The article focuses on the effectiveness of low-pressure nitrogen assist gas in cutting stainless steel. It mentions that this cutting technology is projected to replace the oxygen assist gas and cites its ability to remove any molten steel from the cut. In addition, it is cited that this technology is far more better than oxygen assist gas in producing better stainless steel with quality. Moreover, its ability to mitigate industrial cost is also highlighted.
