Flame cutting process can be used for cutting many different materials with the basic requirement that the oxide formed must have a lower melting point than the base material to be cut. Ordinarily, the process can cut from sheet metal thicknesses to 100 inch material. Prior to 1958, when Plasma was introduced, all thicknesses were flame cut. Today metal thinner than 3/8-1/2 are typically only cut by plasma or laser, as thin materials are very challenging to flame cut. As we mainly use flame cutting for heavy steel structure parts.
