Richel, Inc. is holding its 44th Waterjet Cutting Techniques Course at its corporate offices in Kent, OH, from September 11 to 13. All existing waterjet operators and owners are encouraged to attend -- along with anyone considering the purchase of a system. Richel, Inc. is a leader in the field of reselling used waterjets, which are more accessible as the industry matures. The course intends to explain what one needs to keep up with the changes in hardware and software. Attendees will strip and rebuild an intensifier in the shop; 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); find shortcuts to make the cutting process easier and more efficient; physically run a waterjet system (loading a program, clamping and fixturing, changing nozzles and orifices) and perform general maintenance on the machine.
