Anyone who has used a power washer to clean a deck knows that water can be a powerful tool for cleaning. But to watch a pencil of water and abrasives cut a 4´´ thick plate of stainless steel is eye opening. Such is the growing awareness of waterjet cutting technology, for it's time to take waterjet cutting seriously.

The State of the Art of Precision Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

Abrasive waterjet cutting has become a main stream machining technology in today’s manufacturing world. This paper will serve as an overall review of the state-of-the-art of this technology applied to precision machining. Topics will cover the cutting process, hardware (pumps and XY tables), and software, as well as the latest tilting head technology for taper removal.

Versatility of Waterjet Technology: From Macro to Macro Machining for Most Materials

Waterjet technology has matured rapidly and become one of the mainstream precision machine tools since commercialized in the late 1970’s. Waterjets have several inherent features that are superior to most conventional machine tools. Abrasive-waterjets are nowadays highly automated with PC-based CAD/CAM software that controls and operates the hardware (pump, nozzle, abrasive feeding,...

Micro Abrasive-Waterjet Technology

Waterjet technology has come a long way since its commercialization in the late 1970’s. It has evolved from merely a rough cutting tool to a precision machine tool, competing on equal footing with established tools such as lasers, mechanical milling and routing tools,EDM, ultrasonics, photochemical etching, and various CNC tools.

The versatile waterjet technology inherently has...
