Q

3. How is horsepower related to waterjet cutting capacity?

Horsepower is one of the factors affecting the water volume when you are using our waterjet nozzle. For instance, you can choose a 50-HP intensifier pump for a 0.022-in. orifice. The water pressure can be 60,000 PSI. The output of the waterjet cutter is about 1 gallon per minute. While you use a 100-HP pump, the output will be 2 GPM.

Interestingly, the horsepower level at the nozzle and at the pump will be different.  The intensifier and direct-drive systems also have different pumping efficiency levels. However, in some cases, nozzle diameter, horsepower at your nozzle, and the flow rate of abrasives have no differences. The pump will maintain consistency in the cutting speed.

You may need additional horsepower based on the material to be cut. Thus, the higher horsepower level will add speed to the machining process. You may cut aluminum of 3-inch thickness and other thicker materials.

You can manage thin materials using low horsepower. The frequency variation will be much stable in this case. Overall, it can be said that the waterjet cutting process will be highly efficient by raising the horsepower of your pump.

Q

4. What is the relationship between nozzle size and abrasives?

Abrasives can cut your materials while they have reached them successfully. The mesh of your abrasives should be of the proper size for your orifice. Perfect sizing will let you avoid clogging. For any size of the nozzle, 80-mesh garnet is the acceptable one. The 50-mesh garnet is a coarser one. You can use it for orifices having a larger diameter (0.022 or 0.020 in). The 50-mesh garnet working with a narrower nozzle will increase the clogging risks. On the contrary, the smaller water jet nozzles are useful for your high-precision applications.

However, to decide on the perfect mesh size, you have to know about something more than nozzle size.

However, to decide on the perfect mesh size, you have to know about something more than nozzle size. For instance, you must focus on sandpaper for better finishes.

Q

5. How powerful is your 3-axis waterjet cutting process?

3-axis waterjets rely on nozzles capable of carrying a high level of pressure. Moreover, the use of garnet also helps in cutting materials of any thickness. The hardness of the garnet in Moh’s scale is 6.5 to 7.5. Thus, the hardness of your material should be less than this level.

Abrasive waterjets cut materials of different thicknesses, like glass, metal, hardened steel, titanium, ceramics, stone, rubber, plastic, and rubber. For instance, when you apply waterjets to pass through a titanium slab of 4 inches, you need a water stream of 50000 PSI. The garnet grit travels at a speed of 700 mph. Waterjets reach up to 90000 PSI, while household faucet has a water pressure of 60 PSI. Similarly, the pressure cleaner works at a water pressure of 4000 PSI. Thus, the waterjet is the most powerful. The difference in water pressure can make a variation for applications. Waterjets’ pressure can range from 50,000 to 90,000 PSI.

Q

6. With what nozzle does your 3-axis waterjet cutter work?

Waterjet nozzles are of different types. Thus, cutting heads are also available in a range of models. You can use the best waterjet nozzle styles for industries like glass, aerospace, farming, and automotive manufacturing industry. The most popular types of waterjet nozzles are single and double orifice continuous jet, mechanically oscillated orifice jet, and acoustically pulsed orifice jet. You can choose these nozzles for different flow rates and water pressure levels for the cutting project.

Q

7. What benefits do you get from the 3-axis waterjet cutter?

Q

14. Does your 3-axis waterjet cutter turn out taper?

The cutting speed is the major factor causing a difference in the taper produced by the waterjet cutting process. The higher speed can result in more taper. The water jet will close down on the thickness to increase the taper from 0.1mm to 0.4mm for every side of your cut. However, we have designed 3-axis cutters in a way that you may minimize the taper.

Q

15. What are the most common competitors of waterjet cutters?
