Abstract: Abrasive Jet Machine (AJM) widely used for cutting brittle materials. The present study focus on experimental investigation for performance parameters like Material Removal Rate (MRR) and Surface Roughness (SR) with variation in controlling parameters. Here, air pressure, abrasive particle temperature and speed of mixing chamber considered as controlling parameters for measurement of their effects on performance parameters of AJM. Compare to conventional method of AJM, unique feature of heating jacket and rotary mechanism provided in the newly developed AJM for experimental purpose. Experimental results reveal that the MRR and SR gets increased with increase in pressure, temperature and speed of mixing chamber.
