DEFINITION OF WATERJET CUTTING
The waterjet cutting system is commonly connected to a high-pressure water pump where the water is then ejected from the nozzle, cutting through the material by spraying it with the jet of high-speed water. Additives in the form of suspended grit or other abrasives, such as garnet and aluminium oxide, can assist in this process.
Pure Waterjet uses only pure water as its main element, mainly uses in softer material like food, medicine, thin rubber, gasket, sponge. Abrasiver waterjet cutting system improved its cutting performance to mix abrasive with water. Almost all materials in industries could be cutted by abrasive waterjet cutting system. Abrasive waterjet is for precise cutting in thick and hard material like steel, aluminum, stainless steel, bronze, composite materials.
TOPS waterjet system consists with UHP pump(intensifier/direct drive), Nozzle/Orifice, Plumbing parts(Tube,hose,valve…), Abrasive tank, Controller(Cutting parameter/path/shape control), waterjet cutting table.
