Water-jet cutting is based on a very simple functional principle. A fine jet of water hits the surface of a workpiece at high speed. It causes material removal and separates the material. To generate the required high-pressure water jet, a high-pressure pump brings the water to a pressure of up to several thousand bar and directs it to the cutting head.
Depending on the material to be cut, the water can also be mixed with an abrasive. The water with a jet diameter of 0.1 to 0.5 millimetres emerges from a fine nozzle opening at the cutting head.
The blasting capacity depends on the pressure of the water and the diameter of the nozzle opening. The water jet separates the material particles near the surface and causes a stress-free cutting process without heat ingression into the material.
Depending on the nature of the water jet and the hardness and thickness of the material, different cutting depths and speeds can be achieved.
portable water jet cutting machine is the flexible cutting solution for customers, which is mainly applied in wield surroundings for inflammable and explosive cutting, for instance waste tank hole cutting, gas pipeline cutting, line of intersection and profile cutting, and the sheet plate cutting
