Waterjet cutting aluminum technology
Aluminum is a commonly used material in the mechanical engineering industry because of its low cost of ingot, aluminum material is characterized by light weight, no surface treatment and no rust. Easy to process and install with lower cost than steel and stainless steel.
Aluminum sheet products are used a lot in specialized machine frames, automatic machines do not require high load capacity. In addition to conventional milling and turning methods, thick aluminum is also processed by the waterjet cutting method on CNC machines (Water Jet). The outstanding feature of this method is the ability to cut up to 100mm thick, serving rapid embryo creation and cutting details that other machining methods do not meet.
Metal cutting technology in general and aluminum cutting in particular is the method of processing sheet metal by using a water jet with very high pressure and high speed, a mixture of water + abrasive particles (Al2O3, SiO2 and garnet). to cut through aluminum sheet.
This is a non-heat machining method, with a common cut width of 0.76 mm, which can achieve accuracy of ± 0.064mm, straightness of 0.05mm on sheet thicknesses from 1.5 ~ 30 mm. The greater the thickness of the sheet, the greater the taper.
Advantages of waterjet cutting aluminum technology:
Water jet cutting for aluminum sheet is used to make patterns, cut machine parts from thin, medium, thick to very thick sheets (gears, code plates, flanges with holes … cutting structural plates that require evaluation or high quality aluminum profiles with 2D profiles, making holes, drilling holes in large, thick aluminum sheets.
CNC water jet cutting aluminum plate brings higher productivity than traditional machining methods by reducing the time to set and calibrate the machine. With a 1500x3000mm plate mounted once on the machine table, with just one programming time, the parts have been finished cutting in a very fast time, significantly reducing the time for manufacturing.
Water jet cutting is an accurate machining method. Especially thick sheet, precision is still high, the quality of cutting is much better than plasma, gas-oxygen cutting. The cut does not appear bavia and does not have to go through the shaving process like plasma cutting. Water jet cutting does not generate heat, so it does not cause material changes, warping the product after cutting helps to keep the desired shape.
