The Orifice section covers the jewels that focus water, creating the stream that cuts - i.e. the part that makes waterjet cutting possible. The orifice has a huge impact on edge quality, efficiency with abrasive, wear on mixing tubes, and cut speed.
Waterjet Orifices go by many names: nozzles, nozzle assemblies, diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and jet tips are some examples.
IWP knows waterjet and has spent a significant amount of time testing and analyzing the many options available, which led us to the DP-E cutting head which combines the orifice and mixing chamber into a simple insert, to protect the cutting head body, and provide the best alignment of water and abrasive down the center of the mixing tube.
More orifice sizes are available - please contact us with feedback or questions!
