International Water Jet’s new WPC series pipe cutting machine is a versatile water jet system. As an example This system uses high pressure water jet for cutting composite material pipes that are not suitable by other types of cutting methods. This WPC is system can be used to cut pipes of various materials.
The machine system consists of a 50 k high pressure water pump, a cutting table (which will vary in size depending on pipe to be processed) with water jet cutting head and abrasive feeding system. The pump requires 3 phase electricity power supply of 220V — 480V, 50 or 60 Hz, (specified by the customer). The pressurized water is fed to the cutting head through a high pressure whip tubing. The water jet pump is 50 hp and when cutting with abrasive, the max thickness of mild steel is 60mm.
The cutting table can rotate the pipe when cutting. The rotation speed is adjustable to suit various cutting speed needs due to different wall thickness and type of the materials. Position of the cutting head is also adjustable to fit different diameters of the pipe. The cutting head can slide along the length of the table to choose desired cutting position. There is an abrasive hopper mounted on the same rail of the cutting head for feeding abrasive to the cutting head. Customer should specify the weight of the pipe when order the machine.
The wall thickness of pipe that can be cut depends on the type of material. Cutting speed also depends on the type of the material. Some materials may require adding abrasive to enable the cutting.
Special tracks can be ordered to cut different shapes of holes into the pipe wall instead of cutting off the pipe.
