...-carbon arc cutting cutting equipment AIR-CARBON ARC CUTTING (CAC-A) removes metal physically, rather than chemically, as in the oxyfuel cutting process. Gouging, or cutting, occurs when the intense heat of the arc between the carbon electrode and the workpiece melts part of the workpiece. Air...
