Prototype of small abrasive cutting head (pre-aligned)

The prototype of a small cutting head consists of a centred by the cone of the collimation tube. A small water jet of 0.15mm diameter passes the mixing chamber of the cutting head body and enters the focussing tube of 0.3mm diameter and 30mm length. It is pre-aligned also by a cone to the jet of the water nozzle. The jet disintegrated in the mixing chamber enters the cutting head and creates a low pressure, which then is used for the pneumatic transport of the abrasive material into the cutting head. The cutting head is adaptable to practically all conventional AWIJ cutting units. It will be promoted by Böhler, Procer and Comadur. Stein-Moser will sell the necessary handling systems. Tal, Stein-Moser, WST Winkel and EBG will benefit from the cutting head directly.
