First indigenously built water jet machine launched in BangaloreFebruary 14th, 2009 - 5:10 pm ICT by ANI
Bangalore, Feb 14, (ANI): The Anjani Technoplast Limited (ATL) on Friday introduced an indigenously built water-jet machine with application in aerospace and defence industry here.
ATL marketing manager Sunil Sharma claimed that the water jet could cut through titanium, steel aluminium and alloys as well as composite materials.
This is a high pressure technology. We can even cut steel up to 200 mm. We have supplied machines to various customers like titanium cutting, external steel cutting so this is a perfectly Indian machine. The first Indian manufacturers of such kinds of machines, he said.
The equipment uses a high-pressure stream of water for cutting or cleaning purposes. It works by flowing a large volume of water through a nozzle.
Sharma said the machine could be used in the aerospace and defence industry, besides building and construction, glazing and woodwork.
Sharma stated that the response has been good for aerospace and defence industry.
If we go for heat generation cutting that will deflect the material properties. This is a cool cutting property and there is no deflection in the material, he said.
The equipment is priced at around six lakh rupees. (ANI)
