Streszczenie / Summary:

The article presents the quality model of the process of high-pressure abrasive waterjet cutting of aluminum alloy, type PA4, as well as the results of research that verified the accuracy of the determined dependence. The experimental works were performed on two experimental setups: machining AWJ center type RCT 32 by Resato company, as well as the prototype workstation constructed on the basis of plasma cut-off machine type TOPAZ-S by Eckert company. The geometric structure of the cut surfaces was measured using spatial profilometer Talysurf CLI 2000 equipped with a non-contact laser sensor. Nonlinear estimation module of Statistica program was used for qualitative development of the model of high-pressure abrasive aluminum alloy waterjet cutting process. The statistically elaborated dependence can be implemented in machine tool controllers designed for abrasive waterjet cutting of materials.
