Water jet cutting machines can be operated by an electric motor or a diesel engine. These ultra high pressure devices can be used for an amazingly large range of applications. One of the most wonderful methods to cut hard metals such as steel and concrete is cold cutting using water jets. When we use an ultra-high pressure water jet for precision cutting of steel, we also use a sharp edged abrasive compound. This multiplies its cutting prowess without generating any significant heat, which is highly desirable in industrial plants or chambers, where generating a high degree of heat is considered to be harmful or dangerous for the process.
Though it does not generate heat, but cold cutting is very dangerous, so the technicians operating the process implement highest degree of safety protocols. It is also expected for the operators to maintain a safe distance from the powerful water jets. High pressure water jet is also used for cleaning tanks and vessels.
Water jet metal cutting machines are also used to remove scaling from inside of pipelines. Intense water streams are produced in this method using small nozzle heads that can conveniently enter narrow pipes. We have to make sure that water stream used is highly controlled and flexible as there are twists, turns and bends in the pipes. This flexibility and control can be achieved through a mechanism, where speed of water jet is controlled remotely to effectively handle all possible situations.
It is also important during the process that the water is utilized to a maximum extent employing the methods that determine a low water usage rate. The best way to implement it is to use filtration and recycling, which will reduce the wastage to a great extent.
Normally CNC (Computer Numerated Control) machines are very costly and so we should assess our needs first before deciding to buy a new one. Sometimes you do not need it frequently or on consistent basis. So it is better to buy used stone equipment. This equipment is not only cost-efficient but also function properly and usually you can avail them with a warranty.
