Proposal number EXAW-1999-01408

Acronym900 MPA UHP

Proposal title900 MPa Ultra-High-Pressure Water Jets

AbstractThe goal of the project is to lead the waterjet (WJ) technology to new fields of application

by developing a high efficient 900 MPa WJ system. The efficiency of a WJ is mainly

depending on the hydraulic energy, the product of volume flow rate and pressure. The

industry need tools which create small width of cut with high cutting speed. With high

pressure the nozzle diameter can be reduced by higher density of hydraulic energy

compared to a state-of-the-art system with 400 MPa. The specific properties of water

(liquid-solid transition) and abrasives under ultra-high-pressure will be investigated and

solved in this project. Requirements and reliability of pump and components have to be

new defined. The fact, that European companies are in minority on the market of WJ

cutting, shows the importance of this project. The development of this WJ tool which is

able to cut thin metal plates without abrasives will open new markets in Europe and outside

of the European Community.
