How Does A Waterjet Cutter Work
Jun 22, 2018
  1. High Pressure Pump: The pump generates a flow of pressurized water for the cutting process.

  2. Cutting Head: This computer-controlled multi-axis cutting head permits angled cuts and can be used to automatically minimize taper for precise vertical cuts.

  3. Abrasive Waterjet Nozzle: Inside the nozzle the pressurized water passes through a small-diameter orifice and forms a coherent jet of water. The jet then passes through a venturi section where a metered amount of granular abrasive is drawn into the water stream. The mixture of water and abrasive particles passes through a special ceramic mixing tube and the resulting abrasive/water slurry exits the nozzle as a coherent cutting stream of abrasive particles travelling at very high speed.

  4. Catcher Tank: The water-filled catcher tank dissipates the energy of the abrasive jet after it has cut through the material being machined.

  5. Abrasive Hopper: The abrasive hopper and associated abrasive flow control system provide a metered flow of granular abrasive to the nozzle.

  6. X-Y Traverse System: A precision X-Y motion system is used to accurately move the nozzle to create the desired cutting path.

  7. PC-based Controller: Advanced motion controllers for abrasive waterjet systems are PC-based and permit production of accurate parts with minimal operator experience
