Economical Considerations over 3D Printing Components for Abrasive Water Jet Machinery
The purpose of this research is to analyse the technological and economical aspects of making 3D print pieces to produce functional parts and subassemblies for abrasive waterjet processing equipment. The authors of this paper intend to make a clarification on the technological and economic approaches of material that can be used to make such a reference in terms of economic efficiency and technology. In the paper are analysed all the aspects involved in generating the necessary elements on the mechanical side of them by FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling). The paper is structured in a five chapters in which it is presented in a logical order the analysis of the materials that can be used in the mentioned technological field, the technological parameters specific to the analysed process, the method of generating the parts and their realization from a practical point of view and presenting the main economic aspects that involve the manufacturing costs of specific parts through 3D printing technology for components of water jet processing equipment with suspension abrasive media.
