Water Jet Cutting Maximum Thickness

Maybe the first thing about waterjet you want to know is “How thick can they cut?” This question is every one will ask before deciding to buy a water jet. But, the question may lead to misleading answers. Or, on the other way, it means the question is not clearly. For example, the Grand Canyon was essentially cut with an […]

High Pressure Equipment Knowledge

High-pressure abrasive and waterjet cutting systems have unique properties that must be understood to maximize performance and ensure safety. This article discusses the principles of water compressibility and pressurization, metal fatigue, high-pressure plumbing, seals, valves, and making and installing ultrahigh pressure fittings. Abrasive and waterjet cutting equipment operates at pressures up to 60,000 pounds per […]

Waterjet Cutting Machine Working Principle

Original Title: Waterjet Cutting Process Basics The most versatile process for shape cutting Highest precision cutting on virtually any material Can be combined with plasma or oxy-fuel on the same part Most versatile cutting process Water Jet cutting uses an ultra-high pressure stream of water to carry an abrasive grit. The abrasive does the cutting through […]

How do waterjets work?

Take ordinary tap water and pressurize it to 60,000/55,000 psi (4,000 bar) and force it through a very small hole. Mix the water with garnet abrasive and you have a very thin stream of water traveling very fast that will rapidly erode most materials. Some waterjets are “pure waterjets” and don’t add the garnet abrasive. […]

Why Choose Waterjet

The advantages of waterjet are the reason promoting the development of waterjet. Although there are a lot of advantages, they almost can come down to “versatility”. By using a waterjet, we can efficiently and cost-effectively create a wide range of parts by using widely different materials. The reason of waterjet can cut virtually any material […]

What goes into a waterjet?

Although every waterjet model is different, there are certain standard features that will be present in all waterjets in one form or another. Controller The controller is the “brains” of the waterjet: it turns the high-pressure water pump on and off, moves the nozzle head and controls the abrasive flow. Most modern waterjets use a […]

Is this pure water?

It is clean water. Most of our customers use softened tap water. Intensifier pumps should be supplied with filter cartridges that clean the water down to 0.5 micron. De-ionized or reverse osmosis systems are generally not recommended. These types of systems can make the water too clean, which makes the water aggressive and harmful to […]

How do we dispose of water/garnet?

Neither water nor garnet are toxic or hazardous in any way. Water, when properly filtered for turbidity, can be flush down to the drainage systems. The garnet waste can usually be dumped in a standard landfill. waterjet http://waterjetapw.com http://waterjetapw.com

How loud is it?

Noise from the waterjet is dependent upon the distance the supersonic jet is exposed to the open air. If you are cutting underwater, the noise level will be under 75 dB. If you are cutting above water, and especially if there is a large distance between the mixing tube and the work piece, the noise […]

How long does the mixing tube last?

The highest quality ceramic carbide mixing tubes last 30% longer than other mixing tubes. A tube such as this can deliver 150 hours of cutting time for 0.020″ in diameter. Many users keep the mixing tubes longer and use them to cut parts which require looser tolerances. article from: http://waterjetapw.com waterjet http://waterjetapw.com

How thick can it cut?

Operators cut up to 8-inch steel and titanium in production. There have been cases where 12″ and even 15″ thick materials have been cut. However, majority of cutting from operators ranges from 1/4″ to 2″. article from: http://waterjetapw.com waterjet http://waterjetapw.com
