English term or phrase: tailcut
Partial cutting / tail cutting:
Partial Cutting means that the Jet is not cutting all the way through the Material.
This is evident when the Jet exits horizontally (opposite the Nozzle’s traverse direction) instead of downward into the Tank.
If this happens, press Start/ Stop immediately.
Refer to the website resources section for more information.
Allowing your machine to partially cut puts a lot of stress on components that are not intended to be blasted with the abrasive stream and abrasive (ie. the side of the tank, windows, and water sealing surfaces like the bellows).
Your machine components are designed to handle this for a few seconds every so often as it is inevitable that a tailcut happens every so often.
However if you allow for cuts to proceed with tail cutting this will cause permanent damage to your machine.
