RIPTIDE: A Fully Automated System for Waterjet Abrasive Removal

Posted by RT Engineering on May 17, 2016

The benefits of waterjet cutting are widespread, which is why it is such a popular manufacturing process.

However, the problems that arise from waterjet collection tank drainage essentially negate the advantages. To clear the collection tank, employees must manually remove tons of spent cutting abrasive—which hinders productivity and production, and puts workers at risk of injury.

      • Speed and simplicity
      • Versatility
      • Increased workplace safety
      • And more.
