Awaterjet cutter是一种能够在高速和压力下使用水的射流切割成金属或其他材料的工具,或水和磨料物质的混合物。该过程基本上与自然中发现的水腐蚀相同,但加速并浓缩的级别。它通常在制造或制造机械和其他装置的制造或制造期间使用。它发现了从挖掘到航空航天的各种行业的应用程序,其中它用于切割,塑造,雕刻和铰孔等操作。

在Big Blue Saw,我们使用Waterjet切割turn your ideas into real partsfrom your designs.

Waterjet cutting offers several advantages over other machining technologies:

Lower cost.Waterjet部件通常从片材或板材切割,并且不需要特殊的夹具,固定装置或工具变化。这转化为更快的生产和更低的成本。

Wide variety of materials supported.Waterjet cutting can be used on most metals, many plastics, wood and stone. It can be used to cut many materials that would be difficult to machine using other methods, such as heat-treated alloy steel.

No heat-affected zone.Machining methods like laser cutting and EDM heat the material and the parts will need to be heat treated again after machining. Waterjet cut parts retain their heat treatment when cut. This means that you can start with pre-heat treated material and keep your costs down.

The cutter is commonly connected to a high-pressure water pump (a local water main does not supply sufficient pressure) where the water is then ejected out of the nozzle, cutting through the material by bombarding it with the stream of high-speed water. Additives in the form of suspended grit or other abrasives, such as garnet and aluminum oxide, assist in this process. Because the nature of the cutting stream can be easily modified, waterjets can be used to cut materials as diverse as polyethylene plastic and titanium. There are few materials that can't be effectively cut with a waterjet cutter; one of these is tempered glass which shatters when cut, regardless of the cutting technology used. Our customers use waterjet cutting to makerobots,电子零件和外壳,scientific equipment, 以及更多。

The most important benefit of the waterjet cutter is its ability to cut material without interfering with the material's inherent structure as there is no "heat affected zone" or HAZ. This allows metals to be cut without harming or changing their intrinsic properties.

Waterjet历史

In the 1950s, forestry engineer Dr. Norman Franz experimented with an early form of water jet cutter to cut lumber. However, the technology didn't advance notably until the 1970s. Today the water jet is unparallelled in many aspects of cutting and has changed the way many products are manufactured. Many types of water jets exist today, including plain water jets, abrasive water jets, percussive water jets, cavitation jets and hybrid jets.
