Water Jet and Abrasive Water Jet Machining : Principle, Working, Equipment’s, Application, Advantages and Disadvantages

Principle Of Water Jet Machine-

This process works on the basic principle of water erosion. In this process, a high-speed well-concentrated water jet is used to cut the metal.It uses the kinetic energy of water particle to erode metal at the contact surface.The jet speed is almost 600 m/s. It does not generate any environmental hazards. For cutting hard materials, abrasive particles are used in the water jet.These abrasive particles erode metal from the contact surface.

Equipment – Parts Of Abrasive Water Jet Machine-

Hydraulic Pump:

In the water jet machining process a hydraulic pump is used to pump the water from the storage tank for the machining process. It is connected to an electric motor of about 100 Horsepower.
