Water jets are widely used in metallurgy, building materials, military, defense and other departments, mainly used for cutting various hardness materials. Especially in large processing plants. It is a typical cutting machine. However, some processing plants use cantilever waterjet cutters and some use gantry type water jet cutters. The following describes the selection of these two water jet cutters.
Cantilever water jet cutting machine is intermittent cutting, so the productivity is relatively low, impact vibration, high energy consumption, product accuracy is not as good as the gantry type. Its advantages are the small height of the machine, simple structure, reliable work, easy manufacture and easy maintenance.
The gantry type water jet cutter is continuously cut, so the productivity is high, the work is relatively stable, the energy consumption is low, and the product precision is more uniform. The disadvantages are the high cost of the machine, the complexity of the organization, and the high cost of manufacture and repair.
Regardless of the type of water jet cutting machine, it can be determined based on actual requirements which water jet cutter needs to be cut.
