(1) A wide range of applications.
Almost suitable for processing all materials.
In addition to steel, aluminum, copper and other metal materials, it can also process particularly hard, brittle, soft non-metallic materials.
Such as: plastic, leather, paper, cloth, chemical fiber, wood, plywood, asbestos, cement products, glass, granite, marble, ceramics and composite materials.
(2) High processing quality.
The slit is narrow, which can improve the material utilization rate;
The cut is flat, free of burrs and flying thorns.
It can also be used to remove burrs on the rims, grooves, threads, cross holes, and blind holes in valve bodies, fuel assemblies, and medical devices.
(3) No sparks when cutting.
There is no thermal effect on the workpiece and it does not cause changes in the surface structure.
This cold working is well suited for the processing of explosive and flammable items.
(4) Processing and cleaning do not produce soot or toxic gases, reducing air pollution.
Improve operator safety.
Reduced tool preparation, sharpening, and setting of tool offset, and significantly reduced installation adjustment time.
The application of water jet processing in the mechanical field is mainly cutting, deburring, punching, grooving, cleaning the welding root and removing welding defects.
Water jet cutting processes a wide variety of materials, mainly non-metallic or metallic materials that are generally difficult to machine or process.
In particular, some new synthetic materials, such as ceramics, cemented carbide, die steel, titanium alloy, tungsten molybdenum cobalt alloy, composite materials (such as metal-based fiber reinforced metal, fiber reinforced rubber, etc.), stainless steel, high silicon cast iron and processing of malleable cast iron, etc.
When used for deburring, the removal of burrs on cross-holes, internal threads, narrow grooves, blind holes, etc. on various small precision parts is very difficult or impossible to accomplish by other general methods, and the use of water jet processing technology is very convenient and it has a unique effect.
In terms of perforation, the water jet can be used to punch holes in various materials instead of drilling the drill bit, which is not only of good quality, but also has a high processing speed.
The size of the pores that can be processed by insufficient water jets, especially the minimum pore size, is limited by the nozzle aperture and the abrasive grain size.
In addition, the water jet processing does not generate heat and does not damage the material of the workpiece, and the defects of the back side of the welded joint of the heat-sensitive metal are removed, and the crack in the weld is removed.
