GLE produces several components of waterjet machines. A few of these components including plugers, bushings, nozzles and poppets. Materials used in manufacturing of these items includes cermics, nickel carbides and steels. Different materials are used for each varying application. We would be happy to assist you in choosing the correct material for your project!
Due to the accuracy required by waterjet machines, the waterjet plungers and components must be made with high precision.
These components include the nozzles, the poppets that create the flow, and plungers that are used for pressurizing the system. The surface finish is also critical in these components. A high surface finish will increase the wear life of parts, allowing for lower replacement costs and better performance. GLE-Precision is the chosen trusted supplier of multiple waterjet manufacturers for these types parts and other components not mentioned. Our decades of experience in tight tolerances and high surface finishes have helped us build relationships and remain on the cutting edge of waterjet technology.
Waterjet Components: Surface Finish Requirements
We can achieve a .4RA (.01016 micron) or better surface finish on products such as ceramic plungers and carbide bushings. Does your application involve abrasive materials? The surface finish can improve the wear life and performance of your product. GLE-Precision has decades of experience in lapping and we offer precision lapping services. We have pride in producing waterjet plungers and components with a flawless finish, free of any imperfections.
