CNC waterjet cutter:
A CNC waterjet cutter is an industrial tool capable of slicing many materials by using a jet of water at high pressure. While to cut soft materials, it can use water alone like (rubber and wood) or water often mixed with abrasive materials like (aluminum oxide and garnet) to cut harder materials.
CNC Waterjet cutting method is used during manufacturing or fabrication of machinery parts. It is used to cut almost any material and is used in a multiple number of industries, including aerospace and mining for cutting, reaming, shaping and carving.
CNC Waterjet is an advanced cutting technology that provides a smooth cutting surface of materials with less need for further processing and without releasing heat affected zones. The versatility of this machine is much better than other machines processed in the market with a minimum waste material.So CNC water jet cutting is the best method for cutting, reaming and shaping the materials.
Components of CNC waterjet:
CNC Waterjet cutting system components are:
>Ultra high pressure system
>The control system
How does pure water jet cutter work?
How does an abrasive water jet cutter work?
The basic principle of an abrasive water jet is similar to pure cnc waterjet cutting. This method is implemented to cut the hard materials like metal or glass. When a stream has passed through jewel orifice, it enters a carbide nozzle. Carbide nuzzle is a mixing chamber in which vacuum is created by a high velocity stream of water.
CNC controller is a program that is manufactured by using proprietary software and converting this into G code format which is called CNC language. In both processes, the CNC controller controls the head which provides great accuracy.
