Water knife history

The composition of the waterjet cutting machine system 2 900*550

Dr. Norman Franz has long been recognized as the father of waterjets. He is the first person to study ultra high pressure (UHP) waterjet cutting tools.

The definition of ultra high pressure is above 30,000 psi. Dr. Franz is a forestry engineer who wants to find a new way to cut large trunks into wood.

In 1950, for the first time, Franz put heavy weight on the water column, forcing the water through a small nozzle. He achieved a short high-pressure jet (which repeatedly exceeded the pressures used today) and was able to cut wood and other materials. His later research touched a more continuous stream of water, but he found it difficult to achieve continuous high pressure. At the same time, the life of a part is also measured in minutes, not weeks or months today. Dr. Franz has never produced a mass-produced wood cutter. Today, wood cutting is one of the most important uses of ultra-high pressure technology. But Dr. Franz proved that high-speed concentrated water flow has tremendous cutting energy – the use of this type of energy far exceeds Dr. Franz’s dream.

In 1979, Dr. Mohamed Hashish worked at the Flow Research Laboratory and began researching ways to increase the energy of waterjet cutting to cut metals and other hard materials. Dr. Hashish is widely regarded as the father of sanding waterjets. He invented the method of adding sand to ordinary waterjets. He uses garnet (a type of material often used on sandpaper) as a sanding material. With this type of method, waterjets (containing sand) can cut nearly any material.

In 1980, the sanding waterjet was used for the first time to cut metal, glass and concrete.

In 1983, the world’s first commercial sanding waterjet cutting system was introduced and used to cut automotive glass. The first users of the technology were the aerospace industry, who found the waterjet to be the ideal tool for cutting stainless steel, titanium and high-strength lightweight composites and carbon fiber composites used in military aircraft (now used in civil aircraft).

Since then, abrasive waterjets have been used in many other industries, such as processing plants, stone, ceramic tiles, glass, jet engines, construction, nuclear industry, shipyards, and more.

Since its establishment, Huayu Waterjet has been continuously researching water cutting technology. The production technology of Huasheng Technology has been at the international advanced level. It not only introduces advanced laser interferometers and other measuring instruments, but also has a dedicated quality control team. To perform rigorous testing of each process. With the joint efforts of all Huaying people, Huasheng Technology Co., Ltd. has extended its sales market to more than 20 countries and regions including North America, South America, Europe, Australia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia and the Middle East. With rich experience and considerate service, Huasheng Technology has become a Chinese supplier serving many international buyers. Because of concentration, so professional. Huasheng Company has successively developed new water cutting machine products, such as glass special water cutting machine and marble special water cutting machine. Huaying people are becoming the “head” of the water cutting machine industry in China and the world.

“Refining water into a knife, taking honesty as a rudder” is always a portrayal of the entrepreneurial spirit of Huaying people. Welcome friends from all walks of life at home and abroad to contact Foshan Huasheng Technology and visit our factory. Foshan Huasheng Technology Co., Ltd. sincerely hopes to create and share success with all customers.
