Abstract

In the manufacturing industry different methods are used to provide the fastest, cheapest and the most cost-effective way of facilitating the process of cutting with the minimum surface deformation. Apart from the conventional methods, non-traditional methods such as abrasive water jet (AWJ), laser, plasma, underwater plasma and wire erosion are used intensely for the cutting of hard-to-cut materials and products. Research has been conducted on the AWJ method. Brass materials are widely used in industry. In this study the results of the cutting process for brass material with AWJ were investigated. Based on the results the ideal cutting method for the investigated material was found to be AWJ.
