Waterjets Tech Tip 3 – Tips for Water Jet Cutting Glass

Jet Edge 5 x51 Jet Edge Waterjets Tech Tip 3   Tips for Water Jet Cutting Glass

  • Reduce the risk of chipping by using a low-pressure pierce of approximately 10,000 psi.
  • Reduce low-pressure piercing time from two minutes to 10-15 seconds (depending on thickness) by cutting a tiny circle rather than leaving the jet fixed on one spot.
  • 120 grit garnet will produce the best edge quality. If speed is your priority and chipping not a concern, use 80 grit garnet
  • Cut at 75,000 PSI to increase cut speed by 50-75% and improve edge quality.
  • Support glass on a sheet of 3/16” corrugated PVC rather than directly on the metal slats. This reduces the risk of chipping and fogging.
  • If your projects require you to frequently raise and lower pressure, install a patented Jet Edge   dual pressure valve to save time and prolong  waterjet pump  component life.
  • Tempered glass cannot be cut with waterjet.

New Contact Height Sensor for High Rail Gantry Waterjet Cutting System

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

je logo New Contact Height Sensor for High Rail Gantry Waterjet Cutting SystemJet Edge, Inc., is pleased to introduce a new Contact Height Sensor for its High Rail Gantry waterjet cutting system.

With Jet Edge’s Contact Height Sensor, waterjet operators can overcome significant fluctuations in material flatness by maintaining a constant automatic standoff within approximately 0.040″ (1 mm) of a set standoff height. As a result, they will achieve optimum cut quality, tolerance, taper and speed without having to monitor the standoff.

Jet Edge’s Contact Height Sensor senses directly around the nozzle so the information is as close as possible to the nozzle location. The sensor arm can either ride on the plate or have infinite programming for the time it is in contact and raised. This gives operators complete control over how they want the height sensing to work for their application. Jet Edge’s AquaVision Di controller software also provides feature avoidance for the Contact Height Sensor. This protects the height sensor and cutting head by automatically providing a tool path that will not allow the cutting head to pass over a previously-cut part which can tip up after being cut. The software can be configured to independently control up to four cutting heads with height sensing.

Jet Edge’s Contact Height Sensor is compatible with the company’s Permalign abrasivejet cutting head.
