Abrasive Waterjet Machining an overview

Abrasive waterjet machining (AWJM), as a technological method, was developed in 1930 in the mining industry. Compared with AWJM, the abrasive slurry jet machining (ASJM) or sometimes abrasive water suspension jet (AWSJM), operates at roughly two orders of magnitude lower pressure and uses a premixed slurry concentration.
