The pressure behind abrasive waterjet cutting

Since the inception of waterjet technology nearly 50 years ago, there has been an ongoing argument concerning what combination of pressure and power results in optimal cutting performance. Do bigger numbers translate into better or faster cutting? What combination of pressure, horsepower, and nozzle assembly is best for a given application? What does all this really mean?

Cutting Stacked Material

When cutting a lot of very thin parts, stacking the material may be beneficial, especially if there is a lot of rapid traversing or workpieces that require time-consuming fixturing. Some of the benefits of stacking are that it cuts down on setup time for very thin materials and can reduce the amount of rapid traversing per part. Stacking may also reduce taper and the amount of burr remaining...

Not All Abrasive Is the Same

There are many different kinds of abrasives including garnet, staurolite, olivine, crushed glass and copper slag. There are also different brands, grades and sizes of abrasives. Garnet is the most popular abrasive for abrasive waterjet applications because it balances cutting speed, cost, low silica content and mixing tube wear.

Third Dimension

For a fabrication shop, versatility is key for taking on as many jobs as possible. The more often a shop can say “yes” to potential jobs, the more successful they will be. The easiest way to achieve greater versatility is by expanding capabilities. Shops that focus primarily on flat 2D work, for example, can add an articulated cutting head and/or rotary axis to...

New chapter

Metal asteroids? Most are made from rock or ice but in recent months, NASA approved the next fabrication and testing phase of its spacecraft and subassemblies for its mission to explore Asteroid Psyche, an asteroid scientists believe to be metal. It originates from a planet possibly as large as Mars. It is voyages such as these that innovate technology that then flows down into everyday...
