Abstract

Abrasive water jet (AWJ) cutting is one of the advanced machining techniques to solve the different issues raised in the manufacturing process. Machinability of the material, surface damage, profile cutting, micro-/macro-product making, production time and cost are some of the problems caused. Research on AWJ has addressed the major problems to produce engineering components under the eco-friendly environment. It is a short report on AWJ cutting which is used to explain the basic problems and the principle while machining different engineering materials. In this paper, the influence of input process parameters, erodent/abrasive materials and bulk material properties along response on kerf wall inclination, material removal rate and surface quality are discussed in detail. In addition, the electron microscopic images are used to discuss the wear mechanism on different materials. The information discussed in the paper will support young researchers to understand the AWJ process and its scope.
