Q

Why should i use to cut water than the laser cutting machine?

A

Laser is an high productive cutting system but water jet has many advantages over laser:

  • No thickness limits

  • No mechanics and heat change

  • No material limits

  • Maximum manufacturing and application flexibility (starting from rubber to titanium , from sponge to ceramic, from polystyrene to stone metal 60 Roc, from glass to stones, from gasket to the composites)

  • No environmental problem (no smog and pollution) because is a clean technology that use just ecological abrasive and water

  • Low manufacturing process cost

  • High performances

  • Minimum hole diamater from 0.1 (0,004” water only) and 1 mm (0,040”) hydro-abrasive

  • Accuracy from 0.05 – 0.15 mm. (0,002” – 0,006”)


Q

Where can I get support for my waterjet cutting machine?

A

If you encounter problems with waterjet cutters, you can always contact HEAD Waterjet. We provide your system with the following services: 24 hours support through our hotline to support customized full service and original spare parts expansion and maintenance support in the maintenance contract Do you need waterjet cutting machine operation support? We will also conduct appropriate training on site. Please contact us.


Q

How much does a water jet cutting machine cost?

A

    The costs of a water jet cutting machine vary greatly with the requirements of the customer and are therefore always determined individually. Important information on the following points:

    Desired size of the working zone

    Desired number of cutting heads

    Desired cutting method (2D / 3D)

    Material to be processed

A waterjet cutting machine can also be equipped a range of function tools and features at an added cost to support your speciifc production requirements. In addition to the acquisition costs, the cost of water, electricity, abrasives and ware parts should be taken into account in the planning.


Q

How does a water jet cutting machine work?

A

In terms of cutting materials and applications, water jet cutting has almost no restrictions. This is a very efficient and precise method of cold cutting with water jet technology. High-pressure water with or without abrasives cuts a variety of materials without generating harmful heat. Smooth cutting edges and minimal cuts are the highlights of this cutting method. In cutting systems, high-pressure pumps and nozzles are used to generate high-pressure water jets

A water jet cutting machine uses highly focused water jets for cutting work. This non-thermal cutting process is as follows:

  • water is filtered and fed into the cutting heads with several thousand bar pressure.

  • The cutting heads move according to a fixed pattern over the material

  • The focused water jet cuts

In the meantime, the material also uses abrasives, depending on the material. Thus, high-precision cuts can be carried out without thermal distortion even on materials of various types and thicknesses.
