Tag Archives: waterjet training

Waterjet technology as a new technology in nowadays is attracting extensive attention. But there is less systemic training and related knowledge showed on the website for people to learn by themselves. At APW, we support related waterjet knowledge for people to learn online and keep updating related knowledge we may meet.

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

At what pressure do you cut?

Waterjets cuts at 90,000psi. It is also the maximum intensifier pump pressure. Although higher pressures can result in higher maintenance cost on intensifier pumps especially on the seals, the result is higher cutting speed and efficiency. article from: http://waterjetapw.com waterjet http://waterjetapw.com

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 the material fixture work?

There are many methods of fixturing the material down. The simplest is to place a plate of material on the machine, and anchor it with weight. More advanced fixturing can be employed if needed for specialty applications or secondary machining. Article from: http://waterjetapw.com waterjet http://waterjetapw.com

How much is the max thickness if I want to cut steel?

There are two limits about max thickness. One is practical limit, the other one is physical limit. The practical limit means for most materials, the condition is about 100mm thick. If the metal thicker than that thickness, the tolerances will be dropped and the machining time will be increased. For some projects, like cutting titanium, […]

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 […]
