Top Advantages Of Waterjet Cutting
A certain computer program normally runs the waterjet cutting. It is done by the material being placed on the table and the cutting is done across the material. The next thing that happen is the abrasive getting into the water that has very high pressure. Then it is put into a very tiny hole. The cutting is done by the stream of water that comes with very high speed. The material wasted with this cutting is minimized by the small size of the stream. There exists other cutting machines with many heads that help save time. There exist so many benefits of the waterjet cutting. These advantages are explained below.
The waterjet cutting can be done on any kind of materials. Stainless, carbon, and tool steels, copper, gold, granite and other many materials are the examples of the materials that can be cut with the use of the waterjet cutting. It does not choose the size or he thickness of the materials that has to be cut with this technique. Also the uneven and the stacked surfaced materials can be cut successfully with the use of the water cutting machine. Complex shapes can be cut by the technique too with no problem. Hence this is a add advantage.
Also the waterjet cutting ensures that there is no heat on the material cut. The room temperature does not change with the use of the waterjet cuttings as it is the case with the use of the thermal machines. The reason behind this is that the heat generated is absorbed by the water and returned back to the tank. This is an advantage since hardening of the material is avoided. Hence his techniques suitable for the materials that can easily melt such as the plastic.
Waterjet cutting is a very accurate technique that can be used in cutting materials. The accuracy of the waterjet cutting can be as small as 0.125mm. Even when the material is thick, the level of accuracy is still high. This is because they are more stable and can control the stream very well.
The time that waterjet cutting can be done is much less than other machines. Hence it is economical on time. This implies that it is not that expensive as compared to another machine such as the EDM. Also it is much easier to set up and program the machine.
Waterjet cutting is environmental friendly. The gases that lead to environmental pollution are not produced during the process. The process does not need oils for it to be successful. It is even possible to use clean water to cut some material that can be dirtied.
When making perforations with the use of waterjet cuttings, the his are not made first like the other materials do. This is the reason why it is good to use the method.
