Experimental results from the pulsed cutting of angular profiles in mild steel plate are presented. These results enable a rational approach to the determination of suitable pulsing parameters for cutting profiles in mild steel, together with a combination of empirically derived formulae and established theoretical approaches which functionally relate the key pulsing parameters of cutting speed, cutting power, pulse length and pulse separation. Comparison of experimental data with other published results (where available) has been made.
