From the given link,the line which I am having doubt is mentioned below -
"Abrasive Water Jet Cutting (AWJC) is one of the most suitable cutting processes for glass type brittle materials due to method’s unique properties such as multidirectional cutting capacity, cool machining process that is best suited for machining brittle and heat-sensitive materials like glass, quartz, sapphire, and ceramics etc."
My specific doubt from the paragraph is mentioned below-
Glass is a brittle material, hence we used non conventional method ...
But I am not able to understand why specifically we used AWJC?
In this following paragraph, it did mention about multidirectional cutting capacity as well as cool machining, that is what I am not getting to understand.
Can anyone explain in simple terms,
- What is multidirectional and cooling?
- Why other non-conventional method isn't used?
