Best Practices for Managing Waterjet Abrasive

Efficient waterjet cutting isn’t just about the cutting head and the pump. Most people in the fabricating industry have a good idea of how waterjets work. While the equipment, particularly the cutting heads and high-pressure pumps, typically dominate most conversations about waterjets, it’s the consumable—the garnet—that does the Read more

How do I adjust my waterjet to use BARTON abrasives?

How do I adjust my waterjet to use BARTON abrasives?

Any changes of waterjet grades or abrasives from different suppliers will require recalibration of the abrasive flow rate. Because particle size distributions (PSD) vary from supplier-to-supplier abrasive will flow at different rates. Once the abrasive flow rate has been calculated, the measured feed rate Read more

How do I minimize the kerf loss?

How do I minimize the kerf loss?

The primary factors on kerf loss are nozzle diameter and orifice selection. Using a larger nozzle than needed will increase kerf loss. Orifice alignment will also affect kerf loss. Improper orifice alignment will cause the stream to bounce inside the nozzle and will decrease nozzle life and Read more

Can glass be cut on a waterjet?

Can glass be cut on a waterjet?

Yes, glass can be cut on a waterjet. Depending on the thickness, glass may flex during cutting and therefore should be fully supported on a flat level surface. HYDROBLOC waterjet bricks are a good support and will reduce the chance of frosting on the bottom of the glass. Read more
