Abstract

Abrasive Jet Machining (AJM) is the process of material removal from a work piece by the application of a high-speed stream of abrasive particles carried in a gas or air medium from a nozzle. The material removal process is mainly by erosion. The AJM will chiefly be used to cut shapes in hard and brittle materials like glass, ceramics etc. the machine will be automated to have 3 axes travel. The different components of AJM are Compressor, Vibrator, dehumidifier, Pressure Regulator, and Dust filter, Nozzle, Pressure gauge etc. The different components are selected after appropriate design calculations. In paper contains the Abrasive Jet Machine design and fabrication by using available hardware and software etc. taking into consideration of commercially available components. Care has been taken to use less fabricated components rather than directly procuring them, because, the lack of accuracy in fabricated components would lead to a diminished performance of the machine.
