Most our material to be welded is plasma or flame cut on a Messer.
There is a grinding op after the burn table and a dedicated person to clean up all the edges. Every part that comes off the burn table goes thru this op. He doesn't need to do much, mostly just break the edges and it's ready to weld. No complaints but that's how it's been done here for decades.
The welders have de-scalers they use to prep the weld area after it's tacked together.
Is it a technical issue or common resistance to change?
