CNC waterjet ceramic tile cutter is the most flexible and cost-effective cutting machine available. As a cold-cutting process that eliminates slag deformation and dross wast--unfortunate effects found in plasma and laser cutting process. Moreover APW small waterjet cutting machine enable you to cut a variety of applications with ease. Whatever the shape, dimension or material, our easy-to-use software makes the job easy.
There are four parts in our small waterjet ceramic tile cutter . They are intensifier pump; cutting table; CNC controller and Auto abrasive feeder.

Dual-Core Waterjet Debut
APW pioneered “Dual-Core” waterjet, which integrated SIEMENS motor, imported REXROTH hydraulic pump and hydraulic valves assembly, American A&V intensifier, American high pressure tube and stainless steel water tank. This dual intensifiers design (for mini waterjet cutting machine ) represents another landmark in APW history.
They has been widely used in all APW waterjet series. UP to now, APW is still the only waterjet manufacturer holding this advanced technology in China.
We adopt the imported components (for mini waterjet cutting machine) like Rexroth hydraulic pump; USA intensifier; Siemens motor; Omron PLC; Yaskawa servo driver, Yuken direction control valves etc. The whole parts of intensifier is assembled in USA (not just some parts), most of the smaller parts are also imported from USA to ensure its good stability during cutting, durability and long working service life.
The features of small waterjet cutting machine

The cutting speed for small water jet cutting machine
The cutting speed of small waterjet cutting machine varies depending on the material, thickness, desired cut quality, water pressure and the machine itself configuration, Generally for APW waterjet, you could find the following speed just for your reference.
|Material||Thickness(mm)||Cutting speed of 300Mpa pump(mm/min)||Cutting speed of 380Mpa pump(mm/min)|
|Glue Chipped Glass||10||450||540|
1. What are the benefits of purchasing a mini waterjet comparing CNC plasma or a laser ?
Small waterjet cutting machine can cut almost anything – from metal to stone to glass to composites to ceramic.
Laser and plasma cut with heat, and so can only cut materials that have the right thermal properties. Metal is almost always the target material in industry for these heat-based processes. And mild steel is almost always the metal that is cut by them. In addition, plasma can only cut things that are electrically conductive. To optimize laser and plasma cutting, change to gasses is required. No change to waterjet parameters, except speed, is usually required for any material.
Mini waterjet cutting machine can cut very thin and up to 150mm (sometimes more) of any metal, glass, stone, composite, etc.
Laser cuts very thin and up to 20mm.
Plasma cuts from about 25mm up to 30mm.
Nothing cut by a plasma or laser will be as high of quality of an edge as a mini waterjet cutting machine. We leave behind a smooth edge. No heat affected zones or mechanical stresses are introduced. The plasma and laser cut with heat (we cut with supersonic erosion). Plasma and laser therefore will leave behind a heat affected zones, mechanical stresses, and especially with plasma, dross 'drips' on the edge.

2. What kind of material does your mini waterjet cutting machine can cut?
There are plenty materials our mini waterjet cutting machine can cut , such as metal stone glass foam plastic rubber, ect.
4-axis was professionally designed for mable pattern and medallion.
5-axis was professionally designed for 3D materials.
3. What's your mini waterjet cutting machine's max.cutting thickness?
The max.cutting thickness of our mini waterjet cutting machine depends on the materials you cut .
Generally speaking, the thickness of our mini waterjet cutting machine can be up to 150mm, virtually Z constraint is the only limit to thickness.
