Hydro-abrasive waterjet cutting has made remarkable strides in recent years and, today, it’s one of the most effective machining methods. Waterjet cutting is seen as a major machine tool process technology and certainly one for the future.
It offers customers a unique combination of flexibility, simplicity and precision unparalleled in other available technologies today. The small cutting widths and omni-directional cutting mean the machines can cut virtually any material with exceptionally high precision. Waterjet cutting offers extreme accuracy with tight tolerances and is especially suited to composites.
PRV Engineering has been operating since 1986 and has come a long way since manufacturing pressings for the food packaging industry. Over time, they have become a true one-stop-shop providing the highest quality precision engineering and custom fabrication services. Today, PRV provides a complex and diverse range of products and services across various sectors. This includes aerospace, defence, rail, oil and gas, mining and construction among many others.
Waterjet cutting has increasingly become the ideal solution for many companies dealing with machine tool cutting procedures. Over and above the countless benefits of waterjet cutting machines, they can notably cut through nearly any material. This ranges from glass and metal to composites and stones which other cutters would typically struggle with, especially in terms of precision and superior results.
However, as good as waterjet cutting machines are, there
are several misconceptions and PRV decided to set the record straight. Fact is,
hydro-abrasive waterjet cutting has evolved remarkably and is one of the most
effective machining methods today. This article aims at busting 8 common myths
and shed some light on the services available at PRV Engineering.
Today, CNC Machining is involved in so many industries as these machines have revolutionised the manufacturing sector. These machines are widely used and some of the major players include aerospace, automotive, medical manufacturing, construction and woodworking.
Deep hole drilling, often referred to as gun-drilling,
is a highly-specialised machining operation that only a select few engineering
companies can perform. This method is used when high-precision round bores are vital
to the operation. It produces holes that can be controlled within very tight
tolerances, giving much greater accuracy compared to conventional drilling
