Ceeco Bartell, a continued capability evolution

In the world of manufacturing and design 3-dimensional (3D) modeling allows for improved insight and increased control over the ultimate success in the manufacturing of various components leading to improved quality and production flexibility. With the ability to import 3D models and cut hundreds of near-net-shaped parts from sheets of material in one machine setup waterjet technology has been transformative in raw material prep and finished product realization. Bartell’s design engineers, manufacturing engineers, and machinist are working together to take full advantage of these capabilities with the addition of a Omax MAXIEM 1530 Waterjet to Bartell’s production center.

A waterjet produces cutting force by using a high-pressure pump to generate a flow of pressurized water through a nozzle located in the cutting head. Inside the nozzle, the pressurized water passes through a small-diameter hole to form a jet of water. The jet then passes through a section where a granular abrasive is added into the water stream. The resulting mixture of water and abrasive, or slurry, exits the nozzle as a cutting stream traveling at very high speed.
