AWJM,Turning,Chuck and motor assembly,Worktable design,


Abrasive water jet had proven to be a suitable unconventional machine technique for cut-through operation. Using abrasive water jet turning only limited studies are available. Apart from usual machining practice in Abrasive Water Jet Machine (AWJM), the installation of the chuck with motor assembly as a unit similar set up like conventional lathe machine will enhance the machinability of AWJM. From the earlier studies, it is understood that the author has performed the machinability studies using this experimental set up in AWJM. But no standard procedure is described as the installation procedure of chuck and motor assembly in AWJM. Considering this, a review is conducted on the design and implementation of turning setup in an abrasive water jet machine. Based on the acquired knowledge through a literature survey and also, considering vibration, assembly, and safety factors, a new design is proposed. The author ensures that implementing this setup in an abrasive water jet machine will enhance the research work to a higher level of significance.
