The wall thickness of pipe that can be cut depends on the type of material.
Cutting speed also depends on the type of the material. Some materials may
require adding abrasive to enable the cutting.
The machine system consists of a high pressure water pump, a cutting table with
water jet cutting head and abrasive feeding system.
The waterjet pump is 50 hp and when cutting with abrasive, the max thickness of
mild steel is 60mm. The pump requires 3 phase electricity power supply of
220V -- 480V, 50 or 60 Hz, (specified by the customer). The pressurized water
is fed to the cutting head through a high pressure whip tubing.
The cutting table can rotate the pipe when cutting. The rotation speed is adjustable
to suit various cutting speed needs due to different wall thickness and type of the
materials. Position of the cutting head is also adjustable to fit different diameters
of the pipe. The cutting head can slide along the length of the table to choose desired
cutting position. There is an abrasive hopper mounted on the same rail of the cutting
head for feeding abrasive to the cutting head. Customer should specify the weight of
the pipe when order the machine.
Linear and rotational motions are both CNC controlled with server motors.
