High Pressure Abrasive Waterjet Machine for Hard Ceramic Cutting
CGCRI, Kolkata procured a very high pressure waterjet cutting machine that operates at a maximum pressure of 6200bar. The high pressure water-abrasive mixture is ideal for cutting very hard ceramics, composites and glass products. The machine is installed for the first time in the eastern region and such a high pressure machine is the first of its kind in India. The machine will be utilized in many in-house projects and for outside agencies in future.
