1. HIGH-PRESSURE PUMP
It generates a water pressure of up to 6,000 bar, which is used to cut any material. BFT offers different systems for this purpose.
Consists of a PC with special software that converts CAD or CAM files into custom code allowing control of the cutting head.
3. WATER CUTTING UNIT
A surface on which the material to be cut is attached. Water and abrasive from the water jet collect below the surface.
The abrasive (e.g. garnet sand) is collected here and then transported and dosed.
For stepless abrasive dosing – with the ABRAmaster via mechanical control, with the TWINJET® via electronic control.
The water jet is ejected with the set pressure here. The abrasive is optionally added by means through a hose.
7. PNEUMATIC LINE
8. HIGH-PRESSURE LINE
The two types of pumps
Basically, a distinction is made between two types of high-pressure pumps: High-pressure pumps with intensifier or direct drive system. Both use different systems to generate the high pressure required for efficient cutting.
