Waterjet Cutting Myths Debunked

waterjet cutting

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.

Deep Hole Drilling And Multi-Tasking Machining

deep hole drilling

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 methods.

What Is CNC Machining and How Does It Work?

In today’s modern manufacturing world, not too many products are made without CNC machining. This includes the basics like toys, household appliances and machines but also cars, aeroplanes and medical devices among others. CNC machining is incredibly versatile and many industries cannot do without it.

Some of the main industries that rely heavily on CNC machining include aerospace, automotive, medical manufacturing and woodworking. Here, they use it use for various operations such as drilling and routing where the aerospace industry favours CNC machining because it offers the five-axis option when required. This functionality means they can more easily manage hard-to-cut materials such as Inconel.

In healthcare or the medical sector, CNC machining plays an essential role for micro-machining. This involves fabricating all the tiny parts made from different types of materials for various life-saving applications. Examples of CNC machined parts are pacemakers or titanium joints not to mention tools and implements for medical professionals.
