  • Laser cutting- A high-powered laser beam is focused on the material, vaporizing and cutting through it.
  • Oxy-fuel cutting- Uses a mixture of oxygen and fuel gas to heat and melt the corten steel.
  • Saw cutting- Here a rotating blade cuts through the material.
  • Waterjet cutting- A high-pressure stream of water mixed with an abrasive material to cut through the High Strength Weathering Steel beams.
