PARAMETRIC STUDY OF ABRASIVE WATERJET PROCESSES BY PIERCING EXPERIMENT.
Date of Original Version
An experimental investigation was conducted to determine the material processing characteristics of a high pressure abrasive waterjet system by means of piercing method. The materials: aluminum (6061 T6), Steel (316 stainless and 4140), super alloys (IN100, Inconel 600), and ceramic (AD85) were used as workpieces to quantify the material removal mode applicable to waterjet cutting and machining operations. The process parameters were measured and analyzed in terms of water pressure, abrasive flow rate, and the material thickness, type, and mechanical properties.
