Abrasive jet machining (AJM) is one of the modern machining processes where high velocity jet of abrasives mixed with dehumidified pressurized gas is made. PDF | Abrasive jet machining (AJM) is a manufacturing technology based on erosion localization and intensification. AJM has a progressively. PDF | As Abrasive jet machining (AJM) is similar to sand blasting and effectively removes hard and brittle materials. AJM has been applied to rough working.

Mass flow rate of abrasive abraslve usually controlled by Mixing Ratio, whose effects are also discussed later in this section. It forces the abrasive jet over the workpiece. Retrieved from ” https: Cutting and drilling hole —AJM can also be utilized for cutting various shapes as well as for drilling holes.
Higher SOD causes spreading of jet and thus its cross-sectional area increases with the sacrifice of jet velocity. Glass can also be frosted by abrasive jet machining. Effects of impingement angle on AJM performance.
Applications of Abrasive Jet Machining (AJM) Process
Most commonly, aluminium oxide or silicon carbide particles are used. Nontraditional Manufacturing Processes by G. Also a good appearance may sbrasive be obtained if engraving is carried out by AJM.
You may also Read: The following factors affect the choice of a pattern. Effects of abrasives on AJM performance As discussed earlier, shape, size, strength, material and flow rate of abrasive can influence machining performance.
Abrasive jet machining is best suited for machining brittle and heat sensitive materials like glass, quartz, sapphire, ceramics etc, It is used for drilling holes, cutting slots, cleaning hard surfaces, deburring, polishing etc.
Why different abrasives produce different MRR? In the mixing chamber, abrasive powder is fed. Mild steel is the most commonly used steel. The inside diameter ID of the nozzle through which abrasive particles flow is about 0. Disadvantages of Abrasive Jet Machining: I am the founder and former editor-in-chief of Mechteacher.
However, variation in size in the entire volume should be low otherwise estimation or assessment will not be accurate.
A vibrator is used to control the feed of the abrasive powder. Machinint conventional abarsive operation is carried out, some unwanted tiny metal parts remain attached to the edges after the completion of operation, which are known as burr. Cutting and drilling holes Apart barasive above main applications of AJM, it can also be utilized for cutting various shapes as well as for drilling holes.
Abrasive Jet Machining (AJM) – Process, Parameters, Equipment, MRR
Material removal rate and its estimation Knowledge of material removal rate MRR is beneficial for selecting process parameters machkning choosing feed rate of the nozzle.
Upon impact, hard abrasive particles gradually remove material by erosion and sometime assisted by brittle fracture. Another disadvantage is that the process produces a tapered cut. Finnie ; Some observations on the erosion of ductile metals; Wear; Vol.
Nozzle used in abrasive jet machining Primary function of nozzle in abrasive jet machining is to convert pressure energy of the pressurized gas-abrasive mixture into kinetic energy in the form of high velocity jet. Size of abrasives also influences quality of cut as well as material removal rate.
Carrier gas pressure and its flow rate are two paramount factors that determine performance and machining capability. Nozzle life is less. What is Mixing Ratio in abrasive jet machining? It compresses the carrier gas to a pressure of 15 — 20bar. I am a mechanical engineer with a passion for technical stuff. Deburring When conventional machining operation is carried out, some unwanted tiny metal parts remain attached to the edges after the completion of operation, which are known as burr.
Metal removal rate is low In certain circumstances, abrasive particles might settle over the workpiece. It also helps protecting workers from lung dieses caused by exposing into atmosphere containing excessive tiny abrasive dust.
