Five ways for water jet cutting machine to improve workshop productivity

Regardless of the size of the business, continuous productivity improvement is important to improve gross profit and maintain competitiveness. The workshop is a highly competitive environment. Customers expect very fast turnaround time and flexibility to adapt to changing needs. To succeed, the workplace must invest in technology to give it a competitive advantage in the market. Water jet cutting machine improves workshop production efficiency and provides customers with high-quality service. Reduce rework and waste, and improve workshop workflow and efficiency.

Water jet cutting machine uses high-pressure water to cut various types of materials. Abrasive (garnet) is usually added to water to increase cutting strength.

The following are five ways for water jet cutting machine to improve workshop productivity:

1. No rework required

Many technologies, such as milling, laser cutting and plasma cutting, need to be reworked. Some of these produce high temperatures, creating a heat-affected zone (HAZ) on the workpiece. Burn marks must be removed from the surface of the material, which adds an additional step to the manufacturing process. Water jet cutting is cold cutting, no thermal effect, no need to rework, shorten the production time. Some processes deform the surface of the material and must be cleaned by deburring. Using a water jet cut creates a smooth surface, bypassing another rework step and further reducing production time.

2. Reduce waste through nesting software design

Nesting is the process of placing the Outlines of parts in an optimal configuration on the surface of the raw material. The precision of water jet cutting allows for very close proximity between parts, thus minimizing waste. By reducing waste, water jet cutting can save workshop unnecessary costs.

3. Make your own components

Give your production plan and quality to the supplier. You become dependent on their schedule and quality performance, which can have a negative impact on your customers. Water jet cutting machine provides you with the technical ability to manufacture your own parts. This means that you must control the quality of your work and delivery schedule in order to deliver the quality service that customers expect.

4. Cut several layers at a time by stacking them

Water jet cutters can penetrate very thick sheets of raw material. This opens up the possibility of stacking and cutting raw material sheets in a single pass through the machine. Stacking raw materials for mass-produced parts can make a noticeable difference in production times in your workshop.

5. Water jet cutting machine has reliable performance and convenient maintenance

Workshops need high availability of machines to ensure maximum productivity and the ability to meet customer plans.
