Richel to hold waterjet cutting course

May 10, 2005

Richel Inc. is holding its 43 rd Waterjet Cutting Techniques Course at its corporate offices in Kent, Ohio, July 17 - 19.

The course, conducted by Richard Ward, a professional engineer who has specialized in waterjet cutting since 1992, is designed for current waterjet equipment owners and operators as well as those looking to buy or install a system but unsure if waterjet technology is right for the application. It will discuss hardware and software changes and practical solutions to standard issues.

Attendees will strip and rebuild an intensifier; discover the advantages of multiple-head cutting along with when to and when not to use multiple heads; prepare and program a job for waterjet cutting (raster to vector conversion and CAD/CAM); learn shortcuts to simplify the cutting process and increase efficiency; operate a waterjet system (loading a program, clamping and fixturing, changing nozzles and orifices); and perform general maintenance on the machine.
