Production Efficiency with Integrated Nozzles

In the world of abrasive waterjet cutting, the nozzle is where all the proverbial magic happens. It's here that the high-pressure water makes its way to a jewel orifice that focuses the water into a thin beam. The water beam then enters the mixing tube where the cutting abrasive is introduced to the stream. The water and abrasive then exit the nozzle, ready to cut. Historically, most...

Comparing Motion Control Systems in Abrasive Waterjets

 

Positioning accuracy is a critical aspect of producing tight tolerance parts when cutting with an abrasive waterjet. The more precisely you can position the jet, the more precisely you can machine the part. A motion control system positions the cutting nozzle along the X- and Y-axes of a waterjet. This system is comprised of motor and drive components, a controller and...
