Water jet Cutting Machine is an extremely efficient industrial tool which uses a jet of water flowing under a high pressure for the cutting tasks. This Water Jet is capable of piercing through many types of material for trimming and cutting purposes. Commonly Water Jet that is injected under high pressure is the pure water but rarely a mixture of an abrasive substance and also water is used for this purpose.
Water Jet intensifier pump creates a stream of abrasive atoms that are suspended into a solution of water that is injected under high pressure. A stream of water which usually comes out through a sharp nozzle is directed towards the material that needs to be cut. A stream of water which runs at intense speed and also pressure penetrates through the surface of the material and it is able to cuts it into required pieces. Abrasives or additives that are used in this process are commonly garnets or the aluminum oxide.
Factors which Affect The Cutting Speed In A Water jet Cutting Machine are:
- The capacity of addictive or abrasive particles in the mixture which flows under the high pressure to cut the material is proportional to the cutting speed.
- Time that is taken by the Water jet Cutting Machine to cut depends basically on the thickness of the material which is being cut. The thicker the material which is being cut, the more the time taken by the Water jet Cutting Machine. Also, the time which is taken by Water jet Cutting Machine also depends on the precision and also the finishing in cutting which has to be achieved. The more accurate the cutting is, the more time it will take.
- Pressure at which the solution of water and also abrasive flows enormously determines the speed at which the Water jet Cutting Machine will be able to cut the material.
Benefits Of Using A Water jet Cutting Machine:
- Very less quantity of material is lost in cutting done by the Water jet Cutting Machine.
- Structure of the material which is cut by Water jet Cutting Machine does not need any type of further reworking. Finishing achieved during the cutting is greater since there no heat which is produced in this process and also the material is not deformed.
- Water jet Cutting Machine is more effective than the most of the other Cutting Machines. The machine can cut the material in all directions.
- Water jet Cutting Machine permits easy and also flexible cutting of even the robust materials such as metals.
