Precision Practices: Tool Offset

OMAX waterjet machines are designed for high-precision machining. A combination of meticulous mechanics, rigid construction, and velocity control from the software ensures the highest degree of precision in the parts. Even with all that precision built in, you, as the operator, are able to hone that precision further by implementing a few fundamental practices. Last month Precision Practices...

Precision Practices: Lead-ins and Lead-outs

OMAX waterjet machines are designed for high-precision machining. A combination of meticulous mechanics, rigid construction, and velocity control from the software ensures the highest degree of precision in the machined parts. Even with all that precision built in, you, as the operator, are able to hone that precision further by implementing a few fundamental practices. In OMAX’s Intelli-MAX...

Advanced Error Correction Methodology Applied to Abrasive Waterjet Cutting

First introduced in the last decade, the concept of "compute first, move later" for motion control optimized the abrasive waterjet cutting process. Using a cutting model that varied cutting speed around corners and along arcs provided a greater degree of accuracy. Recent innovations in corner-cutting strategy allow the cutting of external corners without sacrificing speed or surface...

Impact of Residual Stresses on Accuracy of AWJ Cutting

As the accuracy of abrasive waterjet (AWJ) machines is improving, a wider range of process variables are receiving attention regarding their impact on the accuracy of AWJ cut parts. Residual stress is one of these process variables. In this experimental study, AWJ tests cutting steel samples with and without residual stresses were conducted. The results indicated a strong link between residual...
