What is the waterjet cutting machine used for and how does it work?July 21, 2022 at 8:58 am #2080max greenModerator
The following are some examples of water jet cutting machine applications:
1. With the use of abrasives, water jet cutting equipment may perform precise cuts in granite, marble, porcelain, Dekton, Caesarstone, neolith, ceramics, stone, and tiles.
2. Because glass is brittle, it is easily broken during typical cutting operations. As a result, water jet cutting is one of the most commonly used glass cutting procedures. The 5-axis waterjet cutters can insert even the most complicated cut designs on a glass workpiece. It is used to make cut-outs, frameless showers, holes in splashbacks, and glass architectural applications. Techniwaterjet offers a variety of appropriate handling devices for cutting glass with a water jet cutter, allowing for smoother loading and unloading of the product.
3. Water jet cutting is capable of cutting any metal, including aluminum, hardened tool steel, titanium, copper, brass, and other rare metals. Because water jet cutting generates no temperature rise, the structural and chemical integrity of the workpiece is retained.
4. Ceramics are difficult to manufacture because of their durability, necessitating the employment of expensive saw blades. This is why water jet cutting is a less expensive method of cutting ceramics.
5. Poisonous vapors are created when polymers are exposed to high-temperature equipment. As a result, because no temperature rise occurs, water jet cutting is the safest option for cutting polymers.
6. At high temperatures, rubber, like plastic, emits harmful fumes. Because of its safety benefits, waterjet cutting is employed by industries all over the world to treat rubber.
7. Textiles are highly flammable and can catch fire as temperatures rise. Waterjet cutting is a common cold cutting technique used in textile processing plants.
8. Fiberglass and carbon fiber composites are now widely used in a number of applications. For normal cutting operations, these composites are soft materials that can strain or fracture if applied with insufficient force. Waterjet cutting is one of the better cutting procedures for composites since the force is limited to the point of impact.
9. Food processing companies require a clean cutting approach that does not include any heat changes. Waterjet cutting is ideal since it is a cold cutting method that leaves less physical impact on the cutting surface.
