How fast can a waterjet cut and how does it hold accuracy?

Speed and accuracy depend on material texture, material thickness, and the cut quality desired. In case of rubber and gasket cutting, there are waterjet machines whose motion capabilities would allow traversing at 0.1 to 3000 linear inches per minute. We could offers the approximate cutting speeds for a wide variety of materials. We will also be […]

How does a waterjet work?

There are two main steps involved in the waterjet cutting process. First the ultra-high pressure pump generally pressurizes normal tap water at pressure levels above 40,000 psi (2760 bar); to produce the energy required for cutting. Second water is then focused through a small precious stone orifice to form an intense cutting stream. The stream […]

How much water does waterjet use?

It costs approximate one gallon water per minute during process depending on the cutting head orifice size. In addition, 3 to 5 gallons per minute are used to cool the waterjet pump, and the water could be recycled. article from: http://waterjetapw.com waterjet http://waterjetapw.com

What is the difference between water-only water jet and abrasive water jet?

Commonly, “Water jet”can be used as both “water-only” water jet and “abrasive” water jet cutting. Water-only water jets cut with ultra-high pressure water alone. Abrasive water jets cut with an abrasive material (usually garnet) which added to the water stream. Water-only water jets are used to cut through softer materials such as rubber and foam. Abrasive […]
