Abstract

Abrasive jet machining (AJM) is a process that removes material from a workpiece through the use of abrasive particles entrained in a high-velocity gas stream. This article discusses the operation of principal components, advantages, and disadvantages of the AJM system. It describes several factors that determine the characteristics of the AJM process. These include flow rates of the jet stream, type and size of abrasive powders, and distance between the workpiece and nozzle.
