On-line monitoring of depth of cut in AWJ cutting


Monitoring of the abrasive waterjet (AWJ) cutting process has become increasingly important. The present paper proposes a model for on-line depth of cut monitoring based on the acoustic emission (AE) response to the variation in AWJ depth of cut, instead of the expensive and impractical vertical cutting force monitoring. The main objective is to use the AE… (More)
