparatively slow cutting method, with a maximum of about 0.5 metres per minute at a material thickness of 25 mm. Tolerances are usually +/-1-3 mm depending on the thickness of the material. Acetylene or propane is most commonly used as a fuel gas. An oxygen jet performs the cutting process in the material. Depending on the substances contained in the material, the possibility of gas cutting is affected.

Plasma cutting

Used on materials with thicknesses between about 3-50 mm. In plasma cutting, an arc is created between the cutting electrode and the material. The arc (plasma) heats up the electrically conductive material, e.g. steel, stainless steel, aluminium, brass, etc. Compressed air, or in some cases, another gas, cuts (blows away) the heated material and thus creates a cut. The temperature in the arc can reach 30 000°C. Plasma cutting is a faster method than gas cutting and tolerances are usually around +/- 0.3-0.5 mm.

Laser cutting

Used for thicknesses below about 6 mm. However, today's laser cutting machines can cut materials up to 25 mm thick. Laser cutting is a cutting method in which a laser beam heats the material to such a high temperature that the material melts or gasifies. The temperature can be several thousand degrees in the cut. The advantages of laser cutting are a high processing speed, sometimes as high as tens of metres per minute, also the tolerances are top compared to many other methods with tolerances of about +/- 0.05-0.1 mm.

Water cutting

Abrasive waterjet cutting can be used to process virtually all materials, such as stainless steel and titanium in both thin and thick materials. Waterjet cutting is also not affected by heat, which means that the material retains its mechanical properties even when cut. The edges of the cut material are of high quality and usually require no finishing. Waterjet cutting is an environmentally friendly method that produces a fine cut surface with a tolerance of +/- 0.1 mm, reducing the need for finishing. With only a 0.2-1.5 mm wide cutting beam, there is minimal waste of material.

Sawn and cut

Livallco also provides sawn or cut material according to the customer's wishes.

The advantage of this method is that the material is exposed to very little heat.

Blast ring

Thanks to close co-operation with a number of blasting plants, blasting is carried out according to the customer's wishes.

Heat treatment

Our services include annealing, normalisation to enable further processing and hardening to prepare the material for end use.
