Waterjet cutting is very efficient in making complex designs and producing intricate forms ready for ultimate production. Waterjet cutting capabilities add a new, very high speed Mitsubishi Waterjet which can cut any material to nearly 8 inches thick, with a sharp, smooth finish and excellent taper control. Waterjet is one of the most popular machine tools utilized today in cutting metal. This type of machine tool can make even the toughest of metals, such as aluminum, stainless steel and titanium, into precise, intricate shapes.
A waterjet cutting system possessed by steel fabrication companies in UAE consists of two primary components: a cutting unit and a nozzle. The nozzle is typically made of high-quality stainless steel or graphite to prevent rust and corrosion of the cutting device itself. The cutting unit is an aluminum or copper material designed specifically to reduce bubbles from forming during the process. Shaping the metal is also dependent on the shape of the nozzle as well as the pressure and flow rate being applied to the metal. The concept of waterjet cutting systems is to allow the user to create any shape by feeding a stream of water at very high pressure through the nozzle. Once the metal is fed into the nozzle it is manipulated via the varying speeds of the water jet nozzle to cut the metal with precision angles and finishes.
The first step to a proper waterjet cutting service Dubai is to setup the system. Most systems will require the use of an air compressor to provide the proper pressure and flow rate. Air compression is used because it provides a constant source of high pressure for the nozzle. Once the system is set up it is time to feed the water into the system. Water flowing at a high pressure into a high pressure stream is necessary in order to get the best possible result and reduce bubbles from forming.
After the water has been fed into the system, it is time to start the precision cuts. Using a computer, the artist can experiment with various designs of the custom cut. By allowing the computer to create a physical image of the cut, the artist is able to feed in different amounts of the water, stroke the paper, adjust the size of the strokes, speed of the water jet stream and much more. As long as the blueprint is followed closely, the artist will be able to control the exact image and precise details. The image created will then be fed back into the waterjet cutting service shop where it is reproduced on the required sheet.
