BP-M Series

Robustness and flexibility, the BP-M series high pressure water jet cutting machine incorporates the advantages of the standard series, with the added strength that is required by very demanding customers in order to cut thick and large surface area materials.

The modular construction of these water jet cutting machines simplifies transport and offers customers more flexibility, allowing machine extensions to meet future cutting requirements by adding new modules, a second cutting head or a new bridge with more heads. The possibilities to adapt the high pressure water jet cutting machine configuration to the needs of the customer are endless. In this way we ensure efficiency both in the present and in the future.

This is why TCI cutting developed the BP-M series of high pressure water jet cutting machines.

CUTTING METHODS

Water jet cutting can be classified as a mechanical method.

The energy generated by the movement of the water at a speed three times higher than the speed of sound is utilised both for pure water cutting and for abrasive cutting and is then applied to the part being cut in order to produce micro-erosion.

Water jet cutting does not generate residual heat at the cutting edge and thus the physical properties of the material are not changed.

PURE WATER CUTTING

This method is suitable for cutting fabric, elastomers, fibres, plastics, food stuffs, paper and other materials and is based on the use of water pressure up to 6,500 bar with an equivalent speed  of 800-1000 m/sec, passing through a diamond orifice (with a diameter of tenths of a millimetre) targeted on the material to be cut.  In this way, the potential energy is converted into kinetic energy, resulting in a water jet with speeds capable of cutting the material.

ABRASIVE CUTTING

With materials for which pure water cutting is not sufficient, abrasive cutting is required. Using this method, a fine grain abrasive material is added to the water. The union of water, air and abrasive takes place in the mixing chamber to further accelerate and focus it. The result of this method is the production of a powerful water jet, with the capacity to cut, separate or perforate materials of varying thickness and density, such as metal, ceramics, natural stone or tempered glass, among others.
