Main Article Content
This article deals with measurement of the thermal gradient on material during abrasive water jet cutting. The temperature was measured by thermo camera before the technological process started, during the AWJ cutting process technology, and just after the cutting process. We performed measurements on several types of materials. We calculated the approximate amount of energy during the AWJ cutting process technology that changes into thermo energy, which is the current water pressure drained in a catcher tank.
