Abrasive Water Jet Cutting
Abrasive Water jet works with a waterjet that is accelerated across the first nozzle, the so-called water nozzle. In the subsequent mixing chamber, the high speed of the water jet generates a vacuum that makes the mix between water and abrasive. The resulting mixture is accelerated in a second nozzle called the focusing tube.
The results are a mixture of water and abrasive pressurized at 60000 psi capable of cutting virtually any material.
Today, Abrasive Waterjet Cutting is used wherever chip less forming, machining, and thermal cutting techniques (Laser, Plasma cutting, Flame cutting.) would produce unsatisfactory results for mechanical, physical or commercial reasons or where these cannot be used.
With No Heat Affected Zone or hardening, with the lowest mechanical load and the best possible material usage (Nesting), even the smallest quantities and medium-sized series can be produced flexibly and efficiently.
The Industries that use this technique include systems and mechanical engineering (Machine shops), aerospace and automotive industry, the metal, plastic, stone, and glass industries, as well as the paper industry.
