Principles of hydroabrasive cutting

During hydro-abrasive cutting, water is mixed with an abrasive in a special chamber and is passes through a narrow nozzle of the cutting head under the pressure up to 4000 Bar. The hydro-abrasive compound is discharged from the cutting head with a speed exceeding three times the speed of sound.

Advantages of hydroabrasive cutting

- There are no heat effected zones, hardened zones;
- light mechanical load on material is facilitates the machining of complicated parts, especially with thin walls;
- there is no emission of dust, smoke or toxic gas;
- there is no need of multiple tool set and tool grinding;
- minimum material loss in the course of cutting;
- there is no need of de-burring;
- there is no need of re-machining due to the high quality of the machined surface;
- relatively high speed of cutting of thick materials, capability to cut the thickness up to 200 mm, depending upon the material type;
- total absence of damaged edges of closely adjacent holes (thickness of strap between two holes can be 0.5 mm and even less);
- Possibility to operate in a  wide range of thicknesses and material types;
- Very simple and fast reprogramming.
