Finishing Options

We provide various surface finish options. If your required surface treatment is not listed below, feel free to contact us for more options.

Bead Blasted

Bead blasting produces a matte texture, removing all the marks of machining tools. It applies to ABS, Aluminum, Brass, Stainless Steel, and Steel parts.

Brushing

Brushing is achieved by applying an abrasive brush to the metal surface, which produces a unidirectional satin finish. And it is not recommended for highly corrosive materials.

Anodizing

Anodizing involves adding an aluminum oxide coating to aluminum and its alloys. The layers, which come in various colors, increase strength and shield the surface from corrosion.

Powder coating

Powder coating is the electrostatically applying of dry powder to the surface. It produces a thin layer providing excellent resistance to wear, corrosion, and abrasion.

Black-Oxide

Black oxide finish reduces surface reflectivity and offers mild corrosion protection. It involves adding a thin layer of magnetite to the surface.

 

Electroplating

Electroplating increases the hardness of the steel &aluminum parts. It offers excellent corrosion, wears, and abrasion resistance.

Polishing

Physical rubbing of a metal surface to create a shiny surface is called a polishing surface finish. It increases the reflectivity and does not affect the dimensional stability of parts.

Technology Overview

Introduction

Are you working on projects that need precise cuts without any thermal damage? Then, the water-jet cutting process is fully capable of fulfilling your requirement.

Abrasive media, Water-jet Pressure, and many parameters need to maintain according to material and required specification, so It is a bit of a complicated process. But Prolean makes it easy for you. We are committed to ensuring that our customers are satisfied. Our water jet cutting machines, with CNC guidance and Experienced engineers, are ready to meet your needs.

What is the Water-jet Cutting?

Water-jet cutting is the process of narrow line cutting to raw material using a high-pressure water jet. The water jet erodes the specific position to separate the workpiece into two parts. It is a straightforward cold-cutting process, and the cutting temperature only dwells between 40 to 60 0 C.It is based on the principle of water erosion. When a high-velocity jet of Water strikes the surface, material removal occurs.

A pure water jet is applicable for the softer materials, but to cut the more rigid materials, some abrasive particles are mixed with the Water for machining. The function of abrasive particles is to enhance the cutting ability of the water jet.

Advantages

  • The water-jet cutting is capable of producing complex & Intricate cuts in material. In addition, It has greater precision in the machining.
  • The machining area is kept completely clean and free of burrs and dust during this operation. Furthermore, it offers exceptional edge quality.
  • Because it is the cold-cutting process, the thermal damage to the workpiece is negligible.
  • It gives flexibility in cutting position as any location can be targeted with the jet.
  • There is no need to change tools, so it operates highly efficiently.

Types of Water-jet Cutting

Pure Water and abrasive water jet cutting are the two forms of water jet cutting. The main distinction between them is whether or not the abrasive particles mixed with the Water. Abrasive water jet cutting is capable of cutting hard materials that cannot be eroded by Water alone. In contrast, pure water jet cutting is used to cut softer materials, including paper, fabric, rubber, foam, and felt. Another distinction is that a pure water jet cutter lacks a mixing chamber.

Diamond, ruby, lead beads, garnet, or sands are used as abrasive materials, mixed with Water in the mixing chamber, and a high-pressure jet targets the cutting location. The abrasive particles eat away & erode the material to complete the cutting.

Applications

Since the Water-jet is a precise, effective, and environmentally friendly approach to cutting both soft & hard materials, several industries use this technology.

  • Manufacturing
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Food
  • Agriculture
  • Electrical & Electronics
  • Hardware
  • Jewelry

Water-jet Cutting FAQ

What are the Material Options for Water-jet cutting at Prolean?
We have various material options for Water- jet cutting to contribute to your project: Plastic, Ceramic, Wood, Glass, Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum and its alloys, Copper, Brass, Titanium, and more.
What is the range of tolerance I can achieve with Water-jet cutting?
Our advanced computer-controlled Water-jet machines can maintain a tolerance of ± 0.25mm.
How much thickness can be cut with a water jet?
Materials having a thickness of up to 30 mm can be cut using the water-jet cutting process. However, the upper limit can be reached up to 40mm for softer materials.
What benefits do water-jet cuts have over laser cuts?
While water-jet cutting can be used to cut various materials, including wood, porcelain, and more rigid materials like tempered steel, laser cutting is only appropriate for a small range of materials. Another significant advantage is that Lase cutting approach has the potential for thermal damage at the cutting age. Water jet eliminates the risk because it does not use heat to cut the material, and the working temperature can only reach up to 40 to 600 C.
How may water-jet cutting be customized to meet unique requirements?
We are extremely sensitive to the needs and requirements of our customers. By adjusting numerous parameters, including abrasive media and water-jet pressure, we cater to the customer’s needs.
What is the working pressure of water jet cutting?
In the Water jet cutting process, we used the nozzle with a very small diameter (0.1 mm) that can pressurize the Water Up to 392 MPa.
