Abstract

A modern method of cutting materials is the abrasive water jet cutting method. It is a method that is in full ascension regarding the level of usability in production. In order to have the adequate setup for water jet cutting on a certain system, the surface quality, the kerf aspect, the shape and respectively the form of the obtained part have to be analysed. This paper presents the results obtained after cutting one square shaped part, made of 1C45 material. In the study, there were analysed both the inside and the outside of the cut, the kerf width, the aspect of the taper and the profile deviation.
