The difference between water jet pure water cutting and abrasive cutting

Waterjet cutting machines can be divided into pure water cutting and abrasive cutting in nature. The water jet has kinetic energy. The higher the pressure of the high-speed water jet, the greater the cutting kinetic energy, which can realize cutting. The advantage of pure water jet cutting is cutting. The kerf is small. The cutting ability can be greatly improved after adding abrasive.

1. Pure water cutting
Pure water cutting is commonly used to cut foam, rubber, cloth, and other materials. If you use a jewel nozzle with a diameter of 0.15-0.2, you can use a 37KW, 50-horsepower high-pressure pump to drive four cutter heads to cut at the same time, which not only cuts the gap, but also speeds up the cutting efficiency; if you use a jewel nozzle with a diameter of 0.25, With a 50-horsepower high-pressure pump, two cutter heads can be simultaneously driven to cut.

2. Add abrasive cutting
Generally, hard materials must be mixed with abrasive sand before cutting, such as cutting marble, steel, stainless steel and other materials. At the same time, it must be equipped with a cutting nozzle to cut.
