CUTTING HEAD TECHNOLOGY - Pure Water & Abrasive
Pure Water Cutting Heads
Water is fed through specially designed pressure-proof flexible pipelines to the cutting head. The cutting head consists of a pneumatically operated valve and a nozzle tube with a precious stone orifice (normally made in sapphire or diamond) at its outlet. The cutting jet exits the orifice at up to three times the speed of sound.
Abrasive Cutting Heads
A special abrasive head is mounted on the water nozzle. In this head, the abrasive is mixed with the pressurized water. The movement of the cutting head is normally CNC controlled through the waterjet cutting unit. Early detection leakage points protect the orifice body, nozzle pipe and nozzle nut against damage, as they indicate if connections must be retightened or seals replaced. Thanks to the unique design of the cutting head, seals can be replaced in less than five minutes and without tools. The precision performance combined with easy maintenance of Waterjet abrasive cutting heads offer unrivaled value. Thanks to the simple design, orifices can be changed in seconds without the need for any tools!
